not really but basic comparisons. i stated that my marty sounds most like my fv15hp when the fv is in 2 port with 14hz filter (18hz port tune) and medium damping.
in all honesty id like to learn more about how to use my amp and also REW before i give a more in depth comparison. i say this because there are so many options on the inuke that I'm not farmilar with such as buterworth 18 vs 24 vs all the other options. i just don't like to compare things until i feel i have a complete understanding of all my settings and what they are doing to affect the output, performance and any chariterist traits of the sound coming out.
right now i feel i have it setup with the fvs well because these simple steps..
1) started with one fv on. got the output at each freq with the single fv using spl meter.
2) turned second fv on and played with settings until i got about a 6db gain at all freqs from 15-80hz or so.
3) tunrned on the the marty sub w/ all other fvs on and played with it till i got max output at each freq, which ended up being around 5 db give or take a db or 2 a certain freqs. i ended up running phase 180 degrees and buterworth 18. it gave me best overall results. overall the marty seems to add 5dbs to the dual fvs.
i have also said i feel like the fvs stop a bit quicker and may even seem just a tat cleaner than my marty. however this could have more to do with something like the box i made or settings on the amp. Not necessarily the uxl 18 itself.
if you have any other questions please PM me as i am already wayyyy off topic lol
