Add to that the sealed system and I really don't get it. Maybe it's playing way below 16 Hz, but even so, there should be lots of excursion. Maybe the volume was much higher in the V3601 video?
I'd imagine it's partly because he has so much headroom, that there's simply not much excursion needed to meet a -6 playback level in his room with twelve 18" drivers; and the T18 driver is all about sensitivity and less about xmax. Also, he has quite a bit of room gain below 20Hz. The new 01' drivers were designed with a lot more excursion for added deep bass output, but they're an entirely different animal.
