So why not just say I know the Submersive is better and leave it at that. Maybe then us trolls can go climb back under our houses. Instead you waste time saying everything but that and defend the JL. I had my Submersive first then got the JL. I could have kept either but that knocking from hitting the limiter got annoying real quick.

I owned a rhythmik fv15hp, svs PB 12 plus and other big subs.
Lots of output no doubt but it wasn't musical. And it didn't suit my room.
Swopped to the f113. Deep and tight bass.
Now I use two E 112 subs located in different positions which balances out the bass suckout at my MLP.

I get lower output at the deepest bass but I get quality and I have my rumble and thump.

So you like your seaton. We get that. Enjoy it and leave us to our " expensive "high WAF and musical JL subs.

Ps : a smaller sub means I can place it in the best spot which is often not under the screen and live happily with my better half.
When you get a wife mate you will know what I mean.

Uhhhhhh... that's exactly what I did; you might have noticed if you put a little thought into my posts. Apparently, a casual rebuttal was too much. I've tried to be relatively calm and collected with my responses, so perhaps your frustration is misguided. But now I'm wondering why I waste my breath. Perhaps it's human nature, as Blazar suggests.

+1, nice to hear you've done your homework, Pete. I've always found something special about the sound of the Fathoms to my ear. Nothing quantifiable, of course, but that's not important to me. What they can do, particularly under my constraints, is truly remarkable.

I have 4 F112 which Ive been told is more than enough for my room. Placed correctly by a HAA calibrator, can't go wrong. Rumble is there!!

What is this madness? Haven't you been reading? You can't be happy with Fathoms. Zen can only be achieved by that other Sub company. Drink your Kool Aid and submit to their cult.
