My first sub was a Mirage. Coincidentally, it was a "dual-opposed" design like the Submersive. Great little sub. Then I moved up to an Earthquake Supernova MKV-15. From that I moved to a pair of JL Audio F112's. Finally, I upgraded to a pair of Submersives, and then I added a third.
I've also heard the Velodyne DD-18, the Martin Logan Descent, the Klipsch THX Ultra2 system, some M&K subs, several Hsu subs, and several SVS subs.
The Submersives are definitely the finest subs I've ever heard. If you go back a few pages in this thread, you'll see my in-room graphs, and my listening impressions with the new HP 2,400 watt amps. The original amps were excellent... the new HP amps and the new DSP program take the Submersives to new and unprecedented levels.
The new amps are not available in a 240 volt configuration. If you're interested in a Submersive, and you live in a country with 240 volts AC, you'll only be able to get the previous 1,000 watt amp. Not that there's anything wrong with that.
