I had a great talk with Chad yesterday, what a cool dude and extremely passionate about building quality subs. I have to admit, the huge Conquest w/18" driver is calling my name and I may not be able to resist ordering one. I am finally realizing that to really feel the pressure from subsonics - the kind encoded on DVD's like WotW that properly reproduced will scare the crap out of you - a sub that can play in the deep teens at very high levels cleanly without port noise is required, so I am drooling over Tom Nousaine's in-room test number of 103.9db at 12.5hz with only 3.4% distortion
The subs I have cannot even pretend to come close to that kind of performance...
