That's why the qesution about the JL Audio products. Would it actually BE a bump over other products (Dayton, CSS, Adire, etc) at $220.

Maybe for some but I do not see any real advantage to the JL minus the name.

I would buy the Tempest X2 over the JL design. I would also go Scott @ Ficar audio and buy his new Q18s for that same price range.

Why do you think JL has an performance increase over other popular DIY drivers? Like Exodus, TCsound or AEspeakers? Those are the top 3 companies for home DIY subwoofers.

You can add Ficar now with their latest additions. Sick displacment (displacement is key to clean bass).

Good point about the 12W7 not going low enough for decent HT application. Currently, the outcome of the modelling of the 12W7 has an F3 of about 23hz. This is through WinISD pro - I don't think program that takes into account any room dynamics, but is a straight-up driver/box performance model.

I have a nice Yamaha 1/3 octave pro eq that could tailor the signal to boost below that, but then that would be defeating the original design goal, as the EQ goes for about $600.

Is that a sealed model?? Not bad and it can take power. Add a LT circuit and it might be pretty good.

btw, No need to spend $600 on an EQ. When perfect EQing products cost less then $200 these days for all the EQing you would ever need including LT circuits/HPF down into single digits.

In a smaller - ish size room.... the F112 gets to about 18-19hz, and does it well with DSP... I really loved that sub - SQ, control and dynamices were awesome and it seriously pounded....

No reason it wouldn't be a good player - of coarse I would suggest twins...
