Nothing. I encourage it as well.
Guess I was trying to relate to the OP because, coming from the car audio scene, I too was convinced JL W7 was the
sub to have.
Since diving into AVS I've discovered many many products that trump the W7 from a performance/price standpoint. (i.e. - the UXL you reference above)
I personally am a huge advocate for the dual opposed design to which one could implement a pair of LMS-R's
for a comparable price to a single 13W7...
Now, with that said, the OP mentions that he already has a TC Sounds 18" and it's a bit "big." One area the W7 is hard to beat, as I'm sure many will agree, is performance in a small foot print. If a small form factor is the primary
goal, then I don't think he can get a much better driver. Granted, there might be some that offer 90% of the performance for 50% of the price, but I'll leave that debate to you guys.
I wonder if the OP is still around. He mentions that he wants to compliment his SVS sub. I'm wondering if that means matching the physical footprint.
