Pretty darn good. It is a nice clean driver with loads of deep bass. Bring a big amp with lots of power because they need plenty of juice.

How many watts are you planning to put on it and what amp are you going to use?

While not nearly as cool looking, a single 18" LMS Ultra 5400 has pretty equivalent performance in the same volume enclosure and has less cost sunk in drivers.

I would honestly go with the epic over the lms-r. You could almost get six for the price of three lms-r drivers and build a pair or build a scaled up version of the paradigm F2. The epic will play higher if you need it to and two epics are better than one lms-r. The lms-r was a great deal before the big price hike in 2011.
