So I have been waiting for the UXL18 to come back into stock and I was going to build a small sealed box for it until we move and then I was going to build a GJALLARHORN with it, but I have been wondering how the Littlewrecker would compare to it? It seems the both dig pretty deep for a horn, but the Littlewrecker takes up less floor space and can be built for cheaper.
I am curious on everyone's thoughts as how these two compare and what are the pros and cons of both of them.
In a nutshell? In actual use, from 0 dB to 120 dB, with a typical music or movie playback, they are essentially equal. The LilWrecker goes a bit deeper, the Gjallarhorn gets a lot louder.
In my measurements, the LilWrecker measured -3 dB at ~15 Hz and -10 at at 13 Hz.
According to the data at Data-bass, the Gjallarhorn measured -3 dB at 21 and -10 at 15 Hz.
The LilWrecker is larger than the Gjallarhorn, and uses a much less expensive driver.
So - you wanna get louder than 120 dB? Well, the LilWrecker would make smoke and bad noises if you tried to go for more, the Gjallarhorn would keep cranking for nearly 10 more dBs.
Distortion? Well, the LMS-U is a FAR better driver than the CVX..... it is really not even a contest.
