That growler is a beast above 40hz for sure!


Jeff it's awesome that you are putting your gear on data-bass! Looks like everything will be very successful against your ID competition based on the first two entries!


Congrats!

I think it's impressive that the Captivator did what it did with only 1400 watts. Keep in mind that all the passive and diy subwoofers are burst tested with either a 10,000 or 20,000 watt amplifier. The Captivator 1400 only has a 1400 watt amplifier. Subtract 9-12db from the passive and diy numbers to give you an idea of what they would do with 1400 watts. Looking at the cea-2010 burst testing, 16-50hz and 100-125hz the Captivator 1400 was the highest self powered subwoofer (Paradigm edged it out by 0.1db at 63hz and 2db at 80hz).

If you liked the Growlers data then wait to you see the Orbit Shifter PRO

Is that really correct Jeff? Doesn't Josh only push the DIY and passive subs with how much the drivers can actually handle? Otherwise he'd be burning up test drivers every time he tests one. I mean 10,000watts, how many drivers can handle that much power?

That could quickly become more expensive than becoming an owner.

Hmm, new line of reasoning for an upgrade....
