I don't think I can say for sure which sound better because this is going by audio memory but the Cap1000 was a great sounding sub. I had duals and the bass was great. I had the same driver that was in the A7-900 in both ported and sealed DIY sonos. I would have to give the sound quality to the Cap1000(sounds just like the Cap with less output). Better for music but for movies I am not sure which I like better. I know I built 4 ported monsters that moved some serious air and tuned to 13.4 hz to boot. They would beat the Cap1000's for spl for sure(same X-max per driver or similar). The Caps are smaller. Then there is the VS 18.1 as well which I never heard. Since you are crossing these over at 80hz I would get whatever went the lowest or had the lowest tune to cover as much bandwidth as possible but that is just me. CHT also has a TC sounds ported 15 coming out!
