Not necessarily true. Only one midwoofer has more than 9mm of clean, one way x-max. And it's Arx. I have heard both, though I have only heard Arx pushed to it's x-max limits, and I would wager that in overall bass output Arx could keep pace with the Sierra-1's, if not exceed it since the box sizes are very similar.
Not making a "this is better than that" statement, just setting the record straight.
