Let me state empirically, that I have no vested interest or benefit from the AV123 company or its management nor employees.
I too incurred an amp that went dead on me within weeks of receiving my own MFW-15's. I called in and was sent a replacement within a week of the call. The amp has been performing splendidly since Feb 2008.
The early reviews of this sub and reasonable price caused a great demand from buyers. Indeed at the beginning, growing pains impacted this product, however these have tempered dramatically in recent months and are virtually are non existent.
Absolute SPL means little, if the sound your hearing is indeed inaccurate, or fails to be musical. Case in point stadium sound systems, loud yes, accurate...hmmm, lets guess
Get the picture?
As for the absolute SPL for the Servo 15, I too believe it is a DB or two higher than the MFW-15, however it is also less musical, ergo less desirable to the astute audiophile who eschews brand names or allegiances.
I say no more on the subject.
