There are obviously legitimate arguments to be made on both sides of the equation. But when the arguments are this unserious and sets up such straw men, debate is pointless.

If the statement that Ricci does in fact have a box for this is true, we should see soon enough how it performs. You won't get xmax data, but still.

No, in those cases, the output would be equal, assuming the 1000 watts is within the power range of the driver, yada yada yada. And you're correct about the mutual coupling bit. To further complicate...

I think we're all in agreement, but talking semantics. It takes 2 of the same driver on the same power for 3 db, hence the "double." You double the drivers and double the power and you get 6 dbs.

Right. Double the woofer gets you 3db more output. Double the power gets you 3db more output. Double woofer & double power gets you 6 dbs.

TO be fair, as some (including myself) pointed out--it gets that rating because of a blip at 37Hz that makes the -10db point much higher than it should be. No one who hears that track can seriously...

Per Data-bass.com measurements, it's about a full 2x the output of the SI HT-18 from 60 Hz on down. And it pulls even further away from the Dayton HO.

Yeah, I think so. Still kick myself over that. But I wasn't in need of them at the time. Still am not, honestly, given my current house. I'd just be shaking the studs loose more than I am now.

No, this was from a while back. Prior to the FTW-LTE (?) being released.

This is crazy how fast these are going. Makes me wonder what would happen if the FTW for $400 shipped group buy from a while back were to be repeated. :eek::eek::eek::eek:

I'm sure I've seen some tests done of at least a couple films' DVD vs BR tracks and they found no measurable difference. Except for perhaps a db in overall level, IIRC. Having trouble finding it on...

Lol. Ok, I guess you're just going to keep ignoring where I said that I had. Hey, if it sounds better to you, that's all that matters at the end of the day.

By definition, BR tracks will have higher bitrate audio than DVDs. Assuming that, and then assuming your contention that BR LFE is tighter/less sloppy, whatever because of the technical limitations...

I have and I disagree completely. Only way to eliminate psychoacoustics is a blind test. The bandwidth for LFE covers at most 1-120 Hz. For the rest of the audio spectrum 1-20,000 KHz is used. Big...
