I think what sk373 was trying to convey is that you're making a mashup of two different sets of data and trying to extrapolate an outcome based upon them. Both of those measurements would have had...

I'll post a link in this thread. It will be probably about 2 months though; I try not to do more than 1 review a month, and I already have 2 products ahead of the ULS.

I'm happy I was able to assist with your purchase. I suspect that you'll find a lot of the same qualities I did as time goes on.

The "something large and heavy moves freely inside the cabinet" is exactly how I would describe the sound I heard. It was the motor assembly from the driver, that and what was left of the basket it...

Man, those two aren't even close. Just because something is expensive doesn't mean it's also overrated. JL Audio is definitely not aimed at the "best bang for the buck!" crowd, so for those folks...

I haven't heard the SUB-1500, so I can't say for certain, but I doubt the NXG has more output. At $150 though it's quite a bargain.

Without knowing how tall your ceilings are we don't have a complete idea of the total volume that needs to be filled, but assuming a standard 8 feet you're just shy of 2900 ft^3. That's a little...

Dual 8's to a single 10 might be a step backward in total output. The Monoprice may extend deeper (key word being "may"), but almost for sure the output would be less.

Going from an MFW-15 to any of the units you're considering will be a downgrade. You may already know that, but I figured it was worth mentioning just in case.

They're claiming a $220 sub with a single 10" driver is able to hit 20Hz? At -10dB perhaps, but certainly not F3. That's the first I'm hearing of it though, so I don't have any experience with it.

Do you mean relative to the price, so over twice as good? Depends upon what you're looking for really. SQ wise the SVS would come out on top, but output wise probably not. A pair of F12's or...

"boom" or boomy? By doubling up the slope in the crossover region you can often 'clean up' the flabby sound which sometimes occurs. I often do that because I'm particularly sensitive to 'chesty'...
