I do have enough of that veneer to do that set of 6.1.P's you have been thinking about. :cool: We may never be able to get that veneer again, as it is very special.

That is correct, if you are not utilizing the full headroom of the subwoofers you can "use it up" in the low end by boosting aggressively, if you hit the limiters just reduce the boost a little.

I am afraid you are not reading the distortion graphs quite right, some of your conclusions are in reality the opposite. To compare distortion you cannot just go by the sweep level, without factoring...

In the 18.0 size box the V2 motor on the 18 offers some benefits but the 21 offers better use of the enclosure size, for very little extra cost compared to an 18V2, and offers most...

The 21 uses the same motor as the 18.2, so it actually has higher force/moving mass ratio than the 18.0, a little lower than the 18.2. The 15 uses the same motor as the 18.0, so it has a higher...

The low end efficiency on the 18.2 driver, per driver, is actually higher than the 18.0 driver, in spite of the smaller box. And distortion is lower across the board. And as the Databass measurements...

By the sounds of it the best solution for you would be the 21.0. In almost every aspect it is between the 18.0 and 18.2. So far I like the 18.2 best for sound quality, but the 21.0 is very close. The...
