The Primus are more sensitive, but they draw more current for the same voltage. For the same wattage they are not much more sensitive. They will be heard as louder for the same level on your gain...

Yeah, the center speaker shouldn't be wired at all for this. The only speaker jacks that should be connected are the main left/right binding posts and the zone 2 clippy speaker jack posts. It's hard...

Lol, the Outlaw will be massively better than the Deftech. There is no doubt about that. It will not even be close.

Both the PB12 Plus and SB13 will be a big upgrade over the PB12 NSD. The PB12 Plus should have a roughly 6 db advantage throughout the bass range, which is double the output. The SB13 will have an...

I wouldn't wait to pull the trigger on the Outlaw sub, that sale is probably nearly over. The Outlaw subwoofer sales never last long.

Two good $600 subs would be better than three so-so $400 subs. I would be looking at a pair of Hsu VTF2s or Rythmik LV12r subs. Better sound quality, deeper extension, better accuracy, and so on.
