The FVX15 uses the 400w Hypex UCD Class D amp. Does this fall into the category of "compact"?[/QUOTE]

Yes, the compact amp is found on the L12/L22/LV12R/LVX12/FVX15

I think the F8/FM8 too.

Well, I wanted to try one new sub placement for my single LV12R: the back left corner. The response was great from 19Hz to 50Hz and then a massive suckout from 50Hz to 80Hz in the near 20dB range.
