Right there is right! Here's a video of carp
's JTR captivator at my place during the KC subwoofer meet. This was the first time I heard a Captivator and I fell in love! :P The "Cap" at one point, not filmed, blew Luke's ballcap all the way back to the seating position. If you watch the dust moving around in the clip, especially at the end of the video when I stood back, you can really see just how much air the Captivator moves through its ports! One of my DJ friends, who works around big sound equipment all the time, recently came and watched a couple clips with me. He said with a sly confused grin "Is all that air movement I feel......from your subs!?!?!?!?" The skadoosh scene on Kung Foo Panda is now a personal favorite, the air you feel as the movie depicts that orange breeze flowing up the hillside matches perfectly!
A guy who came over for a demo brought his rat shack digital SPL meter, he showed me 125dB from the listening position with my pair of Captivators on his SPL meter. I don't own a meter myself, but I'll confirm they easily get louder than is really reasonable for a home theatre environment -- 125dB at listening position with a single EP4000 amp powering both subs in stereo 2ohm mode. :P So far I've knocked loose a sheet of drywall, cracked nearly all the grout lines in my upstairs bathroom floor, and several other little feats of strength (or lunacy) that never happened with any of my subs including knocking a DJ light off the wall, and unstacking cans in my kitchen pantry.
