That said, I think this sub is excellent for the price. I first tried it in our living room. I was a bit underwhelmed. Tried playing with the settings, but I think the bottleneck was our old Sony receiver, which has very limited allowance for settings, specifically crossover points. Also, the room is very open and I didn't play around much with placement (yet).
So moved it to our guest room where we currently have a nice yammy receiver and a set of energy classics. Even the energy sub sounds decent there. Anyway, the PA sounds much much better there! It hits hard with no distortion where my other subs would've given up. It's a hair boomy right now but I think that's from the corner loading. I'm going to play with it some more and see what happens. Right now I'm very happy with it and I suspect happier after more tweaking.
Hope this helps. Sorry no charts or measurements, although I might play with the new dB meter on my droid x.
