Well Wes, get your butt over here on the 28th, if you want to bring you Dyn sub your welcome, there will be some major players here and plenty of people to discuss it over with....
In comparison, the JL is extremely articulate, you can easily sense the subtle nuances in the changes of freq, it provides the brutal attack when called upon and subsides instantly - (hit it and quit it...?
) it doesn't linger around.. same with the DIY - the power is there for control... obviously not all drivers will sound the same, hense the idea of my shootout to gather them together and compare. The Ported SVS subs, I had the PB12-Plus and the PB12-Plus/2's, I like the output but you couldn't really get a good grasp of SQ from them in that stupid huge room, they are much cleaner in a smaller room. Those subs had a bit more note overhang which got more and more prevalent to me after I got the F112, they would hit and kinda linger around for a bit.... I like to kid that they would "Stay for Dinner"
I needed some serious output in the room and tried to accomplish it with sealed 15's... not enough, but at least it started me into getting a handle on DIY builds. So far the 18's are great, lots of clean output, much more articulate then the SVS's, It'll be good to get my 3rd one finished, it will also be nice to put them up against the LMS-5400 to see how it compares.
