It handled everything flawlessly. Hard, full and not boomy. I can't wow you with spl readings but I cpuld really give a crap about that. IMO, Eric and Lavasubs have a quality product and at an amazing price. They def. have a repeat customer now.
I can relate to your statements. In 1994 I purchased a sub that listed for $900 and I got one for $378 (including remoted controlled volume), delivered to my door. But I had never seen or heard one before I bought it.
One big difference between your purchase and mine is that I only made my purchase after reading a professional review that compared 11 powered subs in a 2,200 cubic foot room.
My sub measures 23 inches h X 14w X 18d. 12 inch driver and 2 ports.
Some of the other subs in the test group inlcluded Velodyne, HSU, M&K, Klipsch,Triad, and others.
The HSU scored number one. Generating 106.5 db from 25-50 Hz. My sub was just a hair behind, generating 105.9 db from 25-50 hz. All with distortion under 10% THD.
In all good faith, I couldn't recommend a sub that hasn't been tested with properly measured output figures and distortion measurements at various levels. Typically we want to see these figures for 95, 100, 105 db at a minimum.
Glad you are so happy with your purchase
