The FV15HP uses direct-servo technology, I think you would have a hard time finding anyone to say anything bad about how it sounds! It's about as far away from a "loud mess" as possible.
Again I'm not putting down the 18.0, I think Nathan makes really nice subs and I'm sure they sound great. But let's be honest here if Mr.Hatcher really is considering dual FV15HP's verse a single 18.0 its not even a fair fight. That would be light Floyd Mayweather going up against Mike Tyson in his prime. At 20hz a single 18.0 has 103.4db output, dual FV15HP's would have 112db! And let's not even get started on the advantages of duals verse a single sub.
With Mr.Hatcher having a budget of only 6 grand his money is much better spent on two FV15HP's rather then a single 18.0.
Sorry I'm really not trying to come off like I don't like Funk subs, I'm just being realistic about comparing a 18.0 to dual FV15HP's that Mr.Hatcher has been considering.Edited by jbrown15 - 7/11/13 at 8:55pm
