From what I remember modeling, it was not worth it to go from a Shiva-X to a MFW-15. In my small room I have four sealed subs. One is a Shiva-X, two of them are 12" TC Sounds sample drivers (slightly better than LMS-R's) and one 18" Mal-X. Four MFW-15's modeled out to be a down grade from what I had. Your ported Shiva is just about identical to what I had. It is a nice sub and I would not switch unless you like me want to go lower. That is why I changed over to all sealed subs.
