Yup, except for the different: price, name, driver, cabinet, and amp, they're the same.
This thread is hilarious.
Maybe pictures will help where words failed.

Heck, if Auditor55 were trying, he'd be stating that the new NSD may not perform as well as the old Plus based off of a slightly smaller cab and very slightly less powerful amp, as well as the different driver. And who knows what that DSP limiter is doing. Of course, that means that the published material for the two subs, and corresponding measurements, would be different as well though.
Oh well, back to popcorn and observing a "scientific" debate about apples.
