Someone in another thread suggested the track called "Night Bass" by Bass Mekanik
as a way to showcase the capabilities of your sub. I played it through both my living room HT setup that uses the V1220 as well as through my basement audio setup that uses the PA-120. I have a new-found respect for the V1220, I must say. There are parts in this track where frequencies dip to 15 Hz supposedly, and although this is obviously below human hearing threshold, the V1220 handled it cleanly (no port noise). On the other hand, the port noise on the PA-120 was significant. Granted, the two subs were fed by two different receivers, so it's not exactly apples-to-apples comparison. Anyway, an interesting track to play.
