I can’t seem to find a +- anywhere. Might I ask what is the attraction some would have regarding a sub like this at the price it seems to warrant? Is it just the size alone? I’ll be interested to see the numbers.
Who doesn't love the air a 15 & 18" woofer moves? My father is running an 18" Velodyne DD and my Brother's running a 15 velodyne SPL. Those things tear my face off, especially the DD.
While the 12" - 15" & 18" will perform the 10's on a SPL metric, i've always been partial to the sound of 10"...which the larger woofers cannot reproduce, no matter how high end you go.
I'm interested in the DT SC8000 because it's running a front firing 11" - with 2 12" passive radiators...for me, this is a VERY interesting forumla and this configuration has the potential to create a very unique sound...especially being this is DT's #2 sub on their foodchain.
If this sub were an MMA fighter, hypothetically
i compare it to a welterweight fighter than can possibly
perform like a Light Heavyweight.

1125.00 for 97db ultra low bass and 108db low bass is not what I would call a bargain.
These numbers are the main reason i'm looking for some first-hand reviews of this subwoofer.
While numbers may be black and white there is a lot of grey area these measurements do not account for.
I want a sealed enclosure. Sealed enclosured for me produce the best sounding bass. Many woofers using ported enclosures will smoke this sub's SPL numbers, but the numbers don't mean it's a better sounding setup.
