This guy sims well in multiples. Four of them in about 3.25cuft with 400w each model within a 1dB of my proposed dual RLp18 (4cuft and 2,200w per driver) system. Imho, that's pretty awesome! These would be great for someone who doesn't want to use a lot of super expensive amps and has room for the total system size which really isn't that
large anyway. A single ep4k could make four of these keep up with one of my dual-opposed high power monsters.
At a glance, yeah, these seem kind of underwhelming but.... I like em.
Just don't look at them in singles. Multiples is the key with these guys. Are there more affordable choices? Of course. Total displacement isn't everything about a subwoofer system though, imo. It's just a really important part.
EDIT: Here. I made a comparison of four of these new guys from Dayton and compared the four of them to a single LMS-Ultra as the price for four is roughly as much as a single LMS-U. Now...obviously the LMS-U is the superior driver and blah blah blah. I would not say that these are better drivers than it. However, if one can fit the space and just wants to use a single and simple ep4k... the choice looks obvious to me. Edited by Scott Simonian - 9/20/12 at 11:58am
