Plenty of misinformation here.
First thing to note is the CHT sub compared in that graph is the VS18.1; which is a single 18" in a vented cabinet, and not the dual 18" sealed that SeaNile is getting a pair of.
Second thing to note is the CHT sub is not even compared against the Stereo Integrity 18" that this thread is about; it's the Dayton 18" instead (which admittedly is extremely close).
Third thing (and most important as far as skewing of data) is that graph shown is of the 'basic response'; not max output. I'm not smart enough to say exactly what 'basic response' as tested by Data-Bass is, but I can tell you that a single sealed SI 18 also 'destroys' a DTS-10's basic response of 72-90 dB from 10-50 Hz as well.
I am not a CHT fanboy at all (never owned anything they make), but if that was meant to be any kind of 'comparison', the layman taking a glance at that post might think the CHT is a POS. The CHT products are pretty dang nice for the guy that doesn't want to make his own stuff but wants alot of the performance that DIY can offer.
On another note dlbeck, how were you able to get that comparison graph posted? I've tried to post a few Data-Bass comparisons and can't figure out how to link the picture. Printscreen?
