You remind me of the guy that got kicked out of the Energy thread talking about POWER and SONIC NIRVANA and another dude commsysman. Its apparent that you still have a lot to learn and there are people here that are trying to help you, but you insist on spewing bad information. Why? I have a lot more to say, but I'll refrain. Maybe another forum would better suit you.
I love those two guys!
As for the OP, I've never heard the XV15 but I've had one of Tom's older sub designs and it was phenomenal. I'm sure the XV15 will deliver (especially at that price I think it's a steal) . The only better bang for your buck would be flat packs+ a 15 inch driver (Daytons or if you have the budget an LMS-R). The other sub I'd recommend too, while pricer than the XV15, would be the Rythmik F15 or E15. Heard them in a dual set up and thought they were one of the best sounding subs I've heard (Disclaimer: Audio is SUBJECTIVE). (I've heard Outlaw LFM-1 EXs, all the HSU models except the STFs, LMS5400 Ultras, SVS 16-46ci's, SVS PB12nsd, few of the 15inch velodynes, and some ..martin logan subs)Edited by pokekevin - 2/15/13 at 10:02pm
