I was using Data-bass as well. Well, the XV-15 uses the same 15. Dual sealed 15's would have less output at and near tune than a ported 15(same driver of course). A port adds close to 10 dBs at and near the tune, sometimes more. Dual sealed drivers equal 6 dBs more only if power was doubled. The XV-15 is tuned to 18hz so those 16-25hz numbers will be more than what a XS-30 will do. Below that is where the XS-30 will begin to get louder. BTW, this is all just guessing, so I would subtract 4 dBs from the XV-15 numbers to come close to a XS-30 but only at 16-25hz, maybe just 16 and 20hz. Above 25hz it will actually louder than a sub2 but we have enough midbass monster subs, don't we? The LMS5400 is a great performer with the best 10hz performance and the sub2 is very close to it. So for the low end it is an awesome performer but costs too much, way too much. That is all. When I say clobbered I am saying it would be about 8 dBs down at 16 and 20hz based on what happens to sealed and ported normally(XV-15 is 4 dBs down with a port). If I port my subs I would gain huge output at and near the tune but of course creates a huge peak in my sealed room. That is all, the XS-30 is what, $1000? You can buy 9 of them and game over. I was just saying for a single small sub it is an excellent performer. Now the sub1 would be what, 3-4 dBs less than the sub2.
