Many speaker manufactures will tell you to buy a more expensive model.
I don't want to quote Jeff, but he did say something about the distortion differences between the Definimax and Delta Pro weren't really worth mentioning. I'm pretty sure he tested it on both woofers and the Definimax was indeed lower. But can it be heard even at high home audio levels by the average person?
Good woofer models/brands sound different because they're designed different, not necessarily because one has 5% less distortion at high volumes. I'd much rather be listening more for the distinct sound characteristics of 2 well designed woofers versus trying to hear where one starts to have less distortion. And that's what Jeff was talking about when he said he liked the sound of one over the other.
Having said all of that, I still fully understand why people will want a woofer with slightly better specs. The user just has to decide if they can hear the the difference.Edited by Erich H - 10/15/13 at 9:00pm
