Have you ever even heard a SVS of recent vintage?
Trust me on this if you never trust me on anything else ever again, the subs in the Fours even if bi-amped along with an X2, or even DUAL Classic Twelves couldn't hold a candle to just one of SVS' cheapest, smallest $400-some dollar 10" sub.
IMO, they aren't quiet as musical as the EVO subs, but they certainly don't embarrass themselves either. And on output and extension, it's not even close.
BTW, also, the ports on the SVSs CAN be plugged, and STILL go down to 20 Hz.
