It pulls it's own weight. It obviously can't keep up with the big horns when they are played to extremes, but I don't do that very often anyway as I want to keep my hearing!
HSU and SVS will definitely support the volume duties.
I am not slamming them, but I have two Image Dynamics ID10v3's in my car for a reason instead of those with higher SPL's.
No sub yet in my apartment...my Quartets cause enough problems. My brother is running the BP6/8's and 10" or 12" sub by Def Tech off a Denon 3802 and stuff shakes my room as I reach to turn it down then back up constantly
Can't wait until I can find a decent priced home in Palm Beach County lol.
