I cannot make the comparison, as I have never heard those. I do have the 12D, and absolutely love it. Huge bass! I don't know if you will get anybody that can give you a real life comparison of hearing both, as the only way you will hear a 12D is to buy one if you don't live in Oregon. Plus, they are very new.
However, keep in mind, they do have a 30 day in home trial, and it's free shipping both ways. Meaning, if you don't like it, they pay for the shipping to return it. No risk! After having it for an hour (I also ordered four 5B and a 5C) I broke down all the boxes. I knew right then I was not returning anything!
The small size really appeals to the WAF.
You are comparing it to subs with a great reputation. I am sure whatever you pick, you will be happy with it. Good Luck.
