No one can really say what will and will not work for you. Expectations vary.
I understand the "YMMV" factor but was trying to get something from these forums before I plop $1200+ into a web purchase. I sure as hell don't want to have to deal with returning it. Let me provide a few more details...
My Velo can't handle the deep bass I'm looking for. At best, it goes down to the low 20's. It was a mass market sub and has outlived its usefulness. I'm looking for HT bass that I can feel that's tight. WAF is based on price only. Size is not an issue. I guess I'm not looking for miracles here, I'm just looking for a decent upgrade to the Velo. I *think* a single Empire will fill the bill but if I have to beg a little, I *might* be able to swing a pair.
I guess what I need to know is how does the Empire compare to some of the higher end B&M subs that are available, most of which are superior to my velo.
