The U13 stood its ground, but was slightly lower is crispness to the Fathom. Can you elaborate on your observations of the differences between the MFW and the U13?
I've only had a couple of day s with the Ultra but even without measurements, using the same test tones I used before shipping the MFW last week it is obvious that the driver produces a tighter and cleaner sound. The MFW15 is no slouch down low but it does not produce the "kick in the chest" feel of the Ultra13.
I spent over a month undecided on a pair of new ultras or used/demo F113s. The F113, in my opinion, is a sexy sub because of it's size and build. It is also a bit easier to hide and ship as well (if sold down the line). I don't regret my choice. Maybe I'll pick up an F113 for the Sony 60XBR2 setup.
