"There is no reason a sub that plays to 10hz can't do 50 to 80 as well."

- You're right, but it's like a normal speaker, all else equal, two drivers with separate freq range duties, optimized for those freq ranges, should do it better than an all-in-one single driver setup. I mean, a normal sub might hit 10Hz at 90 dB(random number), but be able to hit 115 dB at 50-80 Hz...wouldn't it be beneficial to be able to hit 115 dB for the entire 10-80 Hz range?
Seems to me a logical extension of the MBM concept: Use the light/fast driver for 50-80Hz, then have a heavy/robust driver to slam the 10-50Hz range. I'm talking much robust than your typical bottom-dwelling sub we talk about around here...which this unit would be, if it's hitting 10Hz as hard as is being implied.
We're just talking hypothetical here. I'm just trying to say the concept has merit. We'll have to wait and see what's announced and released...
