Yes, I would asssert based on my experience with the 1X12 only Monoprice and some of the cheaper Hsus can compete at this price for a 12” adequately powered sub, and balanced connections, form factor and finish give XTZ some real competitive advantages. NB I LOVE my Arendal 2’s, which replaced my M&K , But let’s acknowledge its 2x the price.
Look, if your HT budget has you into Macintosh land for electronics, you should be playing with Veodyne, REL etc.
If its ANthem range, you shoudl be looking at flagships in many established US internet firms (PSA, Hsu, JTR, Rhytmik, AND most definitely, Arendal)
But if you are using hi value non flagship Denon, Yamaha, marantz, onkyo, owner, I cant see why you wouldn’t consider the 1x12 esp in multiples.
