So it can reach it's limits with no vent compression. The V1811 is much stronger above 30hz, but it's not any stronger down low then the other premium 15" subs. Not a bad thing, it's still a great sub with a ton of mid bass slam. That is where I noticed it's advantage over my 15's.
Remember the days when as long as you had 20hz and above covered you were golden. I remember buying subs from the local AV store like Sound and Vision and Tweeter and thinking they were monsters and I was completely happy then I had to join AVS and then the sickness got worse and then before you know it you have 6 18inch drivers and you still want moar
. I really think in the " real world" a pair of V1810's would blow the average person away and they wouldn't even think about another sub for the next 20 years. I bet your non AVS friends walk into your family room and see your 3 subs and they think you are completely nuts
