Not to diss Rythmik and they are wonderful subs....the funk is still in a different class. We're not just talking about sound here or spl output since its probably hard to compare since sound is always subjective. But the amp and driver are all handbuilt by Nathan to highest quality parts you can get. Nothing is from China. So Funk Audio will have higher quality parts throughout the whole build.
The main reason it cost more are these things.....custom, custom, custom! If you want a custom box shape/size, custom finish, custom size driver, custom amp, etc....of course it cost more but the subs will be built based on your exact preference rather than just being stuck with one size box by the company.
So just that alone makes funk in a different class.....even if the sound were exactly the same. Best way I can describe a funk sub sound would be similar output to jtr sealed models but with lower distortion.
Just remember when you're in the high end category its going to be hard to be not impressed with any of these subs from top ID manufactures. Just the consumer needs to decide what his priorities are. And it doesn't matter which route you go as long as it checks all your boxes and are happy at the end.
Also you mentioned your subs are clean and tight and not the need to change them.....just stick with it and don't demo other subs or that could change in the future! LOL Even if you have the best thing today....there is always something better tomorrow.
