I have compared the JTR Cap 4000ULF and the Rythmik FV25HP extensively, so I know what you were talking about.

It's really hard to grasp without experiencing it in person.

This is why I have urged people to have at least a ported JTR pointing at the front of the MLP.

These reviews are great and are invaluable to new comers/members that are shopping for subs and are not able to audition different subs at home due to return shipping costs. I know measurement graphs are coming with Chucks0, @serith do you think you can provide compression graphs on your 4000 and the FV25's? Reviews and subjective opinions are great but it's greater when there are graphs and measurement to paint the pictures. Thanks.

Aren't the output compressions for JTR Cap 4000ULF and FV25HP already on Data-Bass?

Not everyone is comfortable doing CS, you know...

^^ Yeah, but it's still nice to see the in same room CS of the said subs all in one place. Ricci has in room measurements for some subs he tested which I find also beneficial to correlate to outdoor measurements.

Thanks that was a good read. To me it is awesome that you said the PB16 has great TR, and yet the FV18 has even more. Thats exciting!
