Ya know what a77cj7? I have a 4ft3 sealed box I had my TC Sounds in. I will buy a PA460 and put it in there and give you my honest opinion at some point.
Lol, if you want to waste your money go ahead. Like most pro woofers, they don’t look good in sealed boxes.
I guess BTH runs his sealed, but he also runs 16 of them with copious eq.
Now if you don’t plan to use the box elsewhere, throw a port in and you’ll have a nice mbm. Should easily keep up with a pair of your 12” mbm’s.
Thats the only reason I’m picking one up, to make use of a mbm that used to hold my 18ds.
Running low doesn’t hurt the upper frequencies. It will stress the woofer since you’re using every bit of displacement it can produce though. As happy as you are, I wouldn’t change anything. As you say, it would be very hard to find another one.
If you do feel like adding the super low stuff for cheap, check out BOSS. Its another design around ultra cheap drivers though.
