The small bit that I heard sounded quite good with the signature horn punch.
I sold the passive captivators but the OS LFU is still for sale so let me know if you are interested.
To add to the conversation, one would need to consider exactly "Why" they prefer sound they hear from a horn. I remember my old f-20's and man, they kicked some serious tail in their passband with an incredibly clean sound to them. What could all contribute to what you are "Hearing" along with your in-room response? Well a couple things to consider:
~Native response of the. Take a look at data-bass and compare the cap4k directly one to one against the LFU. their native in room response is pretty different, and they maximum sustained output is even much more so.
~Distortion profiles due to design differences will be different
~tuning freq/horn corner at over 10hz differential points will affect tonal difference.
I feel like these all play a major part in our perception of bass, even if the measured response was near identical, and all other things being equal. It is hard to put these differences into a qualitative wrapper.

If anybody knows someone close to Omaha that wants a 59.5 x 44 x 16 inches, 285 lbs commercial sub that puts out bass down to 12.5 hz, let me know. Not interested in trying to ship this thing. I need to do some more price research but I'm thinking $1,000 even.
He didn't run down and grab that cap4000 just for you did he?
