Is one better than the other? Both have the same MSRP. I heard that the smaller 4000R is the better sub. I heard the 5000 is boomy.

boomy is the result of sub/room location (not because of driver size) i believe they are both tuned the same


if it's the same price, get the bigger sub.

I moved from a 4000R to an MFW-15.


There really isn't any comparison. The "suggested" retail price of the 4000R is absolutely ridiculous compared to what you get. I paid far less than retail for mine, and never having even HEARD a real sub before - a round of test tones showed it couldn't do anything substantial in the 20hz range - 30hz was the last tone it played. In that price range you should be able to get something around 20, even a little bit below, especially if you are talking retail.


If I was shopping again (and I'm not - very happy), I'd be looking at SVS, Epik, eD and Hsu. Which is what I was looking at before I bit on the MFW.

these subs are crap compared to just about every I.D. Sub out there... I have the 5000r and it's pretty weak. I'd go w/ a 3.3 or mfw before the 5000.

I'm going to pick up the 4000R. I'm getting it for $350. I'm renting right now and my house has small rooms. I think it will do the job til I move out and get an SVS.
