    *** Note to readers... lets try this again. Please don't hijack my thread this time. ***


    Will everyone please stop spewing this garbage? Please?

    "Brand X just hit hard..."

    "...my friend has a Brand Y that hits twice as hard as my two crappy Brand Z 12"..."

    Baloney!!

    No conversation about subs is valid unless you also include the enclosure it was mounted in.

    Please include the following when presenting opinions about the performance of a subwoofer system:

    1. size of the enclosure in cubic feet.
    2. type of enclosure (sealed, ported, band-pass, free-air, etc)
    3. tuning frequency if not sealed or free-air
    4. also, if commenting about how loud the bass is please include what amplifier is powering the sub(s) (do not just say it is a 1,000,000 watt ILS* amp from Rockwood or Kenford... first give brand and model number)

    The reason for all this additional information is it has a direct impact on its performance and how a listener may perceive its performance. The same speaker in different enclosures can and will perform very differently. Without this additional information to provide a frame of reference, your opinion is meaningless to the rest of us.

    * ILS - "If Lightning Strikes" and provides 1.21 gigawatts of power, the amp will put out 1,000,000 watts of peak power.

    Thanks in advance for not hijacking this thread.

        I concur... this needs to become a sticky.
