    I figured this might be helpful to anyone looking to get a sub instead of DIYing. I'll probably end up throwing it on my tutorial site which i need to finish still :rofl:. This guy on AVS knows his shit, hes done crazy sonotubes and has owned tons of shit so I feel this guide is relatively accurate and at the least a good rough outline for quick referencing.

    I'm surprised to see the SVS didn't rate higher...


    I still want to hear/try a REL subwoofer...

    cuz 3 hsus would be extreme :hsugh: i prefer to lean towards bang for buck when it comes to my bass (yes DIY is of course better bang for buck but im omitting DIY for this discussion) id probably have to look at the measured output for both subs again as i cant remember how hardcore the jl gets, right now im considering the purchase of 2 vtf3hos, besides there are no jl home dealers around here

    I think if I really wanted to dump money into a new subwoofer, I would get a Meyer Sound PSW-4. It isn't home audio but it is a SUPER clean subwoofer...

    I think that Craig measured both the DD-18 and the JL F113 and found the JL to have a 3db advantage in max output @ 20hz. I could be wrong, but I don't feel like searching right now. He feels that they are neck and neck in SQ. Point is, JL has supplanted the Velodyne DD series as the gold standard in high-end production subs, and has done so at a lower MSRP.

    Did you see this blog coverage of the AVS tour of JL? http://www.audiojunkies.com/blog/199

    Pretty impressive, imo. What's also interesting is that they are going to be making full-range speakers for home audio soon.

    i cant wait to see the new ultra SVS line released, they are going to be hardcore (hopefully) if they are as good as people are making them out to be then they should be to outdo the HSUs :eek5:

    I think we are forgetting the cardinal rule of audio.


    Loudspeakers, especially subwoofers, sound different to everyone....
