The Sunfire we have is tiny.

We have also requested several smaller subs from manufacturers.

We are also just getting started, so there will be a lot more to come.

Like the old rule says, there's no replacement for displacement. Even though the SubM has a lot more power I am thinking quad XS30's will outperform dual SubM's. The SubM's advantage is Mark Seaton who I really have a lot of respect for.
I've heard SubMersives in 3 different rooms. Best sub I've experienced thus far.

I agree, quad XS30's are a force to be reckoned with. Can't wait to see some numbers. It takes serious power and excursion capabilities for a sealed sub to hit single digit with meaningful SPL. SubMersive stepped from 1000 watts to 2400, and I have heard is going to 4000 watts.

Re: Subwoofer Testing Coming Soon and Suggestions/Recommendations Thread

Kind of slow around here during the holidays as there was plenty of family and some drama going on as well. But you will all be happy to know that I am about to test another round of subs that I have in my possession including:

Atlantic Technology 642e SB THX Select
Velodyne Optimum 12"
SunFire Atmos
Rythmik F15 (Round 2)
and the Genelec HTS4B!

Stay Tuned!!!

Regards,
Dale Rasco

I reviewed an Atlantic Technology 444SB not too long ago, and found it to be a rather impressive little sub. I'm curious to see how the 642 fares. The Genelec I'd like to get my hand on actually; that's one of those subs you often hear about, but rarely get a chance to actually see. Think unicorn.

If you take yourself too seriously, expect me to do the exact opposite

Coolio, A new set of sub tests to kick of 2013!

I had a Genelec HTS4B a long time ago, it's a good sub so I will be interesting in hearing how it tests. It's actually a really nice selection of subs, sounds like your gonna have some fun Dale.
