Av Talk has already measured it. You might want to check their forum for the results.

Re: Which subwoofers would you like to see tested?

Maybe a bit too late, but I would like to see my own tested: Revel B15a, just to check out how it would fare against the lateste offerings. It's a sealed box, with 3 band PEQ, with a very good crossover, making it a easy integration.

Plus, it packs a hefty punch from 20 Hz. A nice feature I also use, is the low freq boost that may be selected via 12v trigger, which in combination with my TAG AV32rDP processor, makes it possible, in an automatic way, to have a bigger punch for DVD/TV viewing, and a flatter response for CD/radio/vinyl listening.

I'd really like to see the Outlaw LFM-1 sub tested--rather than being dismissed as a repackaged Hsu VTF or STF--just to see what it's capable of in it's own right.

Although it looks like this idea for testing has lost interest?

I will contact the Outlaw and see what they think about it.

Not necessarily a complete subwoofer, but one driver I think would be cool to see tested is the JBL W15GTi, which is a "car audio" driver using the Hyperdynamics dual-coil/dual-gap motor with each coil running in the opposite direction for reduced inductance. I'm getting some insane-looking models using this driver in what I consider a tiny enclosure (~100L net) with dual PR's, and while it doesn't have the throw of, say, a Tumult, its design seems to have the most thought-out heat management scheme I've seen so power compression may be less of an issue.

I don't know about availability in Finland, but maybe you could find a local car-fi nut with one who wants to know what it can do.
We have the JBL W15GTi MKII available here. Let me see if I'm able to get one. And coincidentally I have two 18" TC-Sounds PRs on the way as we speak. What kind of tuning you were thinking about? 100 liters looks awfully small...

WOW!!! I would really like to see the W15 GTI tested. It is easily scaring neighbours in my car....Inside you get a quite easy 130 db. GP would be another issue though

Do you have any large drains, mineshafts, ventilation shafts or deep wells in your test area?

You could put an IB "outie" manifold over a deep well and prove once and for all that IB's rule absolutely!

You could lift a ventilation cowl off a flat roof and put the manifold over that?

Don't fall off the roof trying to measure 2 meters away for the microphone placement!

I know. I know!

I just picked an ACI Maestro. It blows away the Velodyne ULD-15 I had before. I'd like to see how it stacks up to the competition.
