I am disappointed you had to be modest, cuz those were the two I most hoped to hear in grave detail.LMS 18
$1900 (driver, beefy amp, box, hardware, cords, EQ, etc) sealed 18", 21.5 x 21.5 x 21.5", or about 6.2 cu ft external.
I won't say too much here because it's mine. No HPF was used. I pushed it up to where it was driven very hard on the THX trailer, but was still ok and then let it rip with the 8002 bridged. It ran through everything with no further adjustment needed. It was dimpling the surround a bit on Bass I Love You (16hz). Uneventful other than that. I thought it had the best pure sound of all of the subs.

This one was mine as well so I won't post much. Similar to the LMS, I used the THX trailer and set it to where it was ok with that but being pushed very hard. No HPF, bridged 8002. On Bass I Love You, the excursion got out to the "outer limits" (16hz, 7hz) it ran through everything else easily. The most sub 25hz bass of the day up till then IMO. Sounded similar to the LMS (very good) on the music with a tad less punch and extension up top (music) but more reach and headroom down low (HT). Probably the highest output levels of the day up to that point.
At any rate, I think these GTGs is a wonderful idea, I thank you all for your information and hope you all had a great time.
After experimenting with different tunings with my LLT in-car, I retuned to 18Hz rather than 15.5Hz because of Bass I Love You, as I was told it was an 18Hz tone. Once I get my driver recone completed and run a sweep to test tuning, I'm going to once again cut the port out and redo it back to 15.5Hz! Steve Callas gave me a little guff over my Bass I Love You excursion vid, but that's OK... Steve, YES! I thoroughly enjoy it! Thank you very much. :foottap: hahahaha. At any rate, I now have to find that THX track, and re-look for Bass Mekanik: Toccata and Fugue as I always searched as "Toccata in B" and just couldn't find it...oops.
Thank you guys so much!
btw, pics link didn't work for me...
