tonvb is actually correct; subwoofers are not voiced to match speakers. They may share aesthetics, but competently engineered speakers and subwoofers will work in a mix-n-match scenario. Paul Jones is definitely a competent engineer, so there's no way he would have done otherwise.As far as voicing, are you telling me that if Barbara Streisand and Tony Bennet sing the exact same note that their voices will sound exactly the same? The same applies to voicing of subs, they all have their own character.
And your own example just made the point that while one can make intelligent statements (which I readily agree with) about a sub (or any other part of a sound system), that only applies to quantitative differences, not qualitative differences. Now lets get back to the original topic and try to help the original poster with useful information.
With regards to your "intelligent statements" and "useful information" comments... you should perhaps heed your own advice, as your combative and argumentative tone are not doing the OP - our yourself - any favors. Please make sure all your posts are aligned with the forums rules.
