Was the crinkled one a 5400 or an Ultra?
I already had a pair of the Mael-X 18's and got lucky on a Mael-X 21. The LMS is a superior woofer, no doubt. The Mael's are no longer available, that's a shame. I here there may be new 18" subs coming around the corner but that is just here say. I hope a lot of subs come back to the US as the Mael-X is no longer because of the bad batch from a China build house. TC also had a problem so that is why they were out of the LMS Ultra for awhile but the current batch is from a new build house with better QC.So, you went with the Mals? Are they still available?
It can be aggravating but it will turn out for the best. A friend of mine asked me yesterday what it was like, I said imagine all the things you have to do for you own house and multiply it by how many tenants you have.don't get me started on that! I tried to get my rent today-needless to say....
