Mark and I Tested this little "unhorn" in a relatively small room in his house. It sounded great. The bass had huge dynamic range in the music we were using. It belted out the lows, i expect with some help from room gain. The little box was quite astonishing. It was clean and articulate. The sound itself showed no compromise even when pushed with over 300w, in fact, the more wattage we fed it, the cleaner it sounded. It was kind of impressive. i know the roll off is a little steep for a house, it was great in this small room, but in the car is where it really shines. We still need a bigger amp for in the car to get to the levels i'd like for music, but it did sound great on everything i played. no stress, no complaints, easy 115+dbs in the car on roughly 40w. cabin gain in a small space is like no other i guess.
