    It has two 15" PR's on the side. Would 3.5 after displacement still be too small even with two PR's tuned low?

    I'm sorry, I was thinking you meant only one PR. Yes, 3.5 cubes is still on the small side but tuning low will keep it musical.

    Ideal situation is a large enclosure with low pwer, just a few hundred watts. This keeps you well in control of the moving mass but not anywhere near thermal compression. But if you have to go on the small side you can bump the power up to 800-1000w. You'd need it for the amount of applied EQ in the smaller enclosure. It sounds pretty good both ways.

    Well, I know I don't need to explain the capabilities of the driver to you. You know what the 8" can do, lol.

    Beautiful low distortion high(ish) output 15". Digs deeper than most of you have ever heard and gives a velvety smooth seamless transition to your front stage.

    Someone out there has to be interested in sound quality!

    Re: TC Sounds 15" TC-1000

    Hmm.. I suppose I can do 245. Would you suggest a sealed or ported box for HT use? I'm planning on using this to do sub bass, and a pair of TC7's for bass in a medium sized room.
