    Re: Some of the best SQ subs ever made..?

    Let's put all the audiophile wank words aside and think of it in measurable terms. Smoother, rounder, and fuller are completely open to interpretation. Sound quality on a subwoofer refers to a wide bandwidth in which distortion is kept at a minimum. We also want to hear the notes have a natural attack and decay. This requires hearing live music so you have your own memories of what instruments actually sound like. For example, a kick drum heard in person unamplified sounds nothing like what you hear on 99% of commercially released music.

    Old school w6's and Focal Polyglass 13's. Loved them both... Heard the new w6's are good as well. No first hand experience with em' however.

    Honeslty, I was just interested about the topic..

    Honestly, the only thing I would really do is trade my OA15 abd cash for a SQL 15 that I can wire down to 1 ohm on my Aspm, but honestly, I'm very content aith my OA15....
