I've been a bass player for 45 years, and this is one of the finest drivers I've ever used.
I ran across some interesting information on the Talkbass forum about a speaker design known as the Greenboy fEARful 15-sub. It is a design specifically tailored to this driver, and has been built by many with very satisfactory results. Since I'm getting older, the light weight (45 lbs) and small size (20" x 24" x 16") appealed to me, so I built a fEARful cabinet and put one of these monsters in there.
Using a Fender P-Bass through a GK 1001RB amp, it has deep lows, quick response and amazing punch. Very efficient but with huge power handling and long excursion. Only disadvantage is it rolls off quick above about 1400 hz, so if you're a bass player that likes pops and snap, match it with a 6" mid or a horn. There are other fEARful designs that do that.
I hooked it up as a sub on the home theater and even though it's not in an optimal sub cabinet,...
This is an amazing speaker. I'm using it for bass guitar in a 1 15 cabinet and could not be more pleased. Do not hesitate to buy this bad boy!!!
replaced the 5th black widow 15" with this and really love the sound, it stands up to my 70's ampeg v6 great so far
