    I have tried them on low level. The Boss just killed my QSC and I can hear that this is better than JBL SRX818sp. Taking cover ��. I know because we get sponsored by JBL on some of our festivals. Hehe!

    Damn bro, I'm happy for you. Can you get us a close up of the 4 knobs on the back of the subs. I got bassboss to do a side by side with the jbl srx828sp. They ordered one, and said the testing should be completed next week. They seem to have killer customer service, and are very accomo******. Keep us posted. How many kw-181's do you have?

    I'll snap some pictures later this afternoon. Customer service is top notch, Lian is pretty good in handling all of the non technical issues. Then David and the rest of the tech are there to support you on any problems with the unit. I do have a pair of QSC KW181 at hand. It will take atleast 3 or 4 just to go against the boss. Unfortunately there no way I can have this beast blasting, may be a shootout around LA area if anyone is interested.

    So what if BB averages 5dB SPL louder from 30Hz - 50Hz but 2dB lower from 50Hz - 90Hz than the SRX828? What would be your move?

    That's easy, anything less than a 3db difference is inconsequential so the BB would still be the better of the two if that scenario was to be the actual differences.

    Would most likely pickup the bassboss. I think i read somewhere that it takes 2-3 kw181's to keep up with the ssp118.

    Man just got some bad news today about these working out for me. No Hi-pass output. They only pass thru full signal. As you guys know my 745's have no on-board crossover, so I would need to bring my mini-drive, or omnidrive. That's exactly what I'm trying to get away from, additional equipment.

    Based on the charts.. a pair of KW181 beats a single SSP118 from around 55Hz up. Below that, the SSP118 beats the pair of KW181's.. more and more as you go lower.
    So basically, if you have got tops that need to be crossed at 100Hz, the 118 isn't really the right sub.. it is clearly designed to go with larger 15 inch and dual 15 tops that cross lower. If you have got 12 inch tops you are better off with the pair of KW181 (at around the same price as the single 118).. and no you won't go as low but them's the breaks.

    Looks like a real monster! Glad you finally got them. I wish that the SRX had a PowerCon.
