    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?

    Well I'm not trying to hold them to specific numbers, specs or smaart.......

    I'm more interested on if they can equal the output of two qualities 18's like 2 vrx918sp or a properly powered srx728. I'd be happy with just a simple side-by-side A/B.

    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.

    Okay, if they were the equivalent of two of your VRX918SP's, what would that mean to you... would that have you re-thinking and possibly going the SSP18 route? I'm just curious because they seem like stellar subs, especially for the typical bass-reflex design. I can't think of a knock on them except the lack of grill foam to cover the driver (and that's just my preference).

    There are all kinds of tradeoffs in sub design and different solutions are going to be better for different people. The Bassboss with its big box and expensive driver most certainly outperforms the QSC and goes deeper.. but does it outperform a pair of the QSC.. which cost the same as a single Bass Boss, *when compared within the working range of the QSC* ??? If not.. and that is quite paossible that it does not, or even if it's a close race.. then there are.some people for whom the KW181 might still be the better choice even tho the Bass Boss is a superior box.

    And some for whom the Bass Boss would be the better choice.

    When you get into the higher end JBL and other comparisons on par with that in terms of size and price range of course there will be better boxes or worse boxes but it is doubtful you will be beating anything 2 to 1 in favor of any sub.

    Id definitely rethink my priorities...... but 125 lb Weight might still be a deterrent because i want to remain a 1 man show even if there's stairs.

    Ultimately the Bass Boss is a reflex sub with a third party driver (RCF I think in this case, tho I know he has used McCauley) and a third party amp. So yea, buy an expensive top of the line driver and an expensive amp in a properly designed solidly made box and yea it is going to rock. Ported subs are well understood technology. SO you paid the price for quality so you get that. There's no real magic here. JBL can do the same thing but they are limited to using their own drivers.. if someone has a better driver they still use their own. But they make some great stuff so it's not exactly going to be vast differences.

    JBL use their best drivers on their Vertec. Those are a lot better than their SRX line, but then you have to pay for the price. BassBoss have drop their prices since they have found a new amp plate besides Powersoft. I was informed that their new sub amp plate performs better than Powersoft on sub duty.

    Well, they certainly do look beautifully made. I'm looking forward to your reports on the sound and whatever comparisons you can make vs other boxes. I've heard some Bassmaxx folded horns but never these models.

    Did a frequency response comparison measurement QSC with blue and BB with burgandy curve, but I wont call this official. Non calibrated mic and not an ideal environment, you'll notice both sub suffered similar roll off around 70Hz and above.

    It looks like Bassboss measurements are legit on their versus graphs. I can see some part of it are similar trend showed here.
