Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I downsized from an 18 inch sub to a 15, but after using this sub at a couple of events not only was load in and out easier because the weight was reduced by 25 lbs and the size was much easier to handle. The biggest surprise was sound wise I feel it improved overall. A tighter sound and using it with my dxr-10s gives a great overall sound experience. Mfg support has not been used so no rating for that category.
