If displacement is equal for both, the one with the flatter BL curve will generally have lower distortion.

Oddly enough, distortion makes a loudspeaker sound "louder", so often the grungier sub will sound like it 'hits' harder. (IE, a low displacement, high distortion sub will often sound louder than a high displacement low distortion sub.)

Isn't psychoacoustics fun?

In principle it would be quite simple to waste the surplus labour of the world by building temples and pyramids, by digging holes and filling them up again, or even by producing vast quantities of goods and then setting fire to them. (Orwell)

Just curious, I ran a Alumapro Alchemy 10 many years ago and loved it, Very tight base,blended very well and could get load when wanted.
Took a few years off the whole Car audio seen and when I came back, While tracking down the gear for a new setup the IDQ 10W3 were recommended, So I went with them (ran two in a 2 Ohm load, sealed box, aprox .75 per spk) pushed with a Zapco Comp 300.
Sounded Ok, But was think9ng about possibly going with a Alumapro Alchemy MX 12, Was wondering why the Alumapro wasn't mentioned or has the other SQ type subs just surpassed them that much.

I have heard the illusion, briefly. It sounded very good. The ultra low end extension was unbelievable. (I heard 2 12's in a sealed enclosure)

Sorry, I kind of figured this thread was so old and realized in impossibility of the question. But sure....an update.....I currently have 2 Dynaudio Esotar2 1200's IB in my Acura TL. I am constantly smiling with how these sound. They are as quick (or quicker) than any size subs I have ever owned (including 4 - 8" round solobarics back in the day). They hit LOW....really LOW with ease. They have really good pop and the bass better than I have ever heard: smooth, musical and powerful. I LOVE them.

I've read these same qualities about the Ultimos. Have you heard the Ultimos and if so how do they compare?

Yes, I have heard an Ultimo and Ultimo SC, both in a proper sized sealed enclosure. One was in an accord (so similar vehicle) and one was in a hatchback. I would choose the Esotar2 all day any day over the Ultimo. I like the Ultimo (and the ARC Black for that matter), but the Esotar2 is just on a different level.....very refined and accurate.

Stunning. But I personally like the IB better, personally. 2 of them IB sounds like perfect bass to me.
