OK boys and girls I got them broke in and decided to test one of them out before it goes in the BMW. I am going to compare it with the Morel Ultimo 12 which currently resides in my xB. I have a box built already for this comparison. The box has an internal volume of 1.7ft^3. The amp that will power the 2 subs is a Tru S500. I did not change any of the setting that I had on the amp from sub to sub to keep all things equal.
Let me first state that I absolutly love my Ultimo. It had quickly become my favorite sub that I have owned and I have owned a lot. Like most of you here constantly changing things to find that perfect combination. The Sub prior to the Ultimo was the Millie just for reference sake.
I chose a few disc to conduct the review. Micheal Jacksons Thiller, 3 Disc from Steve Head, and to see if this thing would just flat out pound Busta Rhymes Genesis cd.
The Morel was first since it was already in the car. like I said I love this sub so I went in a bit bias to it. It has great control. It seems to shine in the 50-80hz area. I did not play it higher than that. It has some peakiness in the 50 below range. It is fast, accurate, at low to moderate volumes. The out put is decent at those levels as well not great but very very good. At high volumes it got a little loose not much but enough that i would notice. This sub works great on all types of music.
Now with the love for my Ultimo being so high I was a bit skeptical about how this Dyn was gonna do. Lets face it the MSRP on this sub is very very high imo. With that being said I was ready for a let down because in life that is always how it happens. Lets say that the Ultimo is a prize fighter, maybe Mike Tyson in his prime. Then the Dyn is Muhammad Ali. Stirs up a bunch of hype before the fight and then proves it in the ring.
I think I had an orgasim right there in the car. This sub performs so flawlessly and with out effort it is scary. The bass responce is spot on and linear. Like the Morel it is nothing short of perfect in the 50-80hz range but 50 and down it is in a league of its own. There were no peaks in the response in those freq. At least not to my ears. The output is greater than the Morel's. The tale of the tape was when I put the Busta in. The Morel shook stuff in the house a few pics on the wall and what not. The Dyn knocked them off the wall. I kept them at the same volume to keep things honest.
I am going to try to get access to a RCA and term lab to verifiy what my ears was hearing and my butt was feeling.
IMHO the Dyn is a sub to be recon with. It out performed my Ultimo and spanked the shit out of my Millie. I would be interested to see how it compares to the Peerless and Seas since I know that conversation will come up. If someone wants to send me one I would be glad to do the comparison. But for the moment, the sub totally surpassed my expectations. Ok thats all for now gotta go listen for a few more hours.
