@electrodynamic, would the SQL-15 or SQL-12 work well in an IB setup?
Yes the SQL drivers will work very well in IB. With their Qts around a critically damped alignment in IB, their high Xmax, low Fs, and fairly lightweight design they will work very well in IB.

I've got an upcoming IB install and have been wavering on whether to install a pair of SBP15's or a single IDMAX15, and I had pretty much decided to go with the single IDMAX15. But now with the SQL 15's in the picture I'm probably going to install the SBP15's in a dual opposed manifold, and have the option to swap in the SQL 15's if I feel like I need more output (with double the power handling and linear throw of the SBP15's). Thanks again to SI for another fantastic offering!

So while I await the return of the SQL12 with the new coil in it I have installed an Audiofrog GB12 in its place. Gotta say, nice freakin sub. Its able to play well a bit higher than the SQL but at about 70hz and down they are very similar. Little more kick with the AF around 50hz, bit more deep bass with the SQL. I cant send all the amps power to the AF like the SQL (turned sub level down 6 db and bass knob is set at half level now as well) as it really isnt rated for 1000 watts.
I look forward to hearing a production SQL so I can see how much efficiency change there is and see how or if the SQ changes. I really dig the SQL. I like how it can really dig into those deep notes and just how hard it can stroke.

In my random dealings with the big brother RM-12 compared to the GB12 and also to a couple of different GB 10 boxes, i found in every case the RM-12 sounded better to me.

Always wanted to play with one of those. Planning on a pair of HST11s in a dual opposed box for my home theater.

From what Nick told me about the one he built, I think he said he only had about 1/4” between the motors as they sit mounted in the box. Having only heard a couple hst18s in our buddy’s HT right behind the front row (which also act as front row massagers/spine realigners), I can only imagine how hard that motor pushes those 11” cones!

I built a ~8cuft dual opposed si ht18 sub with granite inlayed in the top that’s been fantastic.
