The gap has narrowed recently with the Maelstrom going on sale for $225 ea, so my question to you guys is this. Would it be worth the extra $150 for 2- Maelstroms verses 2- Tempest, I’ve never really considered a Maelstrom over a Tempest at the regular price, but now that I'm ready to buy 2 good drivers and the Maelstrom is conveniently on sale I’m having a hard time making up my mind. Here are the details I have the following available power 1 ea Adcom GFA-555 (200 X 2, or 400 X 1) 1 ea Audio Source Amp 3 (150 X 2 or 400 X 1) I also have a 9 foot section of 24” Sonotube that a friend gave me for helping him on his sub project. 60% HT 40% Music BTW Quality is of more importance than Quantity, clean seamless bass is first and foremost, however I don’t want to have to worry about the subs keeping up with the rest of the system, which is my current problem and I occasionally listen to music very loud. I wish to build 2 separate single driver sono-subs in either a EBS or Sealed alignment. There is a lot of info on this site on the Tempest but far less of the Maelstrom, probably because of the price, but if price between these two didn’t matter then what would you do considering this equipment and taste? Thanks for any opinions or personal experiences.
