    Is the Tumult sealed?

    Does the tumult driver itself leak air in a sealed box? I noticed that my tumult enclosures do not seem as sealed as other sealed setups I have done in the past. . .By this, I mean I can push the driver cone in by hand about an inch, and all of the air I have displaced is leaving the box...

    received (2) Tumults and a XXX 15 today!!!

    I have not inspected the Tumults yet, but when I removed the XXX from the box to check out the new dustcap, the frame was cracked in 2 places!!!!! I guess I can join the club of UPS carelessness!!! I think this happened to Brian B too. Must be something UPS has against Brian's. . . .

    (2) Tumults and a PLX 3402

    After hearing how the Tumults are so distortion free all the way up to the point of damaging them, my question is: If I am going to use a PLX 3402 on a pair of Tumults (1100 watts to each one), will the clip limiters built in the amp protect me from hurting the drivers? They are going to be...
