    I see the manufacture states the Pe is 500W for the AV15, but I think I've seen post stating that it can take more. What is the consensus on Peak and Continuous power handling of this driver or is 500W when it melts down?

    Are you considering an alignment in which Pe would be an issue?

    I have considered MANY alignments and just curious as to what my parameters are. Your question begs me to ask, is it typically a problem trying to max out power? I have 4 AV15's, and a BFD. Looking to get a QSC PLX2402 amp (and modifying it to natively accept 0.775V). I want low frequency AND 120dB ~ 122dB at 20hz, the rumble filters I have to chose from are 12hz and 18hz. The max height for a port is 49" minus the port diameter (~7.5"). I can have 1 or 2 boxes with up about 400L gross internal volume in each then taking out volume for bracing, drivers, and port. I think I have a good feel for most of the parameter limits, now I just am looking at max power. I’m just trying to optimize the finished product maximizing output and depth with selectively chosen components (without wasting... ie designing for a 14hz tuning point and having to use the 17hz rumble filter, wasting usable low end)
