    Has anyone had the chance to listen to both, and if you have, please comment, because I´m going to go with either one without any chance to listen to them.

    I´ve read a lot here about the AV12, and it seems to be a great driver, planning to have it in a sealed box 45-50 liters and powering it with Rythmicaudio´s 350w plate-amp.
    (Can you compare this to any comercial sub?)

    The XLS12 would be in a 40 liter box with one PR, powered with same amp as above.

    Which would give the most bang for the buck, I´m in Sweden so importing the AV12 will be almost the same price as buying the XLS12+PR locally.

    I´m using my sub mostly for movies.

    Patiently awaiting you´re wise comments, Mikael [​IMG]

    You'll have a tough time finding someone who's actually heard them both. I'd go with the sealed AV12 myself. I've got one in just over 1 ft^3 with an even smaller amp and it's great.

    Yea, that XLS doesn't look like it'll cut the mustard for HT duty, even with a PR.

    Hi David,

    I'm using an Adire AVA250 amp, the driver is in just over 1 ft^3 fairly well stuffed. I'm using a Linkwitz transform circuit to boost the low end so it's flat to below 20hz in my room but, even without, it goes extremely deep and sounds great doing it.
