    Without mentioning brand names, I've listened to two subs both the same size and power (powered amp). Brand X was deeper and cleaner than brand Y. Why is that....given they were both the same size and power? Simple answer please.

    There is no simple answer without knowing what subs you're talking about. Could be porting, driver, amp power (both may claim the same, but it's not unusual for sub manufacturers to, um, exaggerate) bracing, location in the room... The list goes on.

    Did you listen in the same room? The room has a huge impact at sub frequencies.

    The answer is, that's why there is more than one sub model and manufacturer.
