Why is the 15" Titanic kit from Parts Express not getting attention?

    I just spent a few minuites searching the forum and found almost nothing about it.

    Does anyone use it?

    Does it suck for $700?

    For $700, does a SVS blow it out of the water?

    Anything I should know?

    Thanks! I'm 'shopping' right now.

    From what I hear it's a very good sub, very musical. But I think an SVS may go deeper.

    Where are test measurement results for it?

    I cannot believe PE is not promoting this thing more. Looks very cool.

    I like BIG woofers.

    I dream is a SVS box with DUAL 15" woofers and a 1500+ watt amp [​IMG][​IMG]

    Its not a bad deal as a kit. But I think in general there are some more exciting drivers right now than the Titanic Mk3. Specifically, the Ascendant Audio Atlas 15 has almost as much displacement, costs less, requires less amp power to reach max excursion, has some interesting VC flexibility and uses XBL2 technology. Also, the AE (formerly Stryke) AV15 should be available again shortly with more displacement than the Titanic.

    Its kinda hard to compare to the SVS. One is a sealed sub kit. The other is a turn-key ported sub. The Titanic 15 woofer can probably displace more air than most, if not all, of the SVS woofers. But generally I've found in simulation that a sealed sub's woofer needs to displace about 2-3X as much air as a ported sub in order to compete at the lowest frequencies (near the ported sub's tuning point). So its possible that even the SVS PCi models could equal or even better the Titanic's low frequency output.

    I'm sure they're both great performance-wise. I would probably just decide on which approach I liked better.

    I have never been a fan of sealed speakers - seems like you have to use a LOT more power and a LOT more stress to get the amount of bass I crave [​IMG]

    So for deep bass, a $700 SVS would probably take the cake?

    Thanks for the replys!
