I am still not convinced.

Handhold SPL meter can tell you generally close to nothing about bass cabinet this way.
SPL meter will just show you overall maximum noise spikes from cabinet regardless to freq. or bandwidth of that max. SPL zone.
I have quick sketched one example to show what may happen here:


I agree.

Many people insist scoops have to be measured for real comparison... To each their own.

Personally, to judge a cab, or group of cabs, I'll firstly look at amp/amps driving the cabs, then stand at least 15M back, and make my observations.

How some people can stand directly in front of a cab, and then say on the internet, it is the loudest cab they've ever heard, beats me..

I just made the point that in the Scoop test, the Shortman measured slightly louder than S118.

In reality, in huge venue or outside, very few scoops will match S118+1850 output and throw. averaged over 40-80hz.
