12 hd15s sound good but we didnt push them. they had alot more power in them but we didnt want to blow any more drivers so things were kept to a moderately loud level

Produce a killer sound. Take no prisoners.

First of all, thank you adam for hosting the event and thanks to everyone that turned up.
The least you can say is that we didn't get as many boxes as expected (and confirmed?), we
tested double 18" reflex, 15" Ported horns, P.audio loaded X1, Bandpass Bertha, PD1850 and
VOid V1000 loaded X1, HD215, double 15" kick bins and a box I forgot the name of.

So very far from the awesome list of cabs we expected, a cancelation notice by pm or email would have
been nice.... Anyway, we had a great time and took time to listen to all boxes.

Chris was in charge of the plots, they will be posted soon.

In the meantime here are some pics:

The ported horns were amazing, identical to HD15 but they dropped lower.
We got the usual results: horns are more efficient than reflexes, doubling of the horn
result in an increase of 3db etc (you will see that on the plots).
I loved the void/pd loaded X1 (as usual) very powerful compared to the p.audio loaded X1.
Bandpass bertha wasn't loud (needed more power) but dropped very low.
More details with the plots soon.

I have to say, despite the void / 1850 loaded X1s being a little worse for ware they did kick the sh*t out of mine... time for a driver upgrade me thinks!

Badpass bertha... I thought she produced an amazing amount of sound for the size of box (even if we had to pile more into her), and also the depth for the size of box was amazing... just think what could be done with a box the size of a full scoop!Edited by: Adambomb

Didn't test the 215's very thoroughly but the Martin H350 was a pleasant surprise, sounded much better than I expected given it's age.
