I agree. Everytime I get a good response curve with a tapped horn, the power rating is horrible. Atleast with a FLH, you don't have to worry about the sub unloading below the tuning frequency.

what are some good specs for a woofer that'll suit a tapped horn?

I have an MTX T9512 sub here, that doesn't seem to suit a tapped horn at all

I thought that sub is suppose to be great for FLH's?
