40L should be enough for a ported TL1102, and the sub1500 calls for less volume than the TL1601 (Widget uses it sealed)

That is a very nice looking speaker.

That is very interesting. You mean his TL-1102 cabinet is sealed or the SUB1500 cabinet is sealed?

sub1500 is sealed, with eq (and tons of watts). This is what this subwoofer is made for: small cabs, eq, WATTS! And it is said to be one of the best in these conditions.

Thank you VERY much for all the information and the recommendation. I will seriously consider your recommendation.

Is Widget his actual name or his user name? I tried to find "widget" in the members list of audioheritage forum but couldn't find him. Perhaps I can contact him to learn more.

Widget on the audioheritage forum has such a system:
sub1500, TL1102, TD4003/TH4003, ET703

he says it is a killer system, and I tend to believe what he says
I could definitely see that.

Just to clarify for the SET crowd and posterity:
The TAD 1601a is a fantastic woofer. Or subwoofer. It does not need tons of watts. I am guessing a 3 watt amp will be reasonably loud. It is very fast sounding. It doesn't have a heavy cone, huge diameter or travel voice coil, and is not for heavy bass thumping, or super loud use. That being said, in a normal room, it is super clean, fast, loud,clear, and will do plenty of bass, especially in a cabinet designed for that, and possibly with additional EQ, and with several hundred watts available. The 1601b is slightly more bassy sounding, 1601c similar to 1601a, in the same 8 cubic foot cab.

The TL-1102 is a small hifi woofer, TL-1101H is a high efficiency small woofer, and the TH-1201H is a midrange that is very high efficiency, high fidelity, and can go low for a midrange, but not into the bass region. The 1201 sounds more clear in the midrange region than the small woofers. If you put your ear up to it, it seems most of the sound eminates from the dust cap region, and hardly any sound comes from closer to the edge. I always think about figuring out how to remove the cone and still have the thing work. I doubt previous comments on the cone weight typo of 6 grams actually being 60 grams are correct. A midrange usually has much lower cone weight than a woofer, so 6 grams is probably closer to the truth.

It is 60g, no doubt about this: all T/S calculations lead to this figure for MMS.
If I remember correctly that puts the mass breakpoint around 700Hz, which is already really high for a 12" cone.
