From what I've read on avsforum, this was the sub that Danley himself used at home. And I could see why; it has the awesome response shape and phase behavior of the TH-Mini, but plays an octave lower. The location of the mouth, in the center of the box, is a good match for home theater. (You could shove it against a wall like a BDEAP.)

I wonder if DSL nuked the design because the new woofer is kinda weak?

The replacement for the driver has less xmax, less displacement, higher qts, and costs less.

I know I keep pushing the Alpines, but I'll bet the Type R 15" would work better than the new MTX Thunder 8000.

The driver used in this design is discontinued IIRC.
I really would not put the new 8000 series driver in the same class at all.

Using the OP's pic, and the manual from DSL, I made a 'guesstimate' of the TH-50.

Here's the response using the MTX, and using *four* of the Alpine SWS-10D2. (The smoother response is the Alpine, versus the 'peaky' MTX response.) Pretty nice, no?
