Default Thoughts of Seismic Audio?

I've seen Seismic Audio for sometime now, just wondering if anyone has experience with the 'New Madrid 18'.

They recently gave the TS Parameters:
Resonant Frequency (fs): 48Hz
DC Resistance (Re): 9.5 Ohm
Mechanical Q (Qms): 2.3
Electromagnetic Q (Qes): 1.1
Total Q (Qts): 0.75
Compliance Equivalent Volume (Vas): 157.7 Ltr
Mechanical Compliance of Suspension (Cms): 63mm/N
BL Product (BL): 21.2 Tm
Diaphragm Mass Airload (Mms): 173.5g
Surface Area of Cone (Sd): 1.3k cm2

Nothing about X-Max and a rather high RE and fs.

If you had a dog, and you were to ask him this question, and just then he barfed on the floor, I'd say you have a very smart dog.

Their racks are OK, and their speaker wire is OK (cheap connectors though). Don't buy their speakers!

It is probably on par with other products in it's price range.

$160 will also get you a Sigma-pro, $200 for a Low-rider.
I have never used any Seismic products but not everyone can afford B&C/Eighteen Sound/etc.

Maybe the experts here can offer some advice as to what would be an alternative in that general price range.
