Hello,

There really is no "best" speaker. There are speakers that are "better" suited to an application over another. Whenever I start to decide on a speaker system I like to define the goals first. This will help narrow the field down and focus the selection process.

What is the application?
EDM for huge audiences outdoors, home theater, stereo playback of LP's, etc?

Budget.
How much $ is available for the project?

Size / weight.
How big can the subwoofers be? Is a 1600L cabinet ok? Will they be transported a lot or set in a fixed install? Is 500lbs too much weight? Most people have a maximum size and weight range they are willing to tolerate.

Answering these questions would provide information that other members could use to help provide advice to you.

thanks everyone,
For the applications you have in mind, you will require an array of these or equivalent. There is a relationship between wavelength and array size. In open air the VD requirements are much larger as well. I assume you are looking for extraordinary performance, thus the recommendation for this particular driver and related drive system.
Regards,
WHG
