It may be like the NHT 1259 when modeled ported. However, it would have a beefier cone, motor, surround, and basket. I have a friend down the hall in my dorm who has two Titanic MkII 12" as the bass section of his massive time-aligned (a la Wilson Audio) triamped high-fidelity speakers. The woofers blend quite well and respond quickly without mud. The sound is very clean and undistorted, but we haven't actually been able to push them hard (considering they are two 12" subs in a single 10x16 ft dorm room). The only trouble is that his fiberglass enclosure for the B+G Neo8 tweeter resonates, creating a sound like a TV speaker through those frequencies. He's going to redo that. The titanics sound good, for their part.

I am not sure, if this Dayton titanic 12 MKII is proper for hi-end speaker. I plan to use it as woofer to build a pair of full-range speaker, let the low frequency near 20Hz.

the mfk-projects.com guy says that the newest titanics dont match the peerless xls .

Pay a little more,go to a manufacturer that considers quality,essential,and get some nice sound :-)

buy a shiva or titanic and have average sound,then later buy a higher quality transducer,and then wonder why you wasted your money on low quality stuff :-)

You dont know what your missing til you hear better.

I use this "peerless xls" for many years.
I think it has been passed already.
If make a 3-way loudspeaker, a resonance at 500Hz by wide ruber ring will be the trouble maker.
