Hey Sonnie--

Here is a graph of my setup at three different levels (12 dB apart total) that encompass the usual range I listen at. There is a plot of the difference, too, which says to me that the concern raised is not an issue in this setup.

Yep... looks like you'll be all good at nominal volumes.

The only other concern would be one the lesser sub runs out of power and the better sub keeps on going, then you'd see a difference, but that would most likely require extreme volumes, and possibly a risk to the lesser sub to test. You may not ever reach that volume, but if you do, there would no doubt be a difference... UNLESS of course they both run out about the same volume level. Databass might have the max output levels for both subs.

Way, way more extreme than I'd ever be playing them! We're talking a music-only system with three 12" or 13" subs in a 12.5 x 20 x 7 ft room. It's also very quiet, so I can play at lower levels and really hear everything. If any of those subs should run out of power, the plaster would be crumbling first!
