x2!!! on SVS. The pairing with MMGs is magical. Ask MD1032 who came to my house to hear it ... he has much better hearing than I do, does organ tuning for a living, plays in a band, etc.
I really mean magical, if you follow the SVS tuning procedures carefully.
The shipping box for the SVS says "Best $1000 you'll ever spend on audio" and they got that right. (Actually that inscription is an invitiation for having your house broken in to, or to tip your co-workers off that you have more money than brains [in their opinion], depending on where you have the gigantic box shipped to ... I actually wrote SVS and told them to stop putting that on the outside!).
Smooth as silk cross-over, no phase problems ... just bass!
Crank it up? No problem here ... my amp is SS, 2x200 wpc into 8 ohms, 2x375 wpc into 4 ohms is the spec ... MMGs are what, 5 ohms? And my room is tiny, but I can do rock concert for sure. Listen to Janis sing (or whatever verb we need to use for her, one-of-a-kind she was, miss her) Ball and Chain on the SACD of Cheap Thrills ... at Fillmore West volume ... it's the sixties all over again ... if I could only get my wife to wear a tie-dye halter top ...
