In sort of a tangent from the other Bass BA driver thread......
I was pretty set on thinking W4 had among best bass of universals. Great extension and great texture due to 2 bass drivers.
Now I'm am listening to UMPro30. Much larger single bass driver. Definitely more kick and more slam and it seems the texture is still all there.
SO.....W4 defintely doesn't have the amount of bass as Pro30. Pro 30 has no mid bass hump so it is solid from that standpoint and does NOT bleed into the midrange. I think I am preferring the EFFORTLESS bass of Pro30 more.
Can any of this be measured and what does it really mean? Can they both extend the same but one have more "oomph" behind it?
Is measuring bass different than measuring treble and midrange? Bass can extend deep but if there is no "oomph" behind it there is a problem. Is the "oomph" portion measurable?
