So after everything that's been going on the past few months I finally got things sorted out and have the LMS-18 back in my system.
I'm using a custom built eD enclosure with a quad front baffle and a Behringer EP 4000 with a fan swap to power it.
First impressions, it has every bit of output as the dual HSU VTF-15 but the sub-sonics are 10 fold better (While Amp limited). When I start seeing the clip lights flicker on the Behringer (which is about -8.0db below reference depending on the material) it feels like a full body massage. I am only running 3db hot as opposed to the dual HSU which I was running closer to 6db after running Audyessy XT32.
I can't say anything that hasn't been said about this driver already. I'm a believer of all the hype that has surrounded it for the past few years. I'll get another next year along with a bigger amp but for now this sub/amp combo will do.

Mains and Surrounds: NHT 1.5s, Center: NHT AudioCenter-1, Subs: SVS PC13-Ultra, SB13-Ultra, Receiver: Pioneer Elite VSX-23, Amps: Emotiva RPA-1, POS-1, Display: Panasonic TC-P50G10
Pictures would be awesome. Also, curious about the specs of the enclosure? Size, etc...
Pics added, rat nest of wires and all.
Enclosure measures: 25h x 20d x 22w
Yep, that is awesome... What are those mains? Do you like them?
Wow... looks like you have some serious headroom all the way around. Thats awesome. Even if you are a huskers fan. Curious- your setup is built more around HT? I know you've had a lot of different gear, but do they stack up well musically? Sorry for the interrogation... I'm trying to wrap my brain around musically inclined speakers vs HT? Trying to make some decisions myself.
damn that's a mean sub.
would a higher powered amp give better performance that a second similar setup won't get you?
just thought that a significantly higher powered amp would cost big bucks ... enough to consider a second set.
unless you don't have the space.
