I would be looking at JTR Captivators or that Monolith dual 15" for a really tangible upgrade.
A big sub like that is a lot of fun nearfield too. I've been having a blast with mine. If you have the room Ryan it's pretty cool. Especially with deep tactile bass. I'm crossed at 90 hz and not having any issues with localization.

I would say it's worth repeating that in order to get non-localizable near-field bass, it really helps to have the sub positioned directly behind the listening position. That way the sound pressure hits both ears equally.

If you are wanting something to outperform the X13s, you will need to spend big. Those are very good subwoofers. I would be looking at JTR Captivators or that Monolith dual 15" for a really tangible upgrade. Something else you can do is just get more of them thereby smoothing out the response even more and getting the perfect bass.
Ha.
There's a new thread brewing, Shady. Might be a moment; I have a lot on my plate in the upcoming weeks.

Subwoofer Summer is coming!

Finally. It is coming.

I am starting to not like you, Dan. You just want me to change out my whole speaker/sub setup instead of more reasonable use of the funds. Damn you.
Yeah, I'm kinda starting to think that as well! I've been looking at these speakers for a while.

RBH would be a definite consideration if I change things up. Might have to go visit Dan and Pogre first, tho (assuming we can do stuff like that in the near future).

Once things calm down a little more with the pandemic where you feel comfortable coming down you are more then welcome Lovin. I've got plenty of spare rooms

In fact that goes to KEW Shady Snakeyes Ryan Andrew and all you guys I've gotten to know well over the years

Honestly I could use the feedback from you guys. It's easy to wow my friends when they come over and we all have buyers bias

But your guys experience and expertise in helping me push this system to it's highest potential would be most welcome

Plus we'd have a lot of fun my friends!!!!
