Sheldon,

Having heard a very large Adamson sub back in the mid ‘80s putting out more kick/bass than anything of similar size I had heard at the time, including the SDL-7, I’ll be interested in the outcome of this shoot out.

I have not heard the T-21, but would go with Evan’s assessment of a “one note wonder” as characterizing the sound of the Adamson sub I heard, though that also was the way the kick and bass were mixed as I recall.

If Adamson’s T-21 specs are correct, they work out to 106.5 dB one watt one meter, and with the power handling the 140.5 continuous output looks believable.
Double spider Kevlar composite sandwich cones with 6 inch voice coils and a boatload of neo magnet are not like the usual big cone.

In some certain frequency range I think it may be possible that a pair of T-21 subs could have more output than 4) Labs, maybe even 6.
If I remember correctly, the Lab has a droop in the response around 60 HZ, and the T-21 may be “big” there.

How are you going to determine who is the “winner”?


in the past, we simply ground stack the subs for the competition,(under a full range cabinet on an aux) subs are processed exactly how they would be in the field, with what ever amplification necessary. each stack is fed from individual L/R outs from a mixer. source input:cd player. winners are determined by spl meter dba and by ear,(how they sound) we also look for stuff like "amplifier clipping" and "audible distortion" if anyone has to "empty" their amplifiers out to keep up, they lose: (in practice, the show would be over not to long after.)

Sheldon,

Sounds like fun, but you will probably continue to like the sound of your subs better, and he his, so the “by ear” portion may be a draw if your votes are given the same weight.

Considering you have almost double the power, and six cabinets to two, I expect the Labs to dominate.
It would be interesting to turn them on or off one at a time to see where you two are in agreement as to “matched” level, as perceived and by the meter.

Like everyone else reading, I’m looking forward to the results of the competition.

We need a comparison of a T21 and a Danley TH221.

The TH221 goes almost an octave lower hence it's nickname the Cinemonster. The better choice would be the TH812 but we'd welcome the opportunity to compare either the TH812 or the TH221 to the T21.

Silas,

Care to show me the response curve of four LABs compared to one and two cabinets?

Oh that’s right, still waiting on the 4015 LF response curve you promised last winter...

;^)

Laughing I had Smaart running on those subs the other day; it's finally warm enough. I wasn't specifically measuring the subs though I was measuring some tops, so I don't have anything to post. Soon though I will.
