Compact 15" Sub (RCF TTS-15A, 905AS, DB Tech SUB-15H, etc)
« on: October 18, 2018, 07:52:21 pm »

In the market for a compact 15" sub with punch for small to medium venues and recorded music.  The 3 models in the subject line are models I've found on my own.  Ideal characteristics:
-Small form factor
-High output (relative to form factor)
-Powercon Connector
-Soft limit of 75lbs (single person hand carry-able)

Any other models I should be looking at? Has anyone heard multiple models above and able to offer a comparison? Unfortunately, the nearest dealers of this product that may have it on hand are >2.5 hours away from me.

Is there a certain frequency range you’re looking to cover? I only ask because the JTR Captivator 212 Pro is an amazing sub, especially for its size. It does a “true” (3rd party verified) 39Hz, and would possibly work very well for you.

We have six of them and love them.

Down to about 40Hz competently (not necessarily -2/3db but say no more than -5/-6) would be sufficient.  Thanks for the recommendation! The box itself is a little larger than I had in mind in terms of form factor, but the weight is on target and about 30% more driver surface area than a single 15. How is SPL?

Biggest difference between the RCF units you mentioned will be cabinet finish and RDNet. The TT speakers have a hard catalyzed coating, the normal RCF subs don't.

There's also the VUE hs-20 dual 10" sub. Seems to perform well and hit close to the size you want. Specs are remarkably similar to the RCF TTS 15. Everything I've heard from VUE has been stellar.

The TurboSound iQ15b seems to fit your list as well. I’m very happy with its performance.
