  1. The ds and sw are very similar in maximum output at their respective program powers. Bennett from B&C said you should only really use the sw if you need the higher power handling, otherwise it doesn't really matter which you pick so you should go for the cheaper one. Here is a hornresp of different drivers I've compared in the SKhorn

  2. @m_msThe CX800 is a sub developed by PK sound geared primarily towards electronic bass music. They are quite popular around here in the electronic music scene as having PK on your flyer generates a decent amount of hype for these types of shows. Now this is my own opinion based on experiences attending and throwing events on the BC West Coast but i have found they suffer from pretty bad port compression especially when pushed even reasonably hard. The bass essentially turns into a very boomy/chuffy/distorted one note kinda deal that's meant to be more felt than heard. When run properly arrayed and at a reasonable level they can sound pretty good for dubstep and drum&bass but i have found that the Skrams sound way tighter and punchier overall especially when it comes to house/techno/trance. Kick drums sound like actual kick drums where as on the cx800 the kick often loses its definition. At the end of the day i think the Skrams just do a better job overall at reproducing the original program material compared to the cx800 which impart more of their PK signature sound which sacrifices musicality for a more visceral feeling. There are many examples of ported double 18's out there that don't suffer from this type of problem, it just so happens that in our scene PK sound is used almost exclusively now a days so that's why people at the show noticed the difference in the Skrams.

  3. The QSC sub is larger and probably has more vent area compared to the Skram (when you block Skram ports to reach the same ~25Hz(?) tuning), meaning the QSC will be louder in the sub bass. Skram is front loaded, which means it's more efficient (louder) in the mid/upper-bass region. Skram is basically a band pass, which means it also masks some distortion. That would be the 3 main differences I guess. Skram has a rising native voltage sensitivity, while the QSC is probably pretty flat, going by my gut feeling here.
