I’m new an I’m writing from Italy,so do not look my bad english XDXD
I’m going to buy an Arendal 1723 2v to replace it with a Paradigm Sub 25 that broke. Since another Arendal contender was the Svs Pb 16 Ultra, I was comparing the measurements provided by the CEA 2010 which provides the maximum Spl output.
Unfortunately I noticed that in the frequency range from 20 hz to 31.5 hz, the Arendal 1723 2v loses 7-8 db of Spl compared to the Pb 16 Ultra.And frankly, as an enthusiast and future buyer of Arendal, I was very surprised and I thought that two 13.8″ drivers, which are equivalent to a 21″, could have a smaller gap than a single 16″ driver of the Svs Pb 16 Ultra rather than 7-8 db difference.

What do you think ?
Thank you for your participation and attention
