    If youre wanting to compete in SPL or just have the absolute most output you possibly can, then the MTX's would be ok. No doubt, MTX makes great SPL subs.

    If youre wanting a ton of output with great smooth sound quality, then stick with the SR's.

    Me personally, Id rather have the better sounding SR's over the louder MTX.

    Sloppy and full of mud. I would say they're good for volume and while they're no SR/IDMax/W6/Focal etc but they're better than Kenwood/Audiobahn/Visonik/etc...
