    I was just looking on their site for some info and noticed a difference in the sensitivity ratings for their new HT210S and EX112S sub.

    The HT has a rating of 100db, whereas the EX sub is only 96 db. Now I've heard that a perceived difference of +3db in a cab requires a doubling of wattage. So, before I contact Jim himself for an explanation, why the discrepancy of 4 db? Is the EX112S there to provide low end presence and less than equal volume to the HT210S?

    mr. bergantino it a pretty smart guy, so i'm sure the components work well together. you can't always go by the numbers. if a cab has a rating of 100db that does not mean 100db from 20-20k. matter of fact the cab is probably -10 or -12 at 40hz which would make the cab 88 or 90db at 40hz. if the sub is 96db at 40hz then it is giving you 6-8db more sound in the bass frequencies.

    i have no idea what the real frequencies and db ratings actually are, i just kinda gave you an example of how it works.
