    Glad you posted this! I was going to post something similar because I'm looking to replace a 15" and an 18." In the 70's, I used to have cab that was called the Cerwin-Vega B-36 Earthquake (a very appropo name), that was great! Now, I'm looking to replace some rather inefficient Eminence speakers and am looking at the Cerwin-Vega Intense line. However, I'm anxious to see what else people post here besides the old JBL reco. JBL's are good but they sound kind of " well-behaved" to me.
