    DanP, have you used the TB W6-1139SIF and if so how do the two compare? I am using the W6 and it is impressive for what it is.

    Thank you and very cool little sub.

      The W6 is awesome, and I admit, I have not seen distortion measurements for this driver, but I don't think it can match the distortion performance of the SW168 over the most likely usable passband. The W6 is a monster and I've used it a bunch of times, but the SW168 is my new go-to 6.5" sub when distortion performance is more critical than cost.

        Thank you very much Dan. I will keep it in mind for future builds. Funny, when I was typing my question I originally said I am using the W6 for a non critical application. Meaning I built a soundbar with one. It is great for that but with the little PE 2.1 amp I was never too worried about the distortion.

        But for music I would look more critically. Thank you again.
