I would REALLY question the 102dB spec. I would like to know what freq it is measured at. How about a MEASURED response graph.
There is one MAJOR manufacturer who rates one of their 2x18" cabinets at 108dB. AND it will do it, BUT ONLY at 1800Hz. Not exactly what I call a bass freq.
Many manufacturers will choose any high output number they can see (with no freq attached) and call that sensitivity, whether or not you would actually be able to use it.
There are NO 2x18" cabinets that can put out 102dB with 1 watt input at 1 M and half space and under say 100Hz, much less under 70Hz.
There is no way it goes as low in freq either as stated-within the parameters listed.
