X1 are more performant down to 80 hz.
Think I'm gonna try the MTH-30.

And usually you can have troubles with phase and delay combining two different
subs. There will be a lack of linearity IMO.

Most of clearest sound systems use only two different cabs :
Subs and midtops.
I decided to add kick bins to reach more clarity and good response.
As I'm a sub bass addict, I want my X1 just running below 70 hz.

Am I right ? Anyone ? Embarrassed

I have a MTH-30! It's a  lovely sounding cab, but i use it as a sub for small partys(40-120Hz).
I use the RCF LF12G301 because in the sim it seems a bit more linear than the PD.12SB30, and in italy RCF isn't very priceyBig smile...

I do not think MTH30 is suitable as a kick above X1. Stick with HD15 or ES18 or USB.
love begins below 40Hz

I really don't think the mth30 gives a good kick tone, another vote for es18 here.

I don't see why the MTH-30 will not give a good kick above X1 ?!

Explain me please !

I'm in a similiar position.. i was thinking of using the X1, MKB-230, and MT-130.. 
questions: 1.how would i cross it over, aren't most active crossovers 2x3way? (yes noob question but meh)
2. how many of each would i use?
