I'm from the old school where big bass required big woofers.

In researching new speakers to replace my 20+ year old Cerwin Vegas, I find that most full range speakers today are tower designs using multiple small woofers for the bass.

Some designs use two woofers, some use three. Most are in the 5" - 6" range.

In any event, could you please explain how smaller woofers, even multiple woofers, can perform as well as the old 12" woofers in my CVs?

Thanks for your help.
