Yeah, sorry, my wording was unclear though we're getting at the same thing. I probably should have written "is Xsus>Xmag or Xmag>Xsus?".
I was using "motor limited" to describe Xsus>Xmag, because the "limit" of the driver's excursion in that case is how far the motor can push it. The suspension still has room to move, but the motor cannot push it further.
I was using "suspension limited" to describe Xmag>Xsus, because the "limit" of the driver's excursion is the soft parts. The motor can push them beyond their limits.
But I can see how someone would take the same terms and see the opposite meaning in them.
At any rate, I generally prefer Xsus>Xmag, because I really don't like the sound of voicecoil formers banging against metal plates. That applies to any system, but goes more so in a hatchback.
