Opened up my sub box today and the cone is cracked on the e12a.
Price/Performance sub that works well in small enclosures?

I was replacing the box and when I got the sub out and turned it over I saw the crack. That seems to be an issue with the e12a and why they don't make them anymore.
Thinkng about it, when I first got the 12a it was very punchy and tight. Lately it's been sloppy and boomy. It's time move on to better.
BTW, I don't plan on looking at every sub from 8-18 here. I'll spare the forum :)

Here's what happen to mine I think.
"the 12A's had problems with cracking the cone if you pushed the speaker too hard. When you reached Xmax the sub would bottom out and that did not end well."
I had 900w to it, and did push it at times. What I liked about the 12a was the tight bass, it popped while it thudded and would go pretty low. I don't need 10hz but a clean 30 would be nice. Price is always an issue with me but something reasonably priced that does "it's thing" very well generally get's my money.
I'm thinking something <$150 should get me an upgrade to the 12a.
