Reconing my Skar Audio VVX 10s with some upgraded soft parts from SPLaudio. These are some of Corey special coil i think im the first to get them actually. Copper coil with a special former and wrap more copper than the Zv2 coils. High roll surround 6" black dome dust cap. These recones will be D2 wired to .5 ohm on a Skar Sk-1500.1 shooting for a 145.

Simply to upgrade soft parts as well as change the coil config.

I know but I was wondering if the subs were acting up and that's why he got recones, or if he just got recones for the hell of it...

I always recommend him over PSI cause he is all about performance...PSI can make stuff look pretty but when it comes down to durability, longevity and service Corey wins by far. He did me several one up's when he made my 18 and I couldn't be happier

He also beat PSI price the quoted me by a good margin and the recone looks beefy

Right on, I wonder what a single 15 recone custom parts would run me for future reference I'll have to look into it.

Goodluck with these I'll keep and eye out

Since the 1500rms model of the 12" and 15" are due sometime, you'll be the only person (as far as I know) with a 1200rms VVX10.

Look like your old cones punched a few things in the trunk. lol you'll enjoy the recones. Corey and Scott ssackett are my prefered builders by far. Performance is their main concern and customer service is top notch. I've got 2 subs from Corey and my big 15 from Scott. Post vids asap!
