Nick posted up some pics on facebook the other day of a 3" coil proto he is working on. it's a larger triple stack motor that looks awesome. I'd wait a little bit and see where that goes before you buy stuff lol

When I get the bandpass built for it, sure. Might be able to start cutting some wood today, but I have to wait for the weather to get a bit better before I start building it (I have to assemble it in the garage with the door open)

Isn't OA built by Nick and Jacob? I would think it is shared technology from Sundown and Fi. Maybe we should nick-name it SunFi

You mean sundown and SI (stereo integrity)? And yeah I believe it is a collaborative effort between the two. Maybe sundownz would be willing to expand a bit..

Hmm, I could have sworn it was Nick@Fi. Oh well, I'm not sure, Haha yeah maybe sundownz will help us remember.

Nope. Totally different soft parts and motor.

Nick @ Stereo Integrity designed the subs. Jacob @ Sundown is more on the amp side of the company if I remember correctly.

Its far from a Nightshade. :laugh: Its a double stack 2.5" coiled motor. High roll surround etc.. Shares nothing with a NS or any other Sundown woofer for that matter.

OA does a dam good job of packing their subs.

Makes sense, cause I sent emails to both addresses (subs @ obsidian and amps @ obsidian) and nick answered the one about subs and jacob answered the one about amps

Obsidian Audio was formed by Jacob Fuller and Nick Lemons

Absolutely not true.

There's no need for him to come in here and verify that Obsidian is not, in any way shape or form, associated with Fi as I am the other half of Obsidian Audio. Jake does the amps - I do the subs. It's as simple as that.

I don't know whether you're joking or being serious. Either way here are a few pics to show the physical differences between a Nightshade and an Obsidian. And if I could buy a Nightshade for $138 I would buy all of them and re-sell them for MAP! :)

Mitch and a few other people have been the only people to make true statements so far.

Back OT, I'm glad you like the driver. :D

Well considering I didn't know who the other half was, Jacob was the only person who I would completely trust since he was the half I was sure of. SourDeez trolls the crap out of the forum so you barely have to take anything he posts as a serious statement or question. SourDeez :up2somet:
