these little subs really surprised me on their low frequency capabilities in a small enclosure.

Good Stuff! I just did some testing the other day on 4 strato 12's in my jeep, once I found my peak frequency I burped it in the kick and did a 148.8, dash and headrest numbers weren't far off :-)

This was on a db drive okur 3500 wired at 2ohm. stock 70a alt 1 run of 1/0g stinger spv70 in the back. I did not clamp but I suspect under 1500w

Sheit. How would you put these up to a SA from sundown?

funny you ask that, I have a pair of SA 10's that I was thinking about throwing in this box for a comparison.

Well, I got my Tenney alt installed and added a run of 1/0ga and finally had the balls to wire the Strato's down to .5 ohm on my db drive 3500:

thank you sir, that's a huge compliment coming from you.

I will take some pics of box when it's light out. It has all 4 corners kerfed and a custom 7.5" aero port

vehicle is my wife's 2001 Suzuki Esteem wagon

Please do this^ I am currently trying to decide weather I want to buy two 10" stratos or 2 10" SA's. That is when I ran across this thread! Please help me choose the better subs!

I don't know what is up with the pic on eBay, but I'm sure that if you order a Strato 18" you'll get a Strato 18". Here's a few pics of mine, probably not the best pics but it's something. I also have some vids of it playing on YouTube.

Sweet. I was planning on 4 of the 10s in my car but the widest I can go with a box is 40" so I cant get 4 in there :(

Why everytime a new driver comes out the first thing people ask is how does it compare to sundown????

Well I am disappointed in my numbers from the 4 sa8v2's. I hit a 30sec average on music of 137.9. That was the format for the comp i was at. I am positive it is all in the box though. So now I am going to build a few boxes just for competing in these comps. I know this setup on the same power can achieve over 150 so I have some work to do…

Don't get me wrong the subs sound real good in the box built by double 07 but they are not as loud as they can be on 3900 watts

They are nice! I don't know about your mdf/fiberglass skills but I'd try a curved face on the box. If you follow twistedchild420 on YT he showed a trunk install like that with 4 10s and it looked real nice. It's probably more work than one would anticipate but If I had the funds/time to do another install like that, it's what I'd try... 4 10s :)
