    is ID arc audios build house?

    just curious. (top is an 8, bottom is a 10 just for refrence)







    notice the "one piece moulded surround and gasket" that ID pattented, the D2 sicker that ID uses (same as the one on this IDQ12 on my desk), and the cone\surround landing is exactally the same.

    news to me...

    He's not saying they are the same, simply stating that he believes ImageDynamics is ARC Audio's buildhouse for at least one line of subwoofers. ... Which is true.


    BUT... did...
    You know ARC oem's A LOT of car audio amplifiers?

    I seem to remember reading some liturature on how the Flatline was a spawn of the IDMAX.




    Don't PM me, I'm not here. Find me on SSA or ROE
    No, I won't re-upload the Big3 pictures. Don't ask.

    You are correct....the Arc line is built by ID and based off the IDQ. I have an Arc 12D4 which is essentially an IDQ with a longer throw and higher power handling....best sub I've owned to tell you the truth The Flatline is an ID Max on roids.

    Actually the Flatline has its own patented motor/cone

    Arc has nothing to do with what designs Rob Zeff/Nikola Engineering sell to other companies.

    You beat me to it

    Arc doesn't even design their own amplifiers, much less perform OEM functions. Alteast they didn't use to design their own amps...not sure if the new incarnations have more of an Arc Audio oriented design, or if they're still majorly Zeff/Ubuy/Nikola designed.
