    recone is easy just make sure to shim it right with paper cards and make sure to clamp the whole woofer

    oh **** yes the volume was cranked...just trying to listen to my highs

    but really, they were loud as ****. First night will gain at 1/3, my rear view mirror bracket snapped off, and my mirror ripped out of my window with a chunk of class with it and cracks in 2 spots.....crazy flex/ air. I didn't think I was too bad to them but I def learned.

    anyone in michigan do recones? I just hear the glue for the aq is a bish to clean off?

    some people do it for free, especially if you do the cleaning and removal of the bad parts, assume maybe 30 bucks ish

    yes they are rated at 2 ohms...I had them wired to 2 ohm...hence dual 2 ohms subs...but the crossfire is sweet so far, rated at 12 volts.
