    Skar EVL 18 VS. SSA ICON

    Which would be best in terms of sounding good and getting loud as hell I listen to mostly rap and Decaf I wanna be heard will be running either a twisted sounds 3.5k or a sundown 3k any opinions out there and these subs are in my budget that's why I'm mostly considering them.

    The amp will be the limitation here. If you don't go with the good 3k.

    Icon hands down from a nutthugger perspective. No experience with evls but a good amount of builds with them get loud.

    Re: Skar EVL 18 VS. SSA ICON

    I'd trust the SSA's in a 3.5K build due to their reputation... but Skar is $200 less for 2 18's.

    The EVLs im sure will do fine. I just trust ssa way more, and its a better sub.

    100% chance of you getting an already made icon from some guy cancelling his order.

    A lot of people waited 2-4 months for FI's bullsh*t. My buddy barely got his evil 15s woofers after 4 months waiting and he's on team ssa. FI straight up p*ssed off a giant wave of people.

    Defend it all you want but that build house is under major scrutiny for how slow they get the product to the customer's hands right now on major audio groups on FB.

    2 18s in 10cubes? To small. That's 15" territory
