    Its not chrome, even though it looks it. It is just an unpainted portion of the basket frame.
    update?



    Gain on an amplifier to meant to be matched to the output voltage of your headunit. Think 3 volt, 4 volt, 5 volt pre out specs you see on headunit specs. This is how gain works for a given pre out(5 volt) theoretically. However most head units clip(start to distort) at around 80% of your volume so your 5 volt pre out wont give 5 volts Cleanly. You will most likely get 4 volts out at something like 33/40 on your volume knob and would thus set your gain to 4 volts. (these things can be measured with a GOOD Multimeter. )
    80% of your total volume is (max volume) X 0.8.
    Example is 40(is your max volume so, 40 X .8=32

    I had no choice, these had to be taken overseas for our first non-USA speaker. You are part of a dying breed, as people pretty much don't care about made in the USA, as they will buy more expensive made over seas products than lesser expensive USA made products based on hype. I may sound cynical, but that is the way the market is going. Things are just getting too expensive and the race to zero is making it near impossible to do the smaller items here in the USA.

    Might want to jump on Diyma and maybe send/high discount a pair to certain individuals over there. I know a few people over there do Klippel and are quite good at giving in depth reviews. Might be an idea to get the word out a little.

    Thanks for the suggestion. Was going to start with that on the SSA forums as usual. I've put a lot of effort on DIYma over the years. Never caught on because we are not what the member base cares about. We don't have the "eleets" fanboys or the bargain "spl" fanboys either. So our brand seems to hover in between.

    I feel ya. Its unfortunate because they tote themselves as audiophiles but only look at obnoxiously priced stuff. I am wholey impressed with the Icons SQ. I wish someone over there would talk notice of SSA drivers. Is this 6.5 gonna be more like a pro audio, get loud easily and sound good still, or are you aiming for more sq oriented?

    Thanks, I am very happy you like the Icon's sound. The Evil 6.5's are an SQ mid that is still pretty efficient. So with some power, due to the higher power handling from the solid pole and large 2" coil, they can have strong output if called upon. The market is flooded with PA style equipment, and that is not our current direction.

    Not a stupid question. You asked it due to the mass majority of the newly released speakers (non tweets and non subs) in the online market place are almost all PA's or PA style.

    What's it's usable bandwidth? It looks mid bass heavy with a fast roll off. Ideal for a 3 way
