    Re: Seas G18 Midbass 7"

    How do those SEAS G18s compare to the ID OEMs as far as clarity at a high output and Low freq. output?

    Clarity is always nice with Seas drivers and although I don't have a reference for how the ID's sound, I can tell you these will belt out low frequencies without issue.

    Re: Seas G18 Midbass 7"

    Wish they were 4 ohm version. I'm not sure 50rms from my helix would be enough



    Current set up: 94 Toyota Chaser (1JZ motor) Kenwood 5907, 3 way active (Alpine DLX-Z30T Tweets, CDT 04's and 06's), Helix P Six DSP/Amp, 4 IDQ12's, MMATS D3000.1

    66 Pontiac GTO, modified stock radio, Crossfire CFA 302, Kicker KS6.2's in the front kicks, Crossfire CFA 452 for the 6x9's I need.

    They do pretty good on low power if they are free-air in the door. More power on these doesn't really make them much louder, it just adds a warmth to the sound and offers a bit more control over the motor.

    8 Ohm incentive discount. I promise you will not care once you hear them, these are phenomenal drivers.

    $185 shipped, bottom dollar!
