First off, I am a Digital Designs fanboy. Although the coil blew in my first one, I had to go back. This is a great driver, the SQ is great while still keeping a semi good SPL. The customer service from DD is also amazing. I was sent a new motor and vc within 3 days of calling them. They also offered me a free re-cone kit which I gladly accepted. The look is a little rough, but you grow to love it. The ONLY thing that makes this subwoofer a little worse, is the size of the VC, its no 4" HCCA coil, but it can withstand a great amount of power.
