    SSA Icon Question

    I didn't post this in the other thread because I mean no disrespect. So I didn't want to dump on their thread.

    Is it just me or were others of you expecting this sub to end up being cheaper than it is? I mean, I haven't heard one so I'm not saying its overpriced or not worth it. Just from the posted specs I expected it to be a little cheaper.

    Let me simplify it for alot of you on here, it has SSD specs and a Q price.

    Re: SSA Icon Question

    I noticed it to be more along the ligngns with the Q. The only difference to me was the Bl and the RMS rating.


    I think it was priced accordingly.

    Re: SSA Icon Question

    But, to be honest the only thing that I wished was that it had a higher RMS rating. But, Im 100% certain that their logic behind it> than mine

    Re: SSA Icon Question

    I think thats what is throwing me off. The low rms rating.

    If it was 1200 I would be like OMG golly jeepers!!

    Re: SSA Icon Question

    Keep in mind a tri stack motor, and is a completely different woofer than a Q or SSD.

    The Q and SSD have double stack.

    A little less throw than a Q though.

    I would expect it to be a very nice sounding woofer, that can get loud, if coaxed.

    Haha, it makes everyone horny when a sub is rated for 1kw or whatever, I like find a sub that has a lower RMS rating.

    It doesn't mean much anyways, generally subs can take more than that, but why would you want a sub that can handle all kinds of power anyways?

    Re: SSA Icon Question

    I don't have a need for any subwoofer. I just follow the goings on in the industry. Like I said, I imagine this is a great woofer.

    Can handle, or NEEDS all kind of power? The wording makes it 2 totally different questions- Their are several reasons to have a high power handeling on a woofer- take more abuse, generally (although not always) the ability to OVERALL get louder... and alot of people (especially younger people) like to brag about having "2k watts" on a sub...

    Hey, I like how you put that


    Can vs Need.

    I'm not welfare for subwoofers.

    Haha, I don't like subs that need.

    Then there are others who have multiple drivers of mismatched sizes on an amp that isn't really adequate for even half of them! *squints at your signature and chuckles about the 'Tard contained within*

    Re: SSA Icon Question

    I would love to give the new Icon (or Icons) a try but they aren't a particularly good match for my monoblock and I do not see myself buying a different amp just to see if I might like what they have to offer.
    I have no doubts that they are a more than solid driver but they just aren't tailored for the setup I'm running and my budget doesn't allow for too much change just for experimentation
