    They are fine thermally - dust caps aren't even warm... but I am right at excursion limits. They are MOVING

    Just clamped power... 4840 watts total power on my clamp. So about 1200 per sub on a burp to do that score -- this run was 153.4 dB as well, a tenth higher

    They were just on pre-sale for $175 and that ended. I am considering doing an introductory sale as well now that they are in at a similar price.

    PS: I'd do 2 cubes sealed total. They get 0.707 in 1.1 cubes.

    Very nice. I look forward to the "SQ" review.

    I sent one to an "AndyInOC" today for Marv's BBQ this weekend so we'll see what those guys think.

    If you play these at their mechanical limits all day aren't you begging for a torn spider or something?

    Have you torture tested them in that regard?

    I don't play them all day at mechanical limits Just burps.

    At 600 RMS as rated you have plenty of play room hence the rating

    PS: Been testing prototypes since last year (see original post in this thread from November) so we've done some torture!

    So what would be a safe # to run these daily (dont say 600rms lol)

    Also have you ever ripped a spider on a burp or in general?

    Have you tested them with crazy power on music?

    Lets see... I did mess up a triple joint with an SAZ-3000D on 18v per sub playing music under tuning. I dripped a bit of glue in and fixed that one, though, Brandon is still using it. That count ?

    Actually ripping a spider on these would also be VERY hard... spider is very tough. You would break glue first before tearing the spider material.

    Daily power figures are enclosure dependent -- it would be VERY difficult to thermal one of these without hitting a mechanical limit first.

    Re: Testing "SA-12" Prototype

    If someone is smart with it and using an appropriate SSF suffice to say the 600-watt rating is conservative.

    I think they sound great But I did design them... so just keep your eye out and people should be getting them soon!
