As much as I despised my DD 1515, I once heard a single 3510 in a Honda that completely took my breathe away. I didn't think it was the cleanest sounding sub I've ever heard, but man did it slam something ridiculous.

You might be surprised at who else uses American made coils and softparts. I have American made coils, cones, and spiders and apart from the coils (I definitely prefer the made in USA ones) I've had reasonable results with imported cones and spiders. Also I've been making carbon fiber dustcaps and I can promise you it does NOT cost 80$+ in materials to make an 8" dustcap.
DC has colored CF caps now.. Just thought I would mention it. Pretty cool. And they are working on CF cones.
I tried to look up what year they made the 95 but google came up empty for me.
it was early 1990's when the 9500 came out, there was plenty of stuff before it.
I guess since staying on topic isn't going to happen, I'll join this generic DD discussion.
The whole 'pioneered the large magnet game' thing is kinda pointless anyway. Who defines what a "big" magnet is? All subs weren't funky pup sized before 9500's came out.
My big problem with DD isn't their design style, their cone material, their ungodly tight suspensions, or even their prices. The negative for me with DD is their attitude about not publishing specs. They are a relatively small company that caters to non-mainstream car audio enthusiasts and SPL competitors. So to withhold specs, to me, is not only a pita for consumers, but a confusing and questionable business decision. xmax/xmech, fs, Qes/Qms, etc... these are all important specs for a knowledgeable enthusiast to know. I dont want to just build to their recommendation, or test multiple boxes Ive had to make just to get a clue what my alignment is/will be.
