    Re: SA-8 v.2 Prototype Finally Done

    (pretty much nobody thermally hurt an SA-8 ever).

    i did , 1600rms on 1 sa8 did great in my box mechy wise but after about 8mins the coil died. i did put 4x rated but thats still warrentied rite lmao...
    really mechy wise it would have handled more that the 1600rms i had to throw at it on music.
    tough lil subs...

    Re: SA-8 v.2 Prototype Finally Done

    Pricing is coming out a bit higher than expected due to the amount of aluminum in the frame, the large internal aluminum shorting ring, extra steel in the motor, added labor to assemble, and the doubled leads -- but I didn't want to make any compromises so it is what it is!

    I wanted to keep it around ~150 MAP but it looks like it will be $185 MAP (same as an SA-10) -- of course we have to keep in mind there is really nothing else like this on the market to compare to price-wise. I have NOT added a penny to the price to cover what I paid in tooling -- I am pricing ONLY on cost to produce per unit so this is the best price I could possibly offer on this driver. I think when we see one of these standing next to an SA-8 v.1 it will pretty much explain itself visually.

    So -- that being said I will likely produce an SD-2 8" to fill in the large price gap from the E8v.2 ($89) to this guy ($185)... so I'll start development on the SD-2 model soon to come in around the pricing level of the SA-8 v.1 as we know it today so we'll have a full spectrum depending on budget.

    Since we now know the MAP can we get an est pre-order price and timeline of when we can do so?

    I have the pre-breakin specs as well -- they need a nice break-in period to get the more settled in specs. The Fs and Qts will drop as usual. Take note especially of how low the Le is now... this will extend the top-end response and reduce inductive distortion significantly from prior models.

    These will go through rigorous testing before approval for production. I am hoping we got it right the first time -- but if I am not 100% satisfied I will make more tweaks before doing full production. Stay tuned !

    I'll get that together after I test these prototypes.

    I could do without the logos all over and the magnet boot.. I would think that drives the price up a bit. I know you wont have any trouble selling them even at the current price though. Very nice looking driver! Good work as always!

    Doesn't change the price at all -- the parts had to be custom tooled anyway. The goal is to fend off copy-cat products using my molds that I paid for.
