    Well -- the box with some of the re-cone parts arrived but the subs got separated. SO here are some photos @ the shop of some of the parts


    * Progression of the baskets... to the left the original 12-spoke, then the 8-leg, and now the fully tooled Sundown frame!




    * Wider new spider on the left and older spider on the right (we have round lead spiders in stock for re-cones)


    * 10mm wider with an entire extra roll on the outside.


    * Doubled up / large round lead wires.


    * First step -- bottom spider with no leads.


    * Second step -- spacer ring in place and center glue joint support ring (there is another behind the rear spider as well)


    * Then the top spider on top of the spacer ring -- there will be a steel bolt-on ring on top of all of this in production.


    * Logo in the basket base inside, under the spiders

    * Visible external logo


    * New gasket vs. old gasket -- hard to tell but the new one is slightly bigger so we had to tool it anyway so we put the logo in it too.

    Sell them off now before everyone catches onto the V2! Should cover a good chunk of the pre-sale pricing.

    Looks sick! Hey, seeing as we are on topic over here, can you at least give an estimate of mounting depth on these? Thanks!

    Re: SA-8 v.2 Prototype Finally Done

    Based on the drawings it should be:
    Frame - 80mm depth
    Spacer - 10mm depth
    Motor - 75mm depth
    ----------
    165mm total
    6.49" total

    Gained about 1" total

    I'd prefer to measure it all in person before making an official depth statement just to make sure.

    It looks like I have been out of touch to long Jacob. These make me want to get back into car audio

    hmm I actually like these and I don't like the current sa8's
    maybe I need to grab 4 or so



    I am protesting Skar by giving them added exposure in my signature.

    Re: SA-8 v.2 Prototype Finally Done

    For reference it was CRANKED -- I'm not sure what it would take to get that kind of throw in a box but it would be ALOT of power. At levels that the original SA-8 would be making bad mechanical noise this one is dead silent -- I was excited so I pushed it as far as I could right away in the video *laughs*

    Oh, thats nice. Its not that I dont like the looks, just figured it was an added cost that wasnt needed. But since it didnt effect cost it serves your purpose and looks decent too. The first SA8s were a very nice driver... I've gotten away from using 8s, but these might pull me back in I can only imagine how beastly these look in person. The originals suprised the hell out of me!
