    to go even further,i abused my d6 off my zx1000.1 for over a year.clipped it a couple of times and smelled the glue.coil is still showing copper.im using it now for my home theater sub running off of a yamaha p3500s with a configuration to pull 1100 watts out of the amp and it sounds outstandingly well in a crappy box atm.

    D6 is a line up. A more reasonable comparison would be to the d3,
    All in all the diamonds woulf probably do better.
    I love my type arrr winter beaterr tho.

    D6 all day, more excursion, motor force, larger voice coil, more easy to have reconed if blown, less inductance aka better transient response or ability to sound musical. Need I say more?
