    Whats the difference between SA-8v1 and v2?

    So I bought a recone from Sundown, obviously its ready to drop in. I also got a kit from woofercooker but its not ready to drop in, all the parts are not glued together. I was comparing the coil and its seems shorter than the one from Sundown. Did I get a v1 from WC and a v2 from SD or was there a v1.5 possibly?

    When I originally got my SA-8's I got them from WC and another member, the one not from WC was bad and I got a recone from SD. Originally it was a v1 but with the recone being newer I asked WC for one with the newer softparts. So I'm confused on what I have. I can get pics tonight.



    Current set up: 94 Toyota Chaser (1JZ motor) On deck for that car? No HU atm, 3 way active (Vifa Tweets, CDT 04's and 06's) powered by either a Zed Draconia , 2 Obsidian Audio 10's powered by a B2 Audio Zero.3

    Nissan Cube3: Stock Nav HU, need Processor, speakers and subs. Will be using Soundstream DaVinci for power

    66 Pontiac GTO, modified stock radio, Crossfire CFA 302, Kicker KS6.2's in the front kicks, Crossfire CFA 452 for the 6x9's I need.

    I believe SA may have changed the coil when they added the spider rings and changed surrounds/spiders. there were a few little tweaks with the SA8s over time.

    Both are D4, just wanted to make sure I wouldn't really have any issues if I needed to use both.

    If you got one that the box says "v.2" -- we made 60 of those as a test-bed... they have a totally different coil.

    If the box says "SA-8" or "SA-8 v.1" on it then the D4 coils should be the same unless one is a darker color.

    If you e-mail pics of everything I can probably tell you what it is.
