    FLXX uses a 4 spoke basket and the obsidian uses a 12 spoke. They both have rubber surrounds but the obsidian uses a proprietary surround that works a bit differently. They both used stitched surround/cones but a lot of subs are starting to use that. Cone is your standard 12" paper cone

    Yeah after 4 minutes of 600w going to it it blew. Obsidian lasted twice as long and had more of a continuous amount of power going to it whereas the FLXX was babied to start off

    they are a sundown sd knockoff imo
    so pretty much the flxxs are good exept for the fact they cant take 5 times the rated power lol

    Or to be correct - they can't take rated power for nearly as long as another company's product that they claimed they "don't have less cooling" than. The Flxx woofer did a good job in the SPL test against the Obsidian...until it blew.

    Nick can chime in about what the testing really was. That wasn't on music I can assure you, it was most likely a free air test tone at like 50hz

    I'm sure you'd be happy with them. You're not running enough power to cause any issues with blowing them either so I wouldn't see any problems.
