There is a difference from rating a sub to make a consumer base happy and rating a sub based on years of results and an engineer thinking about a goal..and spending countless hours designing something different.. and then making it happen..Luckily with this sub and the other lines Murphy makes is the latter. The SHD is years of testing of his ideas and combining new ideas that are improvements from past designs. If Murphy is confident in the 5000w rating under the the correct operating conditions then why should anyone question it. We all know stuff breaks but like I tell guys you have to know when to turn the vol knob down. It's just common sense. Just because you have 20,000w on tap to throw at your subs doesnt mean you dont have to be responsible doing it.
If you have a car that a manufacture says can do 0-60mph in 3 seconds, does it mean at every stop light your going to push your car to the limits and do 0-60mph in 3 seconds at every stop light? I would hope not.. First off it would get kind of old doing that lol.. and it's people like that that will soon run into a problem and damaging something, hit a light pole, or kill someone else. Being responsible is apart of maintaing a manufacure rating and can be easy as just knowing what your doing and knowing when to back off the vol. I dont know anyone that would want to bang on their **** for 30mins strait at full tilt. First off it is annoying to get your head beat in that long and no matter what the manufacture rating is something will break.
Keep up the good work Tantric and hopefully I will get a chance myself to play with a few of your products in the CRX.
Carry on & Keep bumping and just say no to clipping
