    American made subs?

    Who besides JL Audio makes there subs here in the U.S.? I was about to order some Sundown SA-12's but found out that they are made in China. I will not pay $200 a piece for Chinese speakers. I am willing to pay more for good ole American made stuff. Sad part is I had Pro-Rabbit build me a box for the SA-12's, what good American sub will work in the same box? I am willing to spend up to $400 per sub.

    You'll get away with something better for less than 400 a piece.

    Fi and SSA are not owned by the same guy, they are built in the same place but are not the same company. Either way both are quality and you cannot go wrong with either.

    Edit: I thought you mentioned SSA and Fi, guess not so you can disregard this post.

    Re: American made subs?

    How about Incriminator Audio 12" Dual 4-Ohm 600W RMS Lethal Injection Series Subwoofer, I see the enclosure specs are pretty close as the SA-12 enclosure specs. Would my box designed for the SA-12's work with these?
