    Re: skar or sundown

    Wow. That's a lot of power for the Skars for sure. I know the sundown's can handle more than rated so that might be a better match.

    Re: skar or sundown

    From what I've heard, sundown sa's will get a little louder, skar vxx's will get a little lower. In the end they are pretty similar

    Have you witnessed this yourself or are you just talking to talk? I've never been more impressed on a pair of 12s in that price range. Only had 750 per, probably closer to 600 realistically. Could play down to 20hz forcefully. Doubled the power and had no issues what so ever. Had that same setup on 3k for about a year without a single problem. /nutride

    Re: skar or sundown

    I have a set of skar ma-8's that do pretty good, have not owned sundown subs, my 8's are rated at 400, i fed them as much as 600 apiece was very pleased with the output.

    Re: skar or sundown

    I currently own 2 Sundown SA 12's in a 4cf enclosure tuned to 33Hz off of an Audioque 1200 and they are very good subs IMO. They get pretty loud and sound pretty good. I have never run Skars but just from the bad reviews about the owner I would stay away from them. We don't need to support owners like that, where as Jacob from Sundown has helped me himself with a few technical questions I have had on this and other forums, and his product is also very good. My vote goes to Sundown
