    Oa15 = sa15 ??????

    Is the obsidian audio 15 the same as the Sundown SA 15?

    I know what a "cookie cutter" sub is and that's the reason why I ask. They do look awfuly similar.

    The major difference is, the SA15 is like $400+.......the OA15 is $160



    All day I'm clippin'
    voltage be dippin'
    I don't give a damn,
    cause my trunk always hittin'!

    creating a proper sound wave. Step one, turn it up until clipping. Step two, done.

    Re: Oa15 = sa15 ??????

    my bad the sa15 seems to be $235 at woofersetc.om

    and it doesn't look like the obsidian 15". I may have done a bit of "mixing **** up". lol

    But it seems like the Sundown Z-15 v2 is the equivalent of the OA15 v2 . Again the Z-15 is $440.......

    What's the difference technically?

    OA v1 and V2 both utilize a 2.5" coil. All of Sundown Z series have a 3" coil.

    They might have the same base model board, but Jacob does a lot of upgrades to the amps.

    Re: Oa15 = sa15 ??????

    There seems to be a lot of confusion over here. A subwoofer (or "sub") is a woofer, or a complete loudspeaker, which is dedicated to the reproduction of low-pitched audio frequencies known as bass. The typical frequency range for a subwoofer is about 20–200 Hz for consumer products,[1] below 100 Hz for professional live sound,[2] and below 80 Hz in THX-approved systems.[3] Subwoofers are intended to augment the low frequency range of loudspeakers covering higher frequency bands.

    Subwoofers are made up of one or more woofers in a loudspeaker enclosure capable of withstanding air pressure while resisting deformation. Subwoofer enclosures come in a variety of designs, including bass reflex (with a port or passive radiator in the enclosure), infinite baffle, horn-loaded, and bandpass designs, representing unique tradeoffs with respect to efficiency, bandwidth, size and cost. Passive subwoofers have a subwoofer driver and enclosure and they are powered by an external amplifier. Active subwoofers include a built-in amplifier.[4]

    The first subwoofers were developed in the 1960s to add bass response to home stereo systems. Subwoofers came into greater popular consciousness in the 1970s with the introduction of Sensurround in movies such as Earthquake, which produced loud low-frequency sounds through large subwoofers. With the advent of the compact cassette and the compact disc in the 1980s, the easy reproduction of deep and loud bass was no longer limited by the ability of a phonograph record stylus to track a groove,[5] and producers could add more low frequency content to recordings. As well, during the 1990s, DVDs were increasingly recorded with "surround sound" processes that included a Low-frequency effects (LFE) channel, which could be heard using the subwoofer in home theater systems. During the 1990s, subwoofers also became increasingly popular in home stereo systems, custom car audio installations, and in PA systems. By the 2000s, subwoofers became almost universal in sound reinforcement systems in nightclubs and concert venues.

    But all in all, Its whatever you can get cheaper in between the two.

    How do you figure any version of the Z series and the OA woofers are similar ? Other than baskets and gaskets not a single part is the same between them.
