    How about e-mailing OA with your question? They usually answer pretty quickly. If I had to guess, 1k-1200 watts rms would be the rating. What they take for burps is a whole different story. I'm guessing the SPL recone isn't intended for daily usage btw..

    If you don't know what it does, you don't need it. It will most likely make the sub hit higher numbers on a meter at high frequencies at the cost of low frequency response

    Good advice. Try emailing us vs. posting on a forum.

    Power handling on the SPL coils are rated at 650 watts RMS vs the stock 600 watts RMS for the stock versions. The quoted post hits the nail on the head.
