    x series vs zv4

    Just wondering how these compare on say 1500w each. I know the X series are made to get low, but are the zv4's more spl oriented than the x series generally speaking? I'm kinda under the impression that the X series are a little more SQ oriented.

    They're both made to get low. From specs and what I've heard, the Z will hit lows just a little bit better.

    Re: x series vs zv4

    Do you know if there a significant difference in output between the two?

    are u sure on that? i know the zv4 has 2 more spider then the x so i would assume the suspension on the x is softer but i mean i all ways wondered this question as well.

    Re: x series vs zv4

    I heard a set of the ZV4 15s this past saturday and they get stupid low and do kind of decent on the numbers but it seems to me that there big brother little brother woofers x being the little brother haha but they are very similar just one will take care of business better than the other.

    Zs are not SPL woofers by any means. They're music subs.

    The Z is supposed to have more output, but I don't know if it qualifies as "significant"

    Re: x series vs zv4

    i thought the X was rated at 1250w and the Zv4 was 1750w, idk those could have been prototypes? sundown releases alot of information and updates on upcomoing products thru facebook.

    Re: x series vs zv4

    X = 1250 RMS
    * 4-layer CCAW Round Wire Coil
    * 4-layer spider pack
    * 190mm x 66mm magnet stack (50mm mech clearance)
    * 15mm top plate thickness
    * 55-58mm long coil depending on impedance

    Z v.4 = 1750 RMS
    * 8-layer Aluminum Flat Wire Coil
    * 5-layer spider pack
    * 220mm x 75mm magnet stack (62.5mm mech clearance)
    * 30mm top plate thickness
    * 65mm long coil winding

    -----

    They perform very similarly on the bottom end up to the limits of the X; the Z v.4 has a higher limit.

    The Z v.4 also features double shorting rings vs. a single pole cap ring on the X series -- so lower inductance and less inductance induced distortion on the Z v.4 series.

    Neither is a slouch -- but the Z v.4 is beefed up across the board

    Jacob,
    Which would perform better in a sealed enclosure? Or were both the x and the zv4 designed to perform better in low tuned ported enclosures?

    i have an X18 and it loves the low tuning i gave it (30 hz, 8" aero, daily setup). prior to this tuning i had it at 33hz and anything below ~34hz was mostly just air. people say the Zv4 will do better than the X due to more motor force, but the X is very musical and is perfect for me since i'm not a number chaser. i just like good loud music lol.

    the X suspensioni s quite soft. it flops all over. it's great though.

    Re: x series vs zv4

    I would love to do a beefy 30hz ported box. I have my heart set on a zv4-10. My issue is, I'm severely space limited. So, of the two: x vs zv4, which would perform better sealed (if either would).
