    Is this a rant? Asking us to go to another brand? Most of us advocate the non-'mainstream' brands anyways. The use of commas (this thing ---> , ) and periods ( ---> .) go a long way. :p

    Define 'cone noise'...

    The only noise that a cone can really make is either it being detached from the basket, or it can be hitting the tinsel leads, also, if you're dumb enough, possibly the cone hitting the top plate...?

    None of those problems have anything to do with the shape of the actual cone, btw...

    very well said...maybe his ears were not trained to listen to 'sqaure' sound waves

    IH8RICE, I take it you don't like Nike, Chevrolet or Levi because they are 'mainstream' as well??

    Well, it's safe to say, if you fried the coils, it had nothing to do with the woofers capabilities- rather the users

    I think IH8RICE is a true noob......and you need to stop using words like "cone noise" because you have no idea what you are talking about. So stick to your noob words!!!!

    By playing volume master.

    Don't touch the gains. If you can't controll yourself, put duct tape over them.

    the noise your referring to "cone noise" may be called "Distortion".... and this word Distortion... will kill your subs... where was gain at on your "800 mono Ma amp" ???

    from my experience with MA amps, they are GROSSLY overrated. my first amp ever, a legacy 1800 watt max (LOL) outperformed an MAHK1997 "1200 watt RMS." even with the gain on the MA nearly all the way up

    just because a woofer and amp are 'supposed' to be a good match, doesn't mean they always are...there are too many other factors to how well, or how badl something will sound...and it's not always the product....just an FYI...

    Re: stuck on kicker and JL!!!!!

    alright im not a complete idiot when it comes to car audio all i know is that if i hit 155dB with my new Ma Audio stuff ill be happy and all this stuf is warrantied so im gonna run it hard and i could care less if i blow the stuff up. and i do know that gains on an amp shouldnt go over half so mine where between quarter and half, like i said before its my opinion that the kickers i had sounded like **** and that was probably from the amp i had but its gone now and if i get 155 with the new stuff ill be happy.
