    Sundown SA-6.5CS Pre-Order !!!

    Sundown : Revisiting Component Sets (Mid-Level) - Car Audio Classifieds
    ** This thread tracks the development process **

    As with any pre-order delivery times are an ETA (estimated time of arrival) and are not a guarantee of the delivery date. DO NOT ORDER if you are not okay with possible delays on the delivery.

    That being said the ETA is middle of November 2012 on these.

    ----------

    Pre-Order Price : $155
    Regular Price : $199

    Pricing is shipped in continental 48 states. Contact us for a SH quote to AK or HI. !!! THIS IS FOR USA ONLY !!!

    To order get in touch with your favorite local or online dealer or send a Paypal in to us at sundownz@sundownaudio.com

    YOU MUST INCLUDE YOUR NAME AND ADDRESS. If these are both not included your payment will be refunded.

    ----------


    * Mids ready with frames and shims for assembly


    * Chromed back plate with logo etched in


    * Going down the line


    * Back of box has mid and tweeter measurements, response graphs, and midrange T/S specs


    * Front of box has feature highlights (yes I know I have an error on there -- too late to catch it!)


    * Tweeters ready to roll

    ----------

    Dimensions :



    ----------

    I will have some more pictures coming up soon as well as everything completely wraps up at the factory; currently just awaiting final packing and pick-up by my freight company.

    ----------

    The 60-watts PER SIDE rating is designed around 8-hours continuous testing at 20-20,000 Hz with the entire set connected (mid, tweeter, and crossover) -- with any smart usage of an HPF filter the power handling goes up quite a bit.

    Keep in mind that a power rating is only as good as the conditions it was made under :

    It takes 4x the excursion for each octave DOWN in response to maintain the same output level -- so assuming a brick wall HPF at 40 hz that is 4x less excursion right there than our rated power level With a decent x-over anywhere from 50-80 Hz you are on track to run significantly more power. I run two channels of a 200.4 on my set crossed at 50 Hz @ 24 dB -- any sane level of listening is just fine. Most folks will likely be crossing over @ 80 Hz and 100+ watts per side is no issue at all for *almost* any user.

    Also note MOST ratings you see on components are BOTH sides combined. I don't feel like that is an honest way to rate a set at all so I've done it differently. I also do not want to confuse everyone with an "official" conditional rating of "100-watts... well if you use X crossover at X dB per octave" -- so an absolutely worst case rating has been applied.

    Keep in mind it could end up higher than $199, too. I know Jacob's got a good grasp of the industry and how to competitively price, but this is his first set of SA components. If there's excessively low or high demand, that could affect the final retail.

    Jake,

    Any chance you can post the T/S parameters on this thread? Might get people to overlook the power handling.
