My friend has these original spl 160 15 inch subs, never been reconed or abused. He said he may sell them to me. My question is are they worth anything being so old. Im sure they could be reconed if needed but now they are mint and have been in his show truck since 1995. It is an offroad show truck not stereo so they havent been hurt. I have heard that the old soundstream stuff is good and his are loud. Any one have any expirience with these and what would they compare to in todays subs? I m thinkin like AQ sdc 2.5 15's maybe? thanks for the input.

i used to have 2 of them in a 4th order box ported through the rear deck of an 89 acura legend power by a zapco competition series amp that put out 900rms. let me tell for just 900w they were loud as hell. sitting in the car with the volume up hurts you our ears and when you talk it is like talking into a fan blowing. your voice will crack. if you were wearing glasses the glasses would bounce on your face. those were badass subs.

well i dont think i could get them for less than 150 for the pair. he hit 150 sealed on a soundstream 1000 amp and the subs are in a regular cab toyota 4x4 with the back glass removed and the subs sitting right behind the driver and passengers head. It is loud, but if aq 2.5's would stomp them, i probly wont mess with them. I just thought for about 150 for 2 15's might be a good deal. The baskets look just like the older DD 9500'S. black 4 spoke with crome on the motors.

I was on the internet in 1988 and I know these woofers didn't exist then.

Def not a TL then.....I believe they are supposed to be very efficient drivers, everything was a bit different years ago
