I just clicked, and checked these out over on ssa.com. Wasn't on but for a few seconds, and got into a chat with ole @denim himself, I really like that kind of customer service. When ever I just want to try something different than my current set-up, I will be taking a hard look at ssa, for sure.

What size coil is in that subwoofer Denim? I would assume the RMS rating is conservative?
3" copper coil, yes conservatively rated.

interesting.... i wonder how this sub would sound compared to my Fi SSD...would it dig deeper
Would only be able to answer that with an educated reply from a back to back test in the same install.

Do they still use USA voice coil/steel ? I was told they aren't made in Vegas anymore (Fi was going to focus on there brand only).

Not made in Vegas anymore. Proven build house, the F8L's track record shows they are solid. Copper coils.

will these new recones fit older icon motors/baskets???
They will fit, but no idea how well they will work as totally different motor design, so I do not suggest it.

Steel voice coils? Seriously bro
You numbnuts ! I was referring to steel for the motor (the previous SSA subs where machined in house using USA steel). I was asking denim if both the steel and voice coil are still done stateside
