If you go the website in fine print at the bottom of the product page for the SSDv4 it says
"Due to COVID-19 all orders can have up to 45 business days lead time"
They are on sale right now for 24% off so...

Fi told me flat out on Facebook (fyi that is the best place to contact them at) 8-9 weeks. Having said that I ordered my two Xv3's last Monday and got the email saying they had just started the build on them, then they test them out for a few days then ship them. The build time and test time can take up to a month depending on the back load of orders they have and they are slammed. Figure the 8-9 weeks they told me and hope for the best.

I want to get one SSDv4 12” but not sure if I’ll like the sound of sealed or ported, with that said, which suspension should I go with (soft or stiff suspension)?

Saz1000 so should I go single SSDv4 1ohm or 2ohm (assuming dual 2ohm)?

If you are feeding it under rated the rms, then go with the soft suspension. If you are feeding it over the rated RMS, then, go with the stiff suspension.

@West1, I found out that my amp was too strong tonight. I guess that is better than too week. I figured 3K would be great for 2,400 rms subs. 4-8's at 600 rms each.

Ported with Fi and if you are only going to run a Saz 1000 then a single 12" then get a Xv3 with an extra spider in Dual 2 ohm and run it at 1ohm. Because those SSDV4's want power and it will not show its true potential with only 1000 watts or so. If you are going to upgrade to a 2k at some point then get the SSDV4.

Soft suspension (SFB1500) or sell the amp and get a Sundown SFB3000D with stiff suspension.

this is my thought process, buy the XV3 12” and if I end up upgrading electrical, I’ll have to dish out more than the current 100.00 difference to get the SSDv4, make sense?

looking at the Xv3, is there a sound difference between standard, dry or gloss dust cap or is it just aesthetics?

Aesthetics nothing more. If you go with the Xv3 then get the extra spider as it is free upgrade. I did 2 12" in dual 1ohm to run them at 1ohm and total with shipping was 488.

If you go to the SSDV4 then you need to go to a 2k, I would do the stiffer suspension along with big 3 upgrade and most likely a alternator of some sort if you don't have a high ouput. Those 2k SFB will do more then the 2k they are rated for and would be perfect for the SSDV4 the 3k is overkill on it. If I had bought those I was going to do two Cab-22 which is 2,200 watts at 1ohm, strap them and run said 2,200 to each subwoofer which would be perfect. As I already have one Cab-22 installed.

If you can fit a 15" Xv3 it is only 20 bucks more and the RMS is the same just a little bit bigger box is all.

I think you talked me into the Xv3, especially since I don’t want to upgrade electrical rn.

I have about 2.5 cubes of available space so either ported 12” or sealed 15”.

mom considering the 15” sealed since I’ve never had a sealed box.

You would be happier with a ported. Talk to buck about how much space a 15" roughly would take in a ported setup. If it is too much then do the 12" in a ported setup
