    For the price I give these 5 stars and for an audiophile tweeter I would give them at least 4 stars. Doing mild tuning still and these just get better and better with mild boosts and cuts (.2 db here and there) crossed over at 3750 Hz in kick panels powered off 2 channels of a Zapco Z-150.6. Brings up 20k and does not fluster and is EXTREMELY tunable. I have had SEVERAL other tweeters from Hertz, CDT, Image Dynamics and so far these are the best.

    So after 4 months of waiting I finally revived these baby's. It's such a relief and a long wait coming lol. Can't wait to pick up a taramps 8k to push these. And build my box also. These things are super heavy and beffy and beautiful. Really stiff. unfortunately i didnt didn't receive my tshirt or any stickers for that matter that's a bummer I was looking forward to that sick black shirt. And I took out the wooden things that help keep the sub protected during shipping.

    It's a hardcore full tilt 22 watts rms on the front right channel for the right tweet & about the same for the left tweet which is ran off the front left channel. It was about to storm that day with high winds and random cracks of thunder in the near background. The pressure was on to get the install done. I buckled down and knew it was my time to shine! In closing, once the radio powered on and some mild tweeking of some settings all of my efforts were outshined by the total awesomeness of the clarity that flowed from the SSA Evil1 silk dome tweeters. Was truely an epic moment that brought smiles from ear to ear.

    First kitchen knife and first damasus, made from 1095 and 15n20 steel. Lots of hammer swinging on that piece. Once the power hammer is up and running it should go much quicker for him.

    That is the ORIGINAL Terminator! Wayne used those in the Hearse, and they need a BIG enclosure. Email or call MTX and they will help you out. They're one of the best companies to deal with and they know their shit.

    8's are generally a somewhat lackluster sub size. Whenever they can be avoided I would try. I feel the same about 10's yet I am running a pair of 10's in my truck so the install defines this. Before doing anything I would figure out exactly what you can fit and plan for the future.

    Transpo regulator. The blue one. If your only running 1 secondary alt then the transpo will be just fine. My yukon is setup with triple alts. 1 stock and 2 for the system. I still only run it at 14.8 but i love not having my truck and my system on the same lifeline.

    I haven't abandoned this thread or gave up yet. Been messing with the settings the past few days. I have ended up pushing my tweeters down to 4k and mids down to 63hz. Cut the very high end frequencies by 1 and the front stage is a lot clearer/audible now. Maybe a little time alignment will help things along but i would say im not sure where to start. As far as the sub goes, i'm still listening and trying to figure things out. When keeping things at moderate volume I notice no distortion or any muddiness regardless of music choice.I just may not have much output on some songs at medium to moderate listening levels. However i'm still trying to find some songs that don't sound the best or bring out the muddiness. I have noticed that anything from mid 30s to low 60s sounds fine even when cranked. Anything below 30 or above 60 sometimes muddies up a little at higher volumes. Im thinking the sub/enclosure just isnt up to the frequencies beyond/nbelow the 30-60hz range on the the wattage im pushing. High 40s seem to be its peak and low 30s sound ok just not as much output. I plan to keep listening and compile songs that dont sound the best and songs that do to compare there frequencies/bass lines. I'm hoping this will give me a better understanding of what the sub likes and doesn't like with its current enclosure.

    It could in the 80's, not so much today...although there are pieces of garbage for amps that will easily prove my statement wrong.

    If I summarize and say simple is better I think we are on the same page, although it is possible to build reliably at higher power levels. Exactly what tuners have been doing for a long time. Take a motor, add boost, blow motor, rebuild with something beefier and try again. No matter how you spin it at some power level things fail, but finding what fails allows you to then build beyond that. The only manufacturers can learn this is to try it. Regrettably this means that we the consumers are now more beta testers than ever. Moving to the category of I don't want a first generation of anything. It used to just be a first year, but now it is a complete generation. Good example of power building is just looking in my garage. My 600cc snowmobile that stock is around 120hp is sitting well over 155hp now. No forced induction and a 30% gain. I don't expect to still be able to get 10,000 miles from it before rebuilding, but 5k is absolutely no problem. At that point I'll just drop in some fresh pistons as they are what tends to go. Found the weak link and dealt with it. Does cost me $80/piston though. Long term I am fine with the downsizing AS LONG as there are still options for the enthusiast cars. A strung out 4 banger with no room to grow doesn't work for me as manufacturers typically choose to release things with 30-40% less power than they should have.

    It sounds like the new sub amp created a ground loop sending stray noise interfering with your rca's. With the filter you are now isolating the stray signal (noise).

    The lack of air will squash your midbass. The SSA driver should have more potential there, but won't like being squashed. Venting into the hood would help a TON. I'd personally definitely try with a single set first.

    This is where my current HEX are now. I was hoping I could mount one set here. And perhaps building enclosure for another mid. Placing it under the dash next to the console. But I don't know if it would work well to be in different enclosures

    Input level=gains looks like its maxed out. Bass boost looks like its maxed out. Subsonic around 40? Headuniy settings? Dono what box is or tuned to? You would have done better if you would have turned everything to the left. Turn everything Down before you blow that sub. Leave your low pass filter where it is. Are you a troll really ? Nothing on here is correct It's like you saw Jonathan pryce t-shirt that says turn everything to right and you did.

    you can run a 6k amp on this sub and it'll handle it. who hooked up your equiptment? what amp, how's it wired? my 1st guess is, it sounds like you put the gain at max setting and possibly max bass boost which is 1000% wrong.

    We will be here. Keep playing. The closer you listen and the more you pay attention the more you will learn. Makes talking about what you want to improve all that much easier.

    I am super impressed with the crystal clear pin drop clarity from these tweets. Even on 22rms from a head unit they really fill the high end paired with the evil 6.5's. The guy I installed these for, his exact expression was "holy sh*t those sound f'n amazing. I'm glad you talked me into getting these!" I smiled and said "Told you, they don't make crap, they really pay attention to design."

    Great info. I think im gonna get this amp http://www.woofersetc.com/st-4x-p-zapco-4-channel-480w-rms-class-ab-amplifier.html?gclid=CjwKEAjwutXIBRDV7-SDvdiNsUoSJACIlTqlDxkaULKIFdgThoiwA3ulUcyWIbcgsE3hLwMK6J06zBoC3dXw_wcB To match my amp for my icons. And sell the hex set.. and get ssa. Can i run 2 sets of mids and one set of tweets with that set up? If i feel like i need more than one set of mids?

    And the 240SX tires and rims have been selected by Kyle and ready to install!!! "Here they are! My Volk Racing TE37SLs for the #240SX. I love the timeless look of these wheels. They're forged alloys, super lightweight and have an awesome dark grey finish on the spokes. Took about 2 months to order from Japan 17 X 9" with a +22 offset. They should fit nicely. I have center caps for them too. Will be getting them fitted to the car next week!"

    As long as their input impedance is the same and they are split evenly it should be that way. Whatever the difference is easily adjusted with the gain knob anyways

    I finally got all my door and base trim done in the house this week!!! And also got the daughters subwoofa' and stereo in! It is a 15" Dcon! And the ride! She turned 16 in January, and got it stuck 4X'ing day one. Thus why she is manually cleaning it. LOL
