    Denim and I have been thinking about ways to get more traffic back to the forum, and have a few ideas about contests, like a classifieds contest, were we would pick a random user every month for a prize, but I am sure you guys have some great ideas for contests.... lets come up with a great idea, and get this place back on top of the forum game, once again...

    I want to extend a thanks to the SSA forum members that have been with us for a while and have supported my expansion of the SSA product offerings. 10 years ago it started with the SSA Icon 12D2, and we have slowly expanded from there. After years of just sub woofers, I was finally able to move into smaller speakers. Our latest offering is the Evil6.5 mid. All that being said, I need to take care of the people who are apart of the SSA family first. So to our SSA forum members, if you want to try out our new Evil6.5, I will place a $10 SSA Store credit on your SSA Store account for each SSA Evil6.5 you want to order. This is available to SSA forum members with an SSA Store account until September 15th, 2016. _________________________________________________________________________ All you have to do is follow the below example and post in this topic: SSA Store account email address: jimmystew@hotmail.com Number of Evil6.5's: 2

    A few years late, but we are finally getting a very nice tweeter going that is worthy of being a part of the SSA line. The pictures below show the prototypes, they are really attractive in person and will, in production form, bare the SSA logo. See the attached files for the 4 and 8 ohm versions. They are quite smooth to my ear (aka not super bright like some metal dome tweets can be) and blend well with the Evil6.5's (vital to the design). These are not a PA style, 'screamy' tweet, these are meant for sound quality first and foremost. Possible future home audio plans. Pricing is not set just yet. These will be sold as a pair. Some quick points of info: 28mm Silk Dome, Large Roll Surround Aluminum Faceplace and Housing Sound Transparent Grill Low Fs. for flexibility in both Home & Car Neo Motor with Shallow non-Resonant Chamber 61.9mm (2.44") dia. flange, 21.5mm (.85") depth 65 watts rms

    Haha WOW I just remembered that I posted this years ago and had to update! Well the bad news is that I ended up getting all of the way up to 535 pounds a few years ago...the good news is that I am currently 315 pounds and steadily losing! I hope that everyone is doing well! I truly miss my SSA family!

    A 110lb sub will give you a hernia? That's cute.

    As the parent of a child with special needs, I assure you that had you said this in front of me you would have way less teeth. You may or may not beat my ass but regardless you would regret the garbage ever leaving your mouth. Think about what you say before you say it! You are a total disruption not only to this forum but as a human being as well. Good day sir!

    Last chance, wrong place to be making insults which include making fun of handicapped children. Maybe you should read your posts before you type and negatively react to every post in response to you. You are not getting your original point across the first time because you do not take the time to proof read, make changes/correct your post/point, and then click the submit reply.

    Aaron, my apologies in advance Sir ... Billy Jack, It's been fun brother, but You have my vote for the largest fucking troll in the internet. Not to mention ... A stupid one at that. I rarely see someone on a audio forum act like a whiny ass, screaming little bitch like you do when something does not go your way. Grow a pair dude !!! I have NEVER seen anyone carry on like you do on this forum. Honestly, you're a fucking idiot. You best be glad that Aaron and Mark never made me a moderator on this forum. I'd make it my weekly duty to come on here and ban you just so I wouldn't have to read your bull shit over, and over, and over, and over, and over again. Fucking ridiculous. I'll probably get a vacation for making this post but Fuck it, this need to be said. Please, leave people alone and start worrying about your own projects and show (not type) that you actually do know something about Car Audio. Mods on here can be jerks here at times, but do have a common goal of helping people educate themselves about car audio. /Rant ... I'm going to bed.

    I will say this ... (LOL Sean, had to ...) I hardly ever run larger than a 10" driver in my setups. But I have had 4 15s in one of my ground pounders. Now after talking to Mark and Aaron personally at show and events, and basically demoing SEVERAL different drivers, If I ever went stupid and built me another ground pounder, I promised Aaron that I would be ordering SSA product s for that ride. Performance along with ownership and customer service is more than enough to run their equipment. So if I was you, I'd order SSA and call it a day brother. You won't be disappointed.

    I will make an official announcement when production is near done, so please hold off on the flood of questions until then. Attached is a photo of the prototypes (MEANING THEY ARE HOUSE SAMPLE MATERIAL AND NOT THE PRODUCTION COLORS, THINK CAR PROTOTYPES WITH WEIRD PAINT JOBS) I have been testing with our custom heat sink. Loads of surface area so heat is not an issue under normal loads. Starting out with a VERY sturdy mono block and strong 4 channel.

    There are two things I have never had since I got "serious" into car audio. A 10" sub, or a decent dual sub setup. So this is my build for two 10" xcons! Im super excited, they should be finished building and arriving soon, I hope. I am fitting the maximum dimensions of my trunk while still being able to fold up the stock floor and access the spare tire. I was left with 3.11 internal cubic feet without sub, bracing, 45s, or port displacement. This is firing into the car, so I also needed the subs and port to be on the same face. The triangle port is unconventional but takes up less volume than a typical slot port inside the box and also has less port wall surface area, so I'm hoping it works out. That angle took some wizardry to figure out, and it still came out a little crooked but oh well. The "45s" are little pine cove trim pieces, figured this is the best I can do without sacrificing internal volume. I used minimal bracing but it should be enough, and undercoated everything with two cans, I honestly dont think it does anything but I like to do it on my boxes. it gives a solid completed look to the inside of the box and its extra leak insurance. Final volume and tuning should be 2.4 cubes at 31 hz with 25 sq in port area. The box is a little too small and the port is a little too small, but its all the space I have. Got some black base down and some custom copper orange pearl, trying my best to match the faceplate of my Crecendo BC3500. All thats left is to carpet it with black felt, wire the drivers in, and go to town!

    I've stayed out of this until now. This is ridiculous. PERIOD. I understand the rep feature is in place because it's favorable on other types of social media and that is the ONLY reason the software provider has coded it into the forum. Here it serves absolutely NO purpose other than to stir shit. Nothing else. Most people here, come here for no BS, and to get THE best advice. We don't need a rep system to alert people of bullshit or bullshitters. They are easily and readily seen and called out. Billy Jack,I am going to give you some advice. I was once in your shoes, in fact you may be able to find some of my initial posts from when I first joined here to prove it. Perception is reality. You may think you are right, you may FEEL you are right. You may be right. . . . BUT when everyone else perceives you as wrong, you are wrong. You talk about M5's comments on subjective topics. Unfortunately, it is your own subjectivity which denies you the ability to look at things objectively and see things from an open mind perspective. You may be passionate, you my be educated, you may be correct, you may even be one hell of a cool guy, but you carry yourself all wrong, and for that reason, you have ZERO credibility. Aaron, this is your forum,and you do as you please, but the rep system, IMO, is childish and not needed here. I will comment no further.

    Ohio's first post never specified the number of 12s that would be used. You assume a pair. Why ?? 4 12s in a wall tuned around 40 would hair trick easily on adequate power.

    Sorry, I have been leaking little bits here and there. It has been a very long (a year) process to get these off the ground. Because these buggers are NOT a basic overhung 1" or 1.5" coil, it took time to get parts and get the design right. Not to mention some changes at the factory that caused a number of delays. Ok, so these are a copper coil, shorting ring, solid pole, phase plug, underhung design. In final testing, they are a very very clean, warm sound. They were right at home in an IB rig that Neal helped out on big time, so dropping into an average car door is excellent. The Evil6.5's have push terminals that are good for 10 gauge wire. Nomex spiders, so they will able take the same long term abuse that the SSA subs are known for. Also, the glass fiber cones that were available, performed a little better than the poly cones in testing. I will probably be setting these at 120-150rms. Specs are below, on the bottom right. Follow the green slope for the production model. I had put together a slightly different model to see what combination of aspects were the best performing for our goals, so ignore the purple slope and specs on the left.

    Calling out other people just to spite them in threads they're not even involved in? Opinions and personal experiences are understandable, but that does not make it scientifically accurate, or true. When you're more concerned with your ego than betterment of the hobby/industry, it does the entire community a disservice. Please, humble yourself and be part of the solution, quit feeding into the bs. I've seen you post useful things, continue to focus on that, but please ask yourself before posting: Is this a biased opinion? Am I responding from ego? Do I have scientific data to back this up? Can what I wrote be taken the wrong way?

    So there I was ... Tied up to her bed !!! had ................ Awh shit, what forum am i on here ?? Dang audio forum. OK Got these out of the closet the other day to clean them up and kinda ponder some ideas on where to mount them. Those fins take forever to clean !!! Maybe one day I can get these installed in the F-150 !!! As you can see, I had A LOT of cleaning to do on these. Thats, weird. They look blue in these pics. But I assure you, they are PURPLE !!! Maybe it's the lighting on my shitty phone. For those on the other thread looking for small footprint, very dynamic monsters ??? Might want to check these out !!! Little pricey, but WELL worth it when it comes to power, clarity, dynamics, and headroom !!! I wouldn't run anything else. Hopefully I can get back to this project soon !!! Thank you SSA

    I haven't had the DSLR out too much in 2016. Hopefully 2017 will give me more time for that!

    Gorgeous. If they perform like they look they should take the active audience by storm. With no a priori measurement details and only seeing the plot, I think Aaron's response is conservative. The response curve looks easily adaptable to both almost on and off axis response in car. Obviously nothing will beat a really small diaphragm for off axis response, but the flexibility of such a low Fs will more than counteract that in more than 90% of installs. The last thing I need is another set of tweeters...but pretty sure my curiosity won't be squelched until I own a pair.

    Ok, it appears I need to step in here. Sean is a member of the forums. He contributed to the upgraded forum member ships and is part of the tech support team due to his vast experience and knowledge over the years from the work he has done and his background. That being said, Sean is NOT part of Sound Solutions Audio Inc. He does not gain anything from suggesting our items. I know he has an Xcon, which means he can speak from experience on how well it performs. He didn't get some hook up or get paid for it etc. Please do not make any equivalence between SSA and SMD. Also, I don't consider us (SSA) to be an SPL brand. If oyu have any specific SSA questions, I am the one to ask. Lastly, as for ZED, I don't think I can believe that. Stephen never compromises on his amps. I have known him for many years, and that is not at all like him. I personally have 12 ZED made amplifiers, from different lines, brands, and across many years in my collection and not one of them show any signs of what you are talking about.
