    As it goes SSA brings out another speaker and my wife bought me some. She does not realize my audio addiction, but I do have a corner in the garage with lots of goodies. This time around I am going to be running the new Demon sub, 4 to be exact in a sealed box 26"x38"x10.5" for a total after all displacments 4.10 cubes. These will be powered with the SSA IC2200.1 running @ .5 ohm, never have too much power. Here is the line up with an OG Dcon.

    So I ended up ordering some drivers after talking to an old friend who owned a shop many years ago. I went with SWS 12s from Earthquake. Hopefully I can get an enclosure fabbed up next weekend and give them a thrashing, but pics will have to suffice for now. Here they are next to the Evil mids. identical mounting depths. And next to an OG Gcon12

    The people in any job who have been just hanging around and barely skating by will always react in a negative manner when someone competent comes in. If they can drag you down and affect your ability then their lackings become less readily apparent. Stay the course. Continue to excel, and they'll be given two choices: pick up their laces or vacate for new competent workers. That ball is in their court, it's not your fault if they drop it. All that being said, congrats on the success, I'm sure you'll pull through and shine.

    I started some spring cleaning today and noticed the mids on my old Baby Advent IIs had blown out the surrounds, so I figured I'd throw the Evil 6.5s in their place and have some fun. Now, these are in a simple bass reflex at 9.1L. There's a simple 1st order crossover running up to 6K, so the woofer is wide open down low and starts rolling 6dB at 6K. It's a really simple design. These are being powered by an old Pioneer Elite receiver rated at 40WPC at 6 ohms. Standing DCR on them was 7.12, so we're in business. Now, I didn't expect much as this was just a WTF experiment. I fired them up and was immediately blown away with the midrange. It's generic, but damn, I've not had a driver with midrange detail like this aside from the Revelators. Now, IIRC, I paid $150-$180 PER DRIVER for those 15 or so years ago. Obviously the Evil 6.5 is not in that league money-wise, but my ears don't distinguish price, just sound. The midrange is phenomenal. I believe these are marketed as midbass drivers. IMO, that's misleading. I had some trouble with these down low even in these small enclosures. The drivers reached their mechanical limits at 20 watts right around 58 Hz. I cut the EQ from that point on and they shined on and took all 40 watts without issue. This may be a problem for some, but this is right about where I have subs taking over. This driver is seeming to be the perfect fit for me. I have decided to vent them in-car, so this little tests just confirms what I've suspected. I'll gain even more cone control with the vented enclosure, so I don't see the mechanical limitations being relevant at all. They'll be safely crossed above that point any ways. But just note, if you're running these in a door without the benefit of the vent or crossover, don't get crazy! Another thing to note is the efficiency. I had trouble with the volume control on the Pioneer. The mylar tweeters in the Advents are known for their efficiency, and the Evil 6.5s hung right in there with them. There was really no need to run more than 20 watts here. I realize the automotive environment is a different beast, but these things are loud, EASILY! Off-axis response came with negligible difference to my ears, but those phase caps really liven up the experience on-axis. It's like frosting on a brownie! Just lovely! I'm going to play with these some more in the Advent enclosures, but I can't wait to get them in the truck! I'll leave this with a couple simple pics. Here's one of the bad woofers. Time for a change. And here they are with the Evils.

    Also going to start building a sealed box for 4 12" demons. All cutting will be outside of course.

    The guy who hired me is quitting. He is just starting his second competition for fitness phisique so I think he is going down that path.... Anyway, job opening! Woohoo! Guess who has 2 thumbs and emailed the VP immediately? ... the VP who called me to offer me the department I have now after 8 days and an industry reps "good word". I just hope I went agressive enougn. "Before I tell you why I'm perfect for th manager position, let me thank you...." I also dropped that I added $600 in juice to a $1100 sale and trained the team here my technique. Wish me luck you beautiful bastards!

    As much as I love the Ecoboost engines, the direct injection turns me away. The Coyote is the choice for me. It's easier, cheaper, sounds better, ultimately will make more power and they'll go for a couple hundred K with just normal maintenance. The Ecoboost will need several combustion chamber cleanings in the same time and possibly even more maintenance. You'll already be buying used also, so there's no telling how it's been treated. The V8 is just the better bet IMO. Don't sleep on the 6.2 either. WONDERFUL engine, but I don't think they put it in many 150s. It's thirsty though. Don't forget to check Tundras. Not sure if you like them, but if I had real truck money, that's what I'm buying.

    Gainesville was beautiful. As was the college as well. She was just not feeling it. If I had to guess, Ole miss will probably be the pick if it’s one that direction. Or Georgia for their double dawg program. Which is structured to allow completion of eight years of education in six.
