    Introducing the all new SSA F8L 8" Subwoofer.

    I ordered a box design from the SSA store when I bought my XCONN. I told them exactly what I wanted, gave them the max dimensions and they designed it for me. The cut sheet was super helpful, everything was clear and easy to understand, but most of all, the sub sounds great in that box.

    Stetsom STX2436

    It was $200, controlled by Bluetooth, and tiny. I'd have preferred processing for the sub and 31 bands of EQ but couldn't find anything that didn't need a PC or cost under $400. If I'd run active in the past and/or had a PC I probably would have gone with a Mini DSP, but this was my first time going active and needed to keep it simple. I'm kinda bummed that Soundstream and PPI stopped making their $200 processors.

    This post is 8 years old, I'm surprised the guy is still in business...

    I've got a pair, but haven't done the install yet (maybe Thanksgiving week). Welcome to THE forum.
  7. If you have component sets, they come with passive crossovers. You'd run the amps full range into the crossover networks or set the high pass filter at 80 or 100 HZ to protect the component speakers from playing sub frequencies. If you want to run active (i.e. not using the passive crossovers) you've got a lot of work ahead of you...
  8. We are going to need a lot more information... What component set do you have? What amp? Etc.
  9. Yes please, I've had an XCON recone on order for several weeks now.

    XCON recone?

    I placed an order for an XCON 10" recone on August 4th. I originally bought the driver from SSA so I'm well aquatinted with the waiting game, but I haven't heard anything yet. I left a message 2 weeks ago and haven't gotten a reply. Is everything okay at the build house? Can I get some kind of ETA? Love you guys and thanks.

    XCON recone?

    Thanks for the update! I'm using an old Kenwood 10" in a shallow mount truck box so I'm not completely without bass.

    Who does box designs?$$$

    I paid for a box design from the SSA store when I ordered my XCONN. I'm very happy with the decision.

    I'm guessing that sub will take about 250-300 watts RMS, but you'll need an enclosure (box) in addition to the amp and wires. The box is a huge deal, make sure you do tons of research to build a proper one or it will not sound good.
  14. I'm adding a second battery and want/need to get a battery isolator. The battery is an XS XP750 AGM Battery Power Cell and I'm getting it because I have a 160 amp alternator, NVX JAD 800.4 and Rockford Fosgate T-1500bd. That RF amp pulls 180 amps max (I don't typically listen to sine waves) so I need a 200 amp isolator, correct? Would there be any harm getting the 500 amp isolator because (believe it or not) I can find them cheaper (and in stock) than the 200 amp models.

    Battery Isolator

    I was looking at the NVX models, I've never used an isolator but did some basic research. The NVX appear to be a diode based and not solenoid based. I don't mind a .4-.7 drop in voltage, I'm not competing and should be fine with a 160 amp alternator and strong primary battery. Oh, I'll be running the RF at 2 ohms so it won't be putting out more than 1200 watts RMS.

    How much CLD/CCF/MLV for my car?

    I come on this site because I want honest information about all things car audio. I am NOT interested in manufacturers pimping their wares, making outrageous claims, and saying anything just to sell more products. I'm sure the owners of BOSS audio tell their customers that their amps CAN do 5000 watts. Thank you M5, no thank you Second Skin.

    Decal shipping price

    I bought my fuse holder with the Evil mids and I bought the polo shirt and remote wire when the Evil tweeters were put out for preorder.

    Decal shipping price

    I've had the same issue trying to order fuses and wire. I just waited until I "needed" more gear that totaled over $100 so I could get free shipping on everything.

    2 8s or 1 10?

    I love my XCON 10"!

    SSA Evil 1 (first SSA tweeter)

    Just ordered mine! Love the option to buy them in 8 ohm. I'm running an NVX JAD800.4 and feel a lot safer running the tweets with less power because this will be my first active set-up.

    6.5 evil to replace diamond HEX 6.5

    The more headroom, the better. 100 or 150 watts per channel would be awesome. If you're going the miniDSP route you can try the NVX amps from the SSA store. They're 150 watts X 4 which will be plenty for Evil Mids and Tweets (when they come out). I bought my NVX second hand and I'm waiting for the evil tweets to come out so I don't have experience with it yet, but it's gotten good reviews and it's priced well. In addition NVX makes a 1200 watt mono amp- I know you wanted matching amps for ascetics. http://store.soundsolutionsaudio.com/products/nvx-jad800-4-amplifier.html

    If you get the 80-PRS, shouldn't going active be a lot easier? Welcome back by the way!

    Adding second icon amp upgrade question

    Can you add a second battery and get the 2000 watt amp?

    Such a cool car, totally blank canvas. It'd be awesome if you could do some horn loaded compression drivers.

    Wanting to upgrade. Icon to x-zcon

    Going from a 1200 watt amp to a 1650 watt amp will not make it noticeably louder. Obviously going from a 12" to a 15" WILL make it noticeably louder provided the 15 is in a properly designed and constructed box. I LOVE my XCON but haven't heard the ICON or ZXON to be able to make a comparison.
