those speakers are 100lbs each, and with dbl 3/4" mdf, thats easily almost the weight of two of those speakers, thats crazy. you might have to do some engine mods to keep the car running well. lol

what kind of amp are you using for those? if i remember right those are made for sound off competition, so they'll be loud but probably not have too much SQ. I've been curious as to how they sound though, keep me updated.

Did you build that box yourself? how much internal volume per sub is there and how much port area? shits gonna be loud...
Actually these are not going in my car, they are at the shop I work at. One of the installers built the vented box. Believe it or not that box is going to replace the back seat in a '73 Impala 2 door on some 23's! Yep, it's a local drug dealer! He got busted about 2 months ago when we were almost halfway through with the car, so now it is on stand-still but he paid up 7k on the setup..The whole deal was gonna be around 15k after it's all finished. We are using 4 of the Kicker KX1200.1 amps on each sub..That's roughly around 5800-6000 watts per sub! 2 high output Ohio Generator alternators, 4 strands of 0 ga wire, 6 batteries,1500 in dynamat, 2 big 4 channel kx800.4 amps on the component sets, some screens, a good bit of fiberglass etc...

The cones are "field-repairable" which means you can remove the entire cone/spider/voice coil assembly at once and drop a new one in..Cool stuff..

BMWL2, how well does that PA amp work? Ive heard they arent very good from some people and they are from others. Whats yours been like?
I like mine.. I always thought PA was junk the way people would talk about it and because it didnt have a prestigious name. It can take serious abuse and doesnt get hot. For the price of it ya cant beat it. It is an 1100w at 2ohms and can go to 1800 at 1ohm.

Yeah one of our installers is into MMATS, he has always been into them, but we have never thought about picking them up...
