the SSA Icons are awsome sounding even at the lowest volume levels
I have tested these subs with over 3x the rated RMS and they stay
crystal clear thru all power levels
the four 10" Icons I was running were just jaw dropping
143.6db @ 10hz and peaked at 147db @ 27hz with four 10" Icons on 3200w rms
really insane flat response in my Hybrid Horn to...only a 3DB variance
from 10hz up to the 63hx x-over point

the new Xcons hit like a mother fkr but I can't give an honest opinion
untill I'm done testing them but WOW!!...
even in the undersized chambers (test box #1 is 3.50cf3 per 15" sub)
I may have to pull two subs out and go with two....they are wrecking my minivan...LOL

Thats what im wondering ? Will they be able to beat Image Dynamics IDMAX 12's ?

Would any of these two subs get louder then my current kickers ? With a bigger amp off course.

Kicker subs do not belong in the same sentence as SQ
