It looks disappointing like the 06+ RE XXX. Couldn't have used one big motor and one big magnet? Is there less efficiency in a huge motor vs two smaller? Specs? Efficiency? How is the price not worth mentioning, because you can't afford? Couldn't have made those screw holes bigger? Looks like an up-fire only sub.

just like many other subwoofers that cost half of this one?

As far as I am concearned the idea is not a very good one... I'll stick with single motor designs...

looks like a sick sub for a high power custom install.
i dont think i would rely on them for the long run.especially with spl. i can see rivet/bolt problems coming form them trying hold that much weight dispersed over that long of length.

but it sure looks sweet.

that's probably one of the most in convenient subs I have seen
for making a sleek looking install..
what's the mounting depth on that thing......3 feet ??? LOL

with a 4K power handling the SQ can't be that great

i would not.. look nice .. however i would install them if i was using them just for show.. not spl

I will change my mind once i them in rides.. as for the price tag i get 4 subs almost and if i got 2 . . a 500.1 to burp them with and still be loud.. im not being cocky just saying thats all.

I think Meade has a market because of who he is ... I don't think THIS is necessarily the market ... I think he almost needs to come up with a "Light" version of this, for all the people that want to be like Meade (and think they are) ...

But he can definitely sell ice in Nunavut ...
