Keep in mind, Sundown is the king of conservative ratings. Their SA line of subs have been been kippel tested to take a clean 1800 watts RMS despite their 600 RMS rating.

Their NightShade's are well renowned for breaking many SPL records (and windshields). I am speculating that these Z's out perform LMS 5400.

nyt and I were talking yesterday on IRC (irc.efnet.org in #av ). We speculated that maybe these out perform the LMS 5400s.. What if? And we were kidding about him replacing all of his LMS 5400s with these guys.. I guess we will soon find out.

Those surrounds could be just the ticket for PR's.

Looks like you'd only need half as many.

I remember bringing up such a thing back when the HST18 was shown here. I sure hope they consider building some PR's with those. Oh! And a 24" version.

Not a chance, LMS kill it in ported, these are better in sealed. I'm not excursion limited. LMS are pure win for my setup.

Also, "#a/v" stupid hash tags

The only pics I see from the website are of 12's... the 15's and 18's just say "Image Coming Soon".

more interesting is found at the bottom of the page:

Xmax = ~40mm one-way by 70% BL (stock coil)
RMS Power = ~2500-watts (varies based on configuration)

It's for 'wall hung dude', and no, I don't need any help to 'hook-up'.... sheesh ... dirty minds around these parts....

These surrounds are pretty necessary. take the LMS ultra for example. It's surround limits it to just over 30mm of xmax. The claimed figures are so bogus its disgusting. I thought they'd address this, but never did. At least I'm using them in a situation I'm not xmax limited anymore with the ported enclosure, and they're superb for that, but I was pissed at the time with the sealed boxes.

when those subs are "perculat'n like craaaaaa-zy" (about the 1:30 mark or so) is the camera mic distorting the heck out what is coming out of the subs or are they well over 100% distortion at that point?

Talking to Jacob he said he could get the 18's basket to approach about 5.5" P-P for Mechanical. Nice to see you can beat the crud out of these subs and they keep on going.

And after checking out a custom 15" N V3 with a .9 Le I was EXTREMELY impressed with their custom builds. He stated he could get the Le down to about .3 with a 4 layer instead of the 8 layer they used. Great products I think and I cant wait to get my own pair of subs from them.

I dont know why but I seem to really like watching some of these excursion videos Jacob and others keep making. Bosso's, Notnyt's, Nicks and Jacobs are all fun to watch. PLUS the people I mentioned dont have distorting mic's with the videos.

Thanks again for sharing this thread Notnyt.

The site list it as an 18", but after looking at Sundown's site, it does look like the 12".

You've been wanting to get into some of these for a while now. Glad you get the chance, and with such a nice number.

These, the HST, SP4, and UXL all model very very close in 4 cubes sealed. Within a DB or two if I remember right, but it's been a while since I looked.
