Well, like I thought! The 18 didn't last long! oh well, on to the next.
I did however get some good footage before the lose of another woofer.
I will be having this one reconed within the next two months for turkey drag!

Hey guys, just a little updat. I have been crazy busy with work. Although I work a lot, it's been slow. So no money's. I'm also going to have to put the build on the back burner for a little while. Last night my wife hit a deer on her way home from work in our rsx. It's not that bad, but it's gonna be a lot. Bumper, bumper cover headlight, fender, and drivers door skin.

Hey all, I've found a woofer I want to buy. Problem is, is that it's over a grand for one.

This is the Audio Element Designs SPX.15, it weighs over 130 POUNDS! It has a rating of 5k rms 8k daily and a nominal burp of 20k.
they are very expensive in my eyes unproved. We have already contacted them and got a response in less than 24 hours. Really cool people! When I can afford one of there 18s I may buy one for experiment.
They come with a quad stack motor (don't yet know what weight per)
They also come with a 4in 8 layer aluminum voice coil, its a quad coil wired to a dual to handle extreme heat and abuse.
It also has a 9 1'2 in spider seat that is to accommodate for 4in of throw from pole to pole! CRAZY!
The 21 in woofer has 5in of throw!
