Default My real Opinions on the flxx fa

Ok i know you guys keep asking my real opinion and i never answer because well..... No one listens. So its here on record instead.
everyone knows i was with IAD for a bit. I left for reasons of my own not of the product itself.
And most know i go through companies like a fat kid goes through candy. The only 2 i have been with for a long amount of time has been audiotechnix for obvious reasons. And flxx.

First off ill start with the product itself and move on from there.

My first impressions were: Crap i hope these arent as bad as they seem(since the original threads got trolled with bs reviews)
kinda dinky but hey i paid 390 for four. obsidian couldnt and wouldnt come close to that. (not sayin obsidian is a bad product for the price) Once i actually recieved them i was in awe. They were alot more stout than the pictured lead on. The cone and dustcap were pretty tough (i dropped a ruler on one cone and didnt make it through at all) The motor looked decent for the size and price. moving on to performance.

The very first time i herd them was when i had the wall unsealed. And i must say. They werent That bad. I wasnt impressed but i wasnt let down for a >100$ woofer. Once i got the wall sealed i was like a maniac going around in circles. I had finally gotten impressed. And for the box design i did i was even more impressed at the numbers i have gotten- [email protected] with 144sq in of port. I can do a 50.6 on the dash on any givin day now. Thats door open.
I have been told it feels like a 52 by some upstanding people. Now power wise 600 seems conservative at times. But thats about all they can take and sound clean. I put one on the bb2400 at 2 ohm and free aired it and figured 1k seems doable. But once i actually heard them on 1k each they shine on lower powered setups. Which is really good for budgets. The suspension isnt a joke. They take a while to break in and get warm every now and then they get warm on 500 clamped each. ut thats after hours of demos and 11v.
can they take a beating? Sure but not for long. This isnt in any way your typical sundown/tantric etc sub that is highly saught after. They are great for the average guy but not for someone looking to break records or do anything stupid.




On to CS. Gah hard to say this but he is the only Man i know that will answer his phone at 3 am for drunk talk. He has already offered ways to make the subs better at his own cost. Helping me bring money my way in the industry. One of the best people i have dealt with to date. And he isnt retarded like some owners can be at times.





Ill stop there because i already hear the tl;dr talk commencing. But there you have it. I may have missed some things but either way its that in a nuttshell. No cliffs i want to make you read.

They aren't really bad subs. When Skip had the 2 12s they did sound good and took the power well...
