Default Phantom Soundz Review(s)

I haven't seen anybody talking about the new Phantom Soundz drivers so I thought I would make a thread for those that bought them to say how their experience with them is going. Feel free to post up your review in here if you want.

I got in on the pre-order and got myself a PS15D2 to replace my OA in my civic. I originally tried to get a D1 coil to run my Crescendo BC2000 at half an ohm, but I was late to the party and there was a misunderstanding with the build house and they did not include a D1 for me. James (KingPen) let me know immediately that my D1 wasn't in, and offered to send me a different coil or give me a complete refund. I wasn't too bothered by it, so I just opted for a D2. I have no complaints at all about their customer service. James was quick to respond to me, and let me know everything that was happening in a timely manner.

My enclosure design is 3.5-3.6 cu.ft. tuned to somewhere in the 35-36hz area with a 6" aero port. It's loud, especially for a single sub in a trunk car. While I haven't gotten it on a meter yet, it is a bit louder to the ear than another system that does a 144.8 sealed on the dash. I'll have to report back with my scores when that happens. As for the sq, I am surprised at how good it sounds. It is not a sq driver by any means, but I wasn't really expecting it to sound anywhere near as good as my OA did, which was in a ported enclosure geared more toward sounding good than raw spl. It's not as good as the OA was in the sq department, but it is a lot louder (has a lot to do with the box design though).

The build quality of the sub is excellent, and there are no complaints there. As for durability and power handling, I don't see any issues with what they claim it will take (1500 rms). It has been installed for a little over a week now, and I have been beating on it pretty well every day. I rarely listen to it any quieter than 100% of what the amp will give it before clipping, and it has been taking it well. I did get the coil hot once and it started to smell, but that was due to me really testing its limits on decaf for about 30 minutes with the ssf set a bit too low. My voltage tends to drop a bit after playing that long, so there was probably a slight clip near the end as well. 1500 rms....no problem.

Now for some pics.....I didn't take the time to make my box look pretty, since I was unsure of how I would like the design. But I'm happy with it, and it will eventually come back out and get painted or covered. That ugly yellow tape holding my port together will get covered with some black duct tape as well.

Those little metal pieces used to hold the spider down.... I haven't seen that method used before.. I've seen cassette style spiders (field drop in), glue and complete metal rings

I've never seen anyone else use that method either. It looks like a very strong joint though and they definitely didn't cut corners on the glue.

The metal tabs on the spider was done on the zv4. If u look at the pics in the thread of the first production run you can see the tabs. When I got my zv4 12's I noticed the tabs were NOT there. Spider, leads(not dual though), terminal, stitching and clear glue look identical in build. Seems like something that particular build house is now doing.

I have a zv4 also and no spider tabs, just clear glue. I think the zv4 has quad leads iirc.

If we build the driver here we don't use the tabs -- if it's a factory made unit it will have the tabs.

I can't tell you if they are the same as sundowns, but they are pretty damn big and are 4g. I was able to barely squeeze in two 8 awg wires in them when I wired the coils in parallel.

I feel I should chime in as well.

I currently have 2 Phantom soundz 15's D2.
I have them In a 6 cube, ported box tuned to 33 hertz.
The driver build quality is A+. I could not find one flaw upon arrival.
Each sub weighs around 50 pounds. (Heavy son bishes! Lol)

They get very loud, at times the higher notes are painful on full blast.
I have the subs wired at .5 ohms on a ct soundz 4000.1.
Voltage is consistent and doesnt drop lower than 12.8.
I still feel that they're laughing at the power Im throwing at them..
On a side note, the subs have not gotten stinky and never gotten hot. even after pounding them for over a hour at times.
I wasnt really chasing numbers with my build but I know forsure Im in the high 40's on music. These subs are great ground pounders.







Overall Im very satisfied with the product.
There customer service is very very good.
Colten the owner, will usually reply back to you within a hour.
