Not very efficient, will take big power for long periods of time, they do well in small ported boxes. If you don't have big power and have the space for a bigger box you will probably do better with the mayhem from AA. Lenny did our kaos class which is 3 min straight on music averaging like a 159.5 or there abouts. Not many subs can take that heat that long.

After 5 years if competing, I have never seen another sub take the power and music like those smds.
