The owner of the company told me at CES, "they can take your 7.5k all day". I think he was trying to make a sale. I will say they are built damn good, but the coils aren't taking that power all day every day. I would say 1500 each for daily is a safe bet.

Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.

Nevermind. I was thinking of VFL's.

I still say 1500 though.

would my musical choice matter? i rarely listen to rap. i'll listen to dubstep 5 minutes at a time, in small doses. My listening of choice is metal. maybe 2k would be fine?

I've pushed 1400 on 1 15 daily.

The dude I bought it from before said they took more power than HDs.

Of course he was probably just blowing smoke up my ass, but there was some truth to it.

New Setup;

H/U; Pioneer DEH-80prs.

Wiring; 2 runs of 2/0 OFC & Big 3.

Subs; 2 D1 DC Level 4s.

Monoblock; DC 3.5k.

4 Channel; JBL GTO1004.

Highs; Vifa NE25VTS-04.

Mids; Aura NS6-255-8A.

Alt; 160a.

Batts; Optima, KHC1800.

Hate to bump an older thread, but could one of these handle 2500? How about in a 4th order setting?

Yes they can take 2500 clean power - that's pushing their upper limit for reliable daily use, but you should be fine

I did 4000 on one of mine. Coils are a little darker but it still works. Going to use it again here soon.
And by 4k I mean two sundown 2ks strapped at 2 ohm. So 1 a piece
