Ive heard good things. They are on par with the skar vvx since they are pretty close, and the sa series since they are built by jacob's brother, run out of the same building and made by the same build house. The sa seem to be louder.

way louder, i used to have L7's.
Never getting L7's again, i feed my obsidian 15's 750 rms a piece
and obsidian did a test and the obsidians played at 3000 watts and were fine after

Obsidian 15" D2:
139.8 dB @ 52 Hz with 170 watts
149.2 dB @ 52 Hz with 1900 watts
150.4 dB @ 52 Hz with 3111 watts - no woofer failure. The woofer continues to operate perfectly.

NOTHING DOWN HERE YET :(

ummmm what? lol.
think the only way you can get an OA 18 right now is to use an existing motor off a 12 or 15 and an adaptor for the basket. first run was sold out completely during pre-order.

Edit - they do have their second pre order open right now.
