Yes, it´s a very good brand, the Rubicon series it´s very good and they do rated power @ 14v , not like the XXX series wich does at 16v.

unless your right into car audio no one knows about soundstream so everyone passes over them because "they've never heard of them" so most people stick to name brands (RF, Kicker...) yet a soundstream usually does better then rated for much less $$$ unlike many of the name brands that dont even do rated power
