  1. Level 5 12 basket

    If its the DC branded basket your not going to find it online for sale anywhere unless its used (which people normally dont sell used). The only place you'll be able to get it is from DC direct, and they most likely wont sell just the basket alone unless you order the recone with it, and even then they would most likely want you to send it in to them. Many companies with exclusive baskets will not offer them to people to buy because they will want to take those parts and build a woofer with a bunch of different manufactures parts. Sundown is the same way with their branded baskets.

    and if your your worried about the right size crimp being a tad loose you can always do it a size smaller. However use the correct sized dies on the correct size lug first, then go back and recrimp with a die that is the next size smaller than what you just used. This way you wont have some giant lips hanging out the side of your lug.

    Hate to say it, but your best using one of your correct sized lugs (if you have one) to test and get it right, before you doing it on the car and you get it wrong. Thats why you should always order extra lugs. At least 10 more than you planned to use because you never know when you might want to do some additional wiring that you didnt plan for. edit: thats a lot better!

    Those dies are too small for that lug. You shouldn't be making wings on the sides like that. If its a 350 kcmil lug use a 350 mcm die or there about. Granted your using a lug that is like 3 sizes up higher than the wire gauge. A 200 kcmil lug should be close to fitting the wire, I wouldnt go any larger than 250kcmil. A good crimp should look like this.

    I messaged them on facebook 2 nights ago with no response, emailed them last night and they said that it looks like you got one of the last ones but claimed to be expecting delivery around mid Jan.

    Sooner or later those cheaper china ones will break the top off when its under load sending shrapnel flying.

    ill buy one right now if I know im not waiting 3 months, or paying $1596 for the thing, their site still says backordered so who knows... Ive been contemplating buying one for a while now.
  9. Maybe the chrome magnet came out on rev 2 but for some reason that feels like that was new on the rev 3. I forget its been so long. Either way cosmetically you wont be able to really tell unless you tear it down to recone and look at the pole piece. The rev 2s and 3s can be used together with no issues. I do know the XL style leads also came out with the rev 2 so thats no way to compare either. Id just run it and forget about it. and for the record, sundowns site pictures of the 12 is the rev 2 if you actually look at the link, woofersetc is using a rev 2 picture, ssa is using a rev 2 picture as well. So its going to be hard to compare pictures from sites when they are all using the same picture. lol
  10. Does it have a chrome magnet (top and bottom plate)? If its not chrome its not a Rev 3.

    Looks like a nice crimper, but its no 1600 crimper... On their own ebay page they where asked and the reply was " Why does the sale price seem unusually high? temco_industrial : Price was raised temporarily due to low stock. Price will be returned to normal when we regain stock levels." That being said I dont know if I would support a company that price gouges their own customers. That is a shady and shitty sales tactic no matter how nice the thing maybe. https://contact.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?FindAnswers&redirect=0&iid=371533222016&requested=temco_industrial
  12. Also wondering where do I sign up. I should be back there one of these weekends again. LOL
