Yes,
very nice indeed.

I have been looking forward to doing some research on E D. I have heard very good things about them. Although their higher series seems to be a little small, at least compared to dd 99's,xxx,brahama,u-2's,etc. They seem to be posting some great numbers, and for a piston sub seem to also have SQ as well. Very good technical support, and they can recone in any config you want,and upgrade w/ credit.. marvelous

On the 8" note, i purchased a set of 8" apex jr (not just apex) subs. 14.9 mm x-max, only 200wrms though. They model great in a decent small ported enclosure, and sound awsome. Right now i have the pair in a 2.4 cu.ft. ported eclosure, 40sq in port area, tuned to 27hz.

$70 for a pair great deal!!!

And to add to that, they are $225 ea.
They do not advertise them on their website, best bet is to contact them by email, and ask about them for more info.
They had a complication with their equipment manufacture and do not have plans to make another production run. They will however have a certain supply for themselfs such as recones/coils/baskets.

Well they will still be making the flat pistons in the K or O series. The A's are coming out in a new design soon. eD subs are SQ first and foremost. They just happen to get very loud :D The big 8's are special order. That's why you don't see them on the website. Email Ben there for info. Awesome guy and great deal with.

Just another pic of the sub in an enclosure to give you a better idea of the size. This enclosure has two of 'em.

Dude that sub is crazy!! i've never seen an 8 inch like it, i'm very impresseed.

But with the manufacturing fault, and the extreme conditions it's exposed AND the cheap price, i get the feeling it wouldn't last long

It wasn't a problem of the design, it was a problem getting parts fast enough from their supplier. They will have more but it maynot be with the flat cone. Power handling has been tested and the sub will handle upwards of 1000W. For an 8 I don't think that $225US is cheap by any stretch for an 8.

there also is the JL 8w7, those are pretty beefy subs, but only 300 watts RMS, not 1000. But JL has always been known for their effeciant subs.

Wow...a two year resurrection....:P

The W7's are a nice sub indeed. I wouldn't call JL subs efficient by any means though. In the last two years eD has gone through many changes and amassed a lot of fanboys and a lot of people/buildhouses that hate them. The big 8 was a nice sub....but the company has gone downhill since those days....

No it was a limited run a couple of years ago. You can look up Elemental Designs and try to find info on it there though...I'm sure there will be info on it there.

There was a test done by a few guys a while back on a bunch of different 8" subs. What I remember them saying was that the VC sat 10mm forward of center and that it could sit the cone on the top plate with travel to spare. Now the sub IIRC weighs about 20lbs so the motor structure is certainly capable but wether or not the VC can take 1000W of heat and disipate it efficiently is another story. Can't remember for sure though how high some people went with it.

well i was looking and seen this thread and thought why
not revive it, just to add that i did own a 10" w7 that needed
to be reconed due to the rubber surround cracking so the
only way to get that done was to blow it, and with a sub like
that i was only using a 500/1 from jl as well. so i took it to my
friends house and we cut and extension cord wired direct to
the sub and threw the switch. :shock: it took being plugged
into the wall for 33 seconds before i noticed smoke out the
top port. ( it was in the high output box) and if i remember
right being plugged into the wall is like 1500 watts rms at a
constant 60 hz tone. :shock: correct me if im wrong but i
thought it would be nice to know. we also had a ford focus
2 door with 3 8" w7 that done 143 in a db drag running
3-250/1s. just some info. 8)
