what do you guts think about these? I know visonik isnt a big name, but the subs look solid

10" Autotek SX 1066 450 watt dual 6ohm SUBWOOFER S @NEW - eBay (item 270345324101 end time Mar-17-09 18:15:13 PDT)
Im thinking about possibly ditching my pair of 12s for 3 or 4 10s. These guys are dual 6 ohm so I could run 3 of them to get the 1 ohm i need
As much as i want to hate on those, i had a set of MA Audio woofers that used the same basket/motor as those visoniks, also a D6 2.5" coil, and they were some of the best performing woofers for the money i have encountered
The Downside was that they all died fairly quick, one lasted about 4 or 5 months until the voice coil got hot enough that the cone completely separated from it. The second lasted about 10 months before the surround separated for the cone, i made a crappy repair a couple times but never really got it to hold correctly. The third i put away for about a year after about of use, then reused in another car for about 2 or 3 months before the cone cracked. It still worked ok for another few weeks until it got really bad.
At first, i had all 3 in about 1.1 cubes per sub sealed @ 4 ohms on an RF power series 800a2 that did about 1100 on the birthsheet which puts them at between 350-400 rms per woofer.
After the first one died, i decided to wire it down to 1.5 ohms bridged, so i don't know exactly what they were seeing, but i would imagine it was at least 700 a piece
Last setup that cracked the come was the same 800a2 bridged running the coils in parallel, so it had to be getting at least 1200 watts i would say, also in a sealed 1.25 cf box. did a 139 in a trunk car with half the back seat down on the old TL which was pretty damn impressive
Since i liked the subs but most of the problems i had were probably related to me overpowering the crap out of them for long periods of time, i say go for them. All the problems were with the cone being fkd up in some way so since these are different, they may be better in that regard!
