These things pound and only get better as the brake in I’m so glad I got these
Anyone who talks trash about Skar has never ran their equipment. Coming from a Rockford Fosgate set up, the EVL 18” meets the standard for this audiophile.
Updated review. Subs are good and broken in. Amps are running perfect. Added 2 deep cycle batteries. I highly recommend ordering the skar bass knob with the built in clip detector for your amps. That thing is the most critical piece alongside running proper sized power wire.
Build and various demo videos available here:
I have for 18s in the typical vented slot enclosure. I took my time and used a box calculator to spec out my enclosure. I have my box tuned to the FS of the of the subs 31.2hz. I hooked one amp up, and did my normal bench test in the garage to ensure all my wiring was correct. This was the loudest box I've ever designed at just 50 watts. At 250 watts items in my garage started moving. Subs weren't even moving at this point as I have the box configured to 4 ohms to keep the power low, keep the amp cool, and keep from cooking the subs. Inside the vehicle, with my gain set to 0, and the box still configured at 4 ohms, it wants to rip my truck apart on volume 10. Subs are still only moving last that 1 millimeter. Being near 40, I've retired from my DB dragging days, but this SKAR Audio system gives me flash backs. I ordered 2 amps, even though I only need one, I'm going to install them both for aesthetics and have one hooked to wires that go no where for looks. So I can lie and say I'm running the amps strapped at 7k lol. It it will let me upload it, I'll post my whole build video. Welp the video is too big, so here is the youtube link:
