SA SERIES

MSRP Starting at: $299.99

SA-10/12/15 (Rev.3):

The Sundown SA series has been our most popular product line since the introduction of the SA-12 in 2009. It was the result of over a year of testing and prototyping until all of our goals and expectations were blown away. The SA series has continually evolved over the years thanks to extensive testing and feedback from our SPL competition Team and our customers but still stays true to its legendary design heritage. It has never failed to prove itself year-in and year-out in every application ranging from daily musical builds to all-out SPL competition vehicles.

When designing the SA series we started out with an FEA optimized motor & coil design capable of 19mm of one-way Klippel verified excursion and just over 33mm of x-mech. This motor & coil setup was then mated up to an extremely robust double-layer Nomex spider with fully tied-on “XL” tinsel leads (84-Strands of Conductor), an SPL competition grade paper cone, and a strong foam surround. The motor also features a large magnet ID shorting ring (faraday ring) to reduce distortion causes by inductance & inductance variation over stroke.

We realized that this still was not enough to meet our goal of delivering the best driver on market in this price range to our customers. To that end we designed a highly optimized voice coil cooling system that has since found its way into almost every other subwoofer we make to this day. This system allows our 2.5" coil to match and exceed the thermal performance of many competing 3" coil drivers on the market without requiring the usage of a much heavier voice coil than required for the design. The result is that the SA features the ideal mix of mass & stiffness to give you the best performance in nearly every type of enclosure.All of this hard work and engineering has led to the incredible reputation now enjoyed by the SA series worldwide. We are very proud of what these woofers are capable of and we believe that they are one of the best woofers on the market today hands down for the money.

Features & Technology:

  • Xmax = 19mm one-way by 70% BL

  • * Vented magnetic gap
  • * Optimized high-velocity pole vent
  • * Innovative high-velocity vented frame spacer ring
  • Black Aluminum 2.5” voice coil former for superior heat dissipation
  • High Temperature copper voice coil wire
  • Large aluminum faraday ring (Magnet ID)
  • Spring Loaded Terminals
  • Stitched-On “XL” Tinsel Leads to prevent fatigue and failure
  • High strength cast aluminum frame
  • Optimized for small ported, sealed, & band-pass enclosures

* -- These features combine to create the optimized coil ventilation system.

SA-8 v.3:

The SA-8 v.3 represents the pinnacle of low distortion, ported box 8 inch subwoofer technology. We built on our experience with the SA-8 series dating back to the original model which launched in 2010 to create something completely unique to the market. Every piece of the SA-8 v.3 has been custom tooled with the utmost performance and lowest distortion in mind. We started with a proprietary FEA optimized motor design engineered just for the SA-8 v.3 which features a large aluminum faraday right for low magnetic and inductive distortion levels. This motor is mated to a custom tooled and patented (US Patent D691595) frame which allows for a larger spider and superior clearances to nearly any other 8" woofer on the market today. The spider itself was custom tooled to achieve a very even compliance curve over its entire range of stroke and also features large tied down “XL” tinsel leads to handle incredible amounts of power and abuse. The SA-8 v.3 features a full 16mm of Klippel verified one-way linear excursion and mechanical capacity in excess of double the linear limits (around 2.5” peak-to-peak) to ensure that mechanical failures are nearly impossible. We also tooled an all new surround for the v.3 update with the same incredibly linear geometry as the Mega-Roll v.2 surrounds found on our larger woofers (X v.2 series and larger).

The SA-8 v.3 takes a departure from its larger cone diameter siblings in terms of the voice coil ventilation. Just like its predecessor, the SA-8 v.2, we employed a solid pole-piece to maximum magnetic flux in the motor – but in order to reduce mounting depth we did not use a vented frame spacer and, instead, drilled vent holes around the basket base. In order to exceed the thermal performance of the v.2 model we added sixteen chamfered gap vents to the back plate to keep the high-velocity air flowing over the voice coil. In other words – the SA-8 v.3 will give you everything that you loved about the v.2 but with even more durability & even lower distortion.

The standard SA-8 v.3 features a 4-layer copper voice coil wound on a black anodized aluminum former for the most possible low-end extension. We do offer SPL models with lighter coils and even "extreme SPL" models with harder spider packs and other impedance configurations (these must be custom built). We can use anywhere from 2 to 6 spider layers on SPL versions to tailor the FS where it needs to be for a given SPL application.
