I can't access the specs for the SSI on the webpage... (my computer sucks)
Does anyone have the specs or can anyone get the specs and post them for me? Also, the enclosure specifications.
However, the main question is: What do you all think? I know it's rated at 750 watts, but can I give it 900 at 1 ohm and it still be strong and durable enough to withstand it?
Is TREO just as dependable as DD?
Thanks for your input, everyone!!

they're cool subs. It should take 900w no problem.
as far as sealed and ported, I would go with 2.5^ft and 3.3^ft, being that for a single 12" it goes like 2^ft and 2.5^ft.
As far as the dependability is concerned, the only way to tell would be under controlled environment which I cannot afford, but they're def reliable, no joke subs. I have 2 of the 12's.
I hope this can help u.

my choice is between an re sx (not optimal sealed and 1000 rms) and the treo ssi (unsure of optimal enclosure specs and 750 rms)

i have a mono 900 watt amp.
Which would you choose and why?

nah, just means that i know alot more about the ssi. they are both great lil subs for the money, but i got 2 12ssi subs new for 300, now that is special that doesnt happen too often! and their shiny looking motors are beautiful in my opinion.

he may not have any experience with Treo's, and the simple fact that they are more of an SPL sub, he probably has no use for them. idk, i could be wrong.

Treo has always made top notch subs.. not as common as most brands, but high quality stuff.
If need be, I can dig up their website and try to find the TS specs to paste here.. if you can't get them from someone or somewhere else.
I don't have their site handy.. but I haven't looked for it yet.

HEY!!! It's my long lost "sensei" (is that how you spell it?) - how you been, Glass? S,h,i,t! Long time no read!
lol - But yeah, thanks for responding! You too, Muddy!
So what's up? Do you think I'm gonna be happy with a TREO SSI?
Just to refresh your memory:
I got 900 watts and only room for a small sealed enclosure. Is the SSI for me?
Looking for SQL, HOWEVER - i'm leaning more towards the SPL end of the bracket, you know?
From what I gather, TREO is up there with Digital Designs (regarding durablility). Also, I've been led to believe that TREO can deliver sweet SPL while still getting very, very loud.
NOW, the problem is: are people simply refering to the SSX and CSX or does the same description apply to all their products?

(thanks, you guys!)

the TSi series is Treo's entry level sub that gets fairly loud witht the recommended RMS rating

the TSX series was designed for SQL in mind

the SSi series was designed for LOUD bass, but it sound really good, imo. it's no 13W7 or any other sub designed for solely SQ and high excursion to get loud as well.

the SSX was designed for BALLS OUT BASS, they also sound good, for the insane amount of bass they put out.

the CSX is Treo's BALLS TO THE WALL SPL comp sub simply put. it is made for burps, but like the MT, you can tweak it to put out decent SQ.

i have heard every model of the Treo's except the CSX.

hope that helps:-)

So, in plain english... looks like a winner, huh?
Also, the sensitivity is lower than other subs I've been researching. Any idea why and what that means?

I know I'm a nuscence, but I really appreciate your help.

i think that means it has a heavier/thicker cone, than say something like an IDMAX or DLS Iridium sub which has more of a paper cone.

Joe Smoe says sensitivity ratings don't mean that much after you put the sub in an enclosure and start adding hundereds of watts.

ummmm....fill the box will polyfill(makes the sub "think" it has more airspace)
seal all of the inside seams of the box with some stuff(i forgot what it's called) i guess caulk would work.
Dynamat your trunk, to keep it from rattling(keeps more bass inside the car instead of outside the car due from lost sound due to vibrating body panels)
ummmmmmmm.....that's all i can think of right now.

OH!!! and make sure you hook it up right! lol

Oh yeah? what about the specs on the sealed enclosure for this baby.
(hey, read my other thread, man. CRAZY FIRE IN MY CAR!!!!!!!)
