320 lb., holy sh*t.
At first, I thought you just meant the sledgehammer setups, but followed the link. I hadn't even heard of those before. I'd love to hear one though.

I want to hear one of those...In a Honda CRX...Powered by a JBL GTI8000.....I think it would be cool....

Hmmmm on second thought...It would probally have to be put in a larger car...The box would have to have so much braing just to hold the thing up it the box would have to be bigger just to compensate for that...

They look mean as hell...I wanna hear one..

They say they are designed for "SQL". Man there is no way that thing is gonna sound good. It may get loud as hell, I dunno, but a 22 inch cone aint gonna sound good.

and people... there is NO SUCH THING AS SQL!! I saw this thing at the CES this year, and everybody looking at it was wet... personally, I was underimpressed. I am willing to bet it'll do 40Hz so loud, it'd liquefy your BRAIN, but sound good? I doubt it... You'd have to have 10kW at your disposal to make that cone move fast enough to do ANYTHING even remotely "transient"... A sinewave street beater is all that thing could ever possibly be... I gotta agree with Nik... but for different reasons. I must say, though, I am impressed that SOMEBODY was ballsy enough to build a woofer that weighs more than ME! opinions on the new MTX jackhammer subs? -- posted image.
It all reminds me of something that Molière once said to Guy de Maupassant at a café in Vienna: "That's nice. You should write it down."

If it will even play 40 Hz.  That thing has a HUGE coil on it so the inductance must be crazy.  I uploaded a couple videos I took of it here: http://www.woofervids.com/thumbnails.php?album=51
