I have the bills...and as per the bills it goes like this.

All prices in USD
DD - M3 Amp: $1700 . Discount 400 $. After taxes a all the things, the final cost was $1450

DD-woofers: Retail price $510 + $10 (per spider). I have 5 spider woofers so total MRP is $550 per woofer.
Final cost after tax, discount cost of both the woofers is $840

Wirings: $75 Kicker 0 guage wirings.

Total = 1450 + 840 + 75 = $2365

Forgot: 2365 + duties paid at the airport.

I didn't understand the spider adding thing. As far as I can see, the design of the 3512 is for only one spider. Did you request to add more spiders? What for?

Can't tell from the photos that Amit has posted where the extra spiders have been added. The pic from the site shows the sub thus:



But the question is why? Aakhir Kyun?

Well, i just spoke to my bro about the spider thing and there is a slight clarification on the same.

The installer told him that these DD woofers come with 4 spiders. Another spider can be added. But my bro just told me that he did not ask him to install the 5th spider. So as far as it goes, now it having 4 spiders.

But dont worry, i shall call up the installer in US and get it cleared from hm today.

The reason he said to add more spider is that after 2 years of use the tightness of the woofer tends to reduce....To keep that intact they add more spiders to the same. But as i said, wait, a let me get it confirmed from the guy in US again.

Viase, i am also unaware of the spider thing. LBM you saying ki the plutonium has 4 spiders....if your could post the pics of the same....maybe i can also look for those in my DD subs.

Once I found 3 spiders in my Subwoofer. I used some Hit Spray on it and now there are no more spiders.
Why don't you two spiderwallas try it?

So now after removing all your spider, do the woofers play anymore? Trying to pull Sam back to the thread
