  1. High Quality Brute

    Posted by Bresch on 27th Apr 2017

    So I replaced both my Infinity kappa 120.9w 12 inch subwoofers with an SSA ICON 12 inch subwoofer. I am seriously impressed. In a small sealed enclosure this beast gets louder than both and is more accurate. This is out of the box. The Infinity subwoofers had a year of break in for comparison.  I couldn't believe the stiffness either. Just enough give to convince me that this sub wasn't frozen.

    I've only had it for three days so far. This sub has a noticeable change of performance each day. The lower notes have the most change, becoming more prominent with every session. The sub excels in playing lower frequencies around 25 hz to 63 hz which is honestly my sweet spot. I listen to a lot of EDM and Hip Hop. However, jazz and orchestral pieces sound just as well- at the same volume. The Subwoofer can blend or stand out. Its really up to you.

    This monster is also fast. Every bass note, every drop, every phase, and every punch is felt precisely where she wants it. This sub knows how to recapitulate the files I'm feeding her. Clean is the new sexy and this sub is very sexy. I'm a very happy customer.

    Qualitatively, the sub feels like it has solid thermal handling. I play the subwoofer for two to three hours full tilt and she gets moderately warm to the touch. I don't have an actual readout as to the temperature, but imagine touching a puddle of water after a heavy rain followed by a sunny day.

    1 more please?

    accurate, lightweight and precise is how I'd explain the sound of this driver. the ICON is a world class first hand choice of somebody who wants to ENJOY their music! don't let that fool you. she's a heavy hitter but with class...

  3. The BEST!!!

    I have 3 Icons 12's and they sound perfect!!! I have the hooked up tp a DC 3.5k and they ROCK!!!. I listin to all kinds of music and these subs have no problem with change. Just remember this is a 46 year old talking. Keep up the GREAT work and SSA are the best.

  4. Nothing better!

    Posted by Mark on 26th Dec 2012

    I have owned a few subs; audiopipes, pioneers, rockford, and i must say that the 12" icon has blown me away.
    It captures all the notes, hits hard and still maintains great quality.
    I wouldn't buy any other sub!

  5. Great Sub!!!

    Posted by Greg Addicoat on 25th Dec 2012

  7. Real proper

    Posted by Sterling on 17th Oct 2012

    I owned an ssa icon 12" back in the day.. and Imust say.. i honstly don't think ill ever buy another sub from ANY other company. The folks down at ssa kno what there doin. The sound quality is some of the best ur ears will ever hear. One thing I have always loved about the icon... its ability to hit highs, lows, and mids real proper! With some other subs it jus sounds like their tone deaf.. not the icon my friends.. hits every tone with flawlessness, and makes it look easy. I only give 4stars cuz I kno the zcon somehow, someway will blow the icon away lol

  8. best with sound

    Posted by N/A on 5th Jul 2012

Product Description

We are very proud to present you the SSA ICON. The SSA ICON is designed strictly with high performance in mind.  The ICON is all business from top to bottom, from part selection to looks. The design of the ICON is to be versatile, it can preform at very high levels all across the spectrum of performance and not just one portion. It will excel in both sealed and ported boxes. The ICON will deliver elite sound quality, which will rival much more expensive main stream sub woofers. The ICON can also compete with some of the louder sound quality subs out there in terms of output. With the right power and the right enclosure, the ICON can shake the bolts off your wheels and the fillings from your teeth, but only if you want it too.

One thing that many sub woofers lack is motor strength. The ICON has it to spare, a double stack motor that can really control the cone, while keeping clean linear excursion, even under the most demanding of listening environments.  If you want a class leading sound quality and vision blurring output, but do not want to make your checking account sweat, the ICON is the right choice. You can be proud of your purchase, because the ICON is designed and hand crafted in the U.S.A.
