Here's a vid with the older SFX6.4 module:

And another one (seems very loud; webpage states 106dB @40W/26V):

I do however like the module, but again if that breaks then the whole unit is shot and pushing an amplifier to its limit will generate a lot of heat. In my mustang my amplifier is hot and needs a lot of airflow over it but I am pushing the sound out preaty heavily.

Maybe the camera mic dosent do it justice though. In my videos it sounds exactly like it was in person.

Awesome Todd! Now imagine that baby with a sound system. Also are those gear struts better ones than the prvious ones? I don't see any plastic on those.
