That's a pure Nathan production.

He's actually pretty smart.

Only needs me to count higher than 10, then I remind him to take off his socks.

Then he's good to twenty.

But he doesn't like odd numbers

I saw the rare smile while I was demoing.
We are pretty excited. Probably him more than me.

Sensed a bit of excitement. Almost like he's been waiting....

It is true we are working a few new things, nothings quite ready for details yet, but they will be very exciting.

Anyone have any thoughts; 21.0 vs. 21.2

Wear a helmet Nathan.

For the 21.0

+3dB on every level compared to the 18.0 with similar distortion or less? Possibly more efficiency on the higher end 30/35+ Or maybe I'm dreaming.

For the 21.2

This one just scares me... Are you sure your facility can handle it? Last time I was there the 18.2 the entire place shook...

We are excited to release our new line of very efficient loudspeakers that offer unparalleled value for the listener. From our striking two-way to our current flagship, all of our loudspeakers are very capable statements of what is possible when we design a speaker around the absence of typical limitations.

Happy want to get one...
Mad it's not on for 50$
Reality sets in, Can't and shouldn't get anymore...at least for now


6.1P on sales ($2200 Shipped in north America)
I could get these, at this price. Can't go wrong

8.2P Demo also on sale ($4850) - Not sure shipped or not...
Those 8.2P are in very good condition. Like they are brand new. Saw them 2 weeks ago
Someone should grab them

Seems like someone is working on the website at around 11PM

The 21 should have around 6db more then the current 18.0 40hz down, roughly the same 50hz up. We are always working to lower distortion but the 18.0 is already very good so if we can get it to have similar distortion at its limits we will be happy.

All prices on our site include shipping in North America

Although I love my DXD12012, I am very curious about the Funk 18.0. I was actually thinking of selling my DXD12012 and purchase two 18.0s instead of going DXD DUO.

DXD12012 - 112 SQ inch x2 = 224?
Funk 18.0 = 254 SQ inch

This does not put linear excursions into consideration either. Many subs outperform the DXD at similar price let alone funks. DXD subs list very little information important information.
DataBass lists measurements if you need them. There is a very good reason why people consider these guys to be best sealed subs in the market.

A single Funk 18.0 will completely blow it out of the water and can compete with the SUB2 from paradigm. Two would require another outlet on it's own line.
It's not going to be even a fair comparison.

Funk Audio Subs are proven to perform in real world and are in their own class. Simply because they are extremely clean and very low distortion. Amps are also World class and highly efficient.
If you read about the Vancouver GTG 2014 results, Everyone literally came down to the same results without question.

I must warn you, Once you get 2 of these, you will never be able to go back to any other subs.
Give Nathan a call if your still interested, hope this helps.

I am pretty much limited to one dedicated outlet for one sub, and the other will more than likely have to share an outlet with the equipment.
I understand the Funk 18.0 has serious output, but I just hope its also very musical, and able to vanish in the room without calling any attention to itself. Wish I could demo it in my home.

This is going to be the most musical sub you can find from low volume to high.
It's even compared to the LMS Ultra from tc sounds and it still out performs that. Before funk the ultra was known as the best sub with a lot of musicality. Funk can beat that with the tsadv1 let alone the 18.2

In terms of musicality funk audio very well could be the most musical in the world along with sheer output and efficiency. Distortion levels prove it as well.

You don't have to worry about the musicality of the Funk 18.0... Nathan will be getting you the best. The only driver that can beat it is his own drivers up higher in the line and as far as I know the only difference is power and spl if I remember correctly.

Send Nathan an email or call. I sure he will be able to set you up something awesome. What ever your getting from Funk speaker or sub is going to be a fairly large upgrade.

Also the performance is effortless. You will know what I mean when you get one.

I have been going over some reviews and speaking with Nathan, and I believe a single 18.0 has more than enough power for my needs. Nathan also advised me that he is releasing a new 18.0C model, which is slightly smaller
than the 18.0, and using a version of the TSAD18. He mentioned the performance, sound quality and distortion is identical to the 18.0 minus the same output of course. The new 18.0C does come with 1000Watt DSP amp
and it looks absolutely gorgeous. I was in awe when Nathan showed it to me and still am. I am considering getting two revised 18.0C models instead, as it will fill my room better than a single 18.0. Nathan did mention a pair of
the new 18.0C will have more output (3 or 4db more) than a single 18.0 at all frequencies. Right now I am just finalizing my choice before I place the order.

The revised 18.0C

Woah that's a heck of an improvement! I'm sure you will be very happy with it. Everything he does has very low distortion and is extremely clean.
You can definitely trust Nathan with subs. There is no better man for that. Just don't disappear like the rest of the guys and respond back to us We all want to know the results
I'm sure he will be able to help you out with the details.

Thanks for posting the pictures!

We are also working on upgrading the driver and amp in the 18.1. With the same new 1000 watt amp and a TSAD18 driver.
