The whole point was to gather info that we could rely on to anyone asking about the differences between the current SE products and the new ICE powered products. Secondary to that was attempting to get opinions on if we should offer ICE upgrades to current SE products. We had scheduled 6 amps to be expressed in(over nighted) to get here about 15 days before we were going to make the new ICE product announcements and begin taking orders. So we could have all of the feedback here BEFORE the ICE announcements.

However there was a last second delay in this as circuit revisions delayed things at the OEM. So we never got any production samples early. Also, the more we thought about it the more we leaned toward NOT offering the ICE amps as upgrades. The pricing just didn't make any sense in relation to the (mostly subtle) performance increases involved in our opinion.

I hadn't heard anything about tweaking the SE model amps for better extension.

That is still on our "to do" list but there are quite a few things taking precedent at the moment. To be honest it is in the "we'll get to this when we can" list. I think I've always mentioned it is something we MIGHT be able to do. Jury is still out until we can do some testing.

Put a short throw 10mm xmax driver in the hands of a talented engineer and I'd bet folks would be shocked on how much better it sounds versus the "biggest driver in the biggest box with the biggest amp" approach.

To answer the questions though....we don't provide any T/S parameters on our products, sorry.

Hi Tom,

As you would have read in my later posts I had already measured T/S and just needed xmax (and power handling helps) for bassbox to help with modelling a suitable box instead of blatantly copying your design and needing to EQ to suit as I use pro amps. The drivers were picked up at a reasonable price so I thought I'd have a go at it as I have a room full of 12inch subs with PR's!

I understand you not disclosing TS parameters as that would lead to quick copies out of china like everything else in this world...

Regards,
Brett

Thanks, I knew the SB13 couldn't be that much smaller. I needed a smaller sub and almost got the SB13 but went with PSA.
