I'm going to use a 1.4" CD so the SEOS 12 wouldn't work for me anyways.

My Gear:

JTR Noesis 228HT (LCR)
Axiom Audio QS8 surrounds
Sherbourn PA 7-350
Pioneer VSX-21TXH
JVC RS45
Falcon Screens FVHD105
Dual PSA XS30's (gone but not forgotten)

Do we know what size box, or specifically the baffle, the new Fusion 15 will use?

Dude, are you made of leprechauns? Cause that was awesome!

The Fusion-15 will be roughly 17.5” wide x 29” high x 15” deep.

Everything is done and ready to go. But I don't have a woofer here to take a photo of the kit, or package one up to get the kit weight to help figure the 'free shipping'. Parts Express just got in a couple 15" Deltalites, so I will order one on Monday to get all that finished up.

They've been out of stock for a while, then must have gotten more in on Friday. But it says only 2 available. Hopefully they order more than that so it's easy to keep them in stock.

YESSSSS!!!! I'm anxious to see what the pricing will be (and the availability).

Thanks again for all your effort!

They sent 2 samples just to be sure, and they tested 100% the same. One of the speaker designers and I tested them and were surprised at just how identical they were.

The cones are considered black. I'd probably consider them a charcoal kind of color. I will try to get some comparison photos in the next few days.

Great news. Anticipating final specs and pricing. Will parts express keep that woofer stockpiled, seems strange they got delivered only two?

They probably don't order many of those each time due to demand of 15" woofers like that. Plus they might have had a few back orders to fill.

Ok. Any consequence for future availability on the fusion 15?

I know the v1 didnt sell too well? And actually gained more attention sold out. I just hope the new fusion 15 gets off to a good start. Im hoping to order a pair.

I think v1 didn't sell that well because it was 95% the same as the tempests, it had a bit more spl at the very loudest 80 hz. It had a SEOS 12 over a 15" woofer which looks a bit funny I find. The v2 has a 15" seos and 15" woofer so it will look awesome and the 15" seos has advantages over the 12" seos too.

Just looking for some feedback, one way or the other.
such as:
a) it's snake oil don't bother
b) the frequencies the waveguide handles are not affected by this kind of added mass/dampening
c) The SEOS waveguide was designed correctly and stiff enough so while maybe an issue for other waveguides not for SEOS designs
d) experiment, by subjective listening and objective measurements

for now, I will not add putty

There's no reason to add any putty or anything to the back of the waveguides. They were made very solid.

I took before and after measurements of applying damping material to the SEOS12. There was no difference in FR or distortion.
