I've got a SEOS18/TD15M/BA750 build going. The boxes are finished and the drivers installed. I just got a miniDSP in the mail. I'm now trying to find the time to climb the DSP learning curve, get my amp situation resolved and finish the project.
Perhaps I'll do a build thread. I've documented much of the build with photos.

Sounds good. Was thinking about maybe ordering a SEOS 18 in 1.4".

I was reading a few hundred pages ago about the Radian
Radian 5312BE-NEO

Has anyone been able to put these to the test? I know it sounds crazy, but I'm thinking of building 2 of them into a "can" box style to fit on the tower of my wakeboard boat. I figure if I'm going to spend $1K+ for a mass produced design, I might as well make my own.



Any thoughts or ideas??

Think that might garner more attention in its own thread. I do recall it being mentioned, but more eyes will see it with its own thread. That's one crazy expensive driver.

Builds: Maelstrom 21 Ottoman Build, Dual Opposed MFW's x 2, Statements, SEOS-12/TD12M x 5.

You're right, I need to start my own thread. I'll work on it next week and give specifics as to what I'm trying to accomplish.
Those are definitely crazy expensive drivers but instead of buying 6 or 8 of the current leading "tower speaker (WetSounds)", I can probably get away with using just 2 of the Radians with hopefully minimal work and also save a ton of room on my tower. Plus they're supposed to hold up extremely well in wet environments.
I spoke with the rep over there at Radian a few times and explained what i was trying to do. He says he will cut me a crazy deal... We'll see I guess.

I have some Reaction Audio CX-15's in my theater room right now and it uses Radian 5215B drivers and they sound awesome, but I couldn't image getting those drivers anywhere near water.


I believe the only real advantage of the Neo is the weight, being about 10lbs lighter then the standard coax driver.

I know it crazy to invest that kind of money, but the rep said they would hold up. I had $10K wrapped up in my first boat stereo and had to replace speakers a couple times due to weathering. The first generation wake tower speakers were just car audio coax speakers in a can, so needless to say that didn't hold up over time. My new boat has an intense system in it that I will be taking to shows hopefully next year, but I'm still needing to build the tower speakers. Everyone has the same 2 brands and I wanted to be different. Why not get a serious pro audio coax that would hold up better in the bad environments instead of what everyone else has. I think a lot of guys on this forum would agree that nothing stays stock for long. Everyone is constantly ripping things apart to experiment with different Xovers and drivers. It's probably a sickness to always want to be different, but oh well!
By the way the only reason I'm gonna go with the Neo's is the weight difference. Every pound on my tower counts, so might as well go with Neo's. I want the beryllium drivers because honestly I figure why not? I've heard a few beryllium drivers and I felt I could tell a significant difference, but then again it may not be what I thought I heard. The $100 bottle of wine always tastes better than a $10 bottle, right?... Haha...

Why 15" for a boat?

Just sounds HUGE for a tower.

I agree. The 12" woofer uses a paper cone. I think you would want some other material OTHER than paper to be near the water.

My Klipsch 12" sub uses a Cerametallic woofer. I don't know exactly what that is, but to the touch it feels like plastic.

Wasn't there mention of some weather resistant coaxes in the coax thread? If i was going to roll my own for a boat, that would be my direction.
