This is some info I got from Mark tonight. I can't wait to get my hands on 4 of these.


Here are a couple of shots:
http://www.istonline.ca/download/proto-1.jpg
http://www.istonline.ca/download/proto-2.jpg

A short video of the excursion viewed using a strobe-a-scope. The noise
was everything on the bench rattling like crazy:
http://www.istonline.ca/download/proto.mpg

Here are some details you can share with the forum:

Voice coil is made by us, which uses a special Polyamide former instead of
aluminum. 40% lighter than aluminum, stronger and can withstand higher
temperatures. The coil will not generate eddy currents like aluminum
does, resulting in lower distortion. Voice coil will use aluminum wire
and glue that well exceeds the temperature of the magnet wire coating.

Cone is carbon fibre with pressed paper. very strong and sexy.

Motor made by us. Will have aluminum shorting ring to cut down back EMF

We are looking at ~33mm Xmax with Xlim at 44mm. This is the limit of the
basket design used.

In all, a serious step beyond the IXL. Listening tests thus far resulted
in comments of 'quick' and 'effortless'.

That's a good point, at the old prices they would be a killer deal, but I have a sinking suspicion that won't be the case.

They are not going to be the old prices guys, I think we all know that. Mark didn't say what his pricing goals were. The fact that they build them here and not in China may be a good thing for us consumers. He has all of the tools here to build so that make will make some savings for us. I really think the price will be around $325-350 per driver but thats just a guess. The old IXL's had a pure black dust cap option. I also hope he makes that an option as I'm not a fan of any graphics on my subs.

I love my old IXL's, for the money they are great subs and perform very well. Mark also said that he can build the new IXL's with the high roll surround like the LMS ultra no problems. It will change the specs a bit but nothing major.
Hopefully one day I'll go see them in person and take a few more shots for everyone.

To clarify - I like the Mach5 art design on its own. I just don't like ANY art on my subwoofers.
I don't even like the "grey" cone on my favorite woofer, the JBL 2226.
And I HATE silver or copper cones. Actually, I hate anything reflective. Including those shiny dust cap spikes on some subs.

More than one company has lost a potential sale from me because they had a great product, but couldn't keep it basic black like a speaker should be.

I agree, I want my stuff to blend in rather than stick out.

Nice! It seems that the motor is bigger in the new model which should translate to more power handling. More Xmax and a shorting ring are nice additions. If the price is competitive, around $400, it should do well.

How about parameters such as power handling and sensitivity? Measurements of the sub? How about T/S Parameters like Fs, etc.? Also, on the old model, a 130L was recommended for sealed. Will the new model work better on a smaller box?

Incidentally, the Underground looks to be a solid candidate for a 20-21Hz tapped horn. I'd like to see it available on the site at some point.

Not that I haven't blown my tapped horn budget for another year

It would be badass if someone could build a 24-25", 33-35mm xmax driver for at or below the $750 mark.
