I have four of these subs I used to run in an IB but they've been in storage for a couple years.

I need the specs on them so I can sell them but I'm having a hard time finding anything. Does anyone know where I should look or maybe have the data stashed somewhere?

Thanks in advance,

Chris

these are the specs that came pre loaded in winisd.

they "smell" about right to me from my understanding of that driver, for whatever that is worth.

btw, why sell? they are a good one.

are they the original tempests or the tempest x-2's? Specs are quite different between those IIRC

Thanks. We sold the house with the DIY home theater and who knows when I'll have another place where I can do something like an IB setup.

These are from late 2004. I believe they are the MKIII.

How much were you planning on selling them for?

My Dual 18" LLT subs 120dB down to 10hz

You could just build four sealed boxes, and run them off of a couple cheap pro amps.

I have them on the local Craigslist for $95 each or $350 for the set. I'm thinking that might be slightly high though.

I thought about it. I actually have a old Behringer EP1500 listed for sale with the subs. And a five piece set of HTD Level 4 speakers.

There are just other things I want right now.
