Another one to add to the list of beasts.

However, I'm still very worried about it's lack of xmech. The coil and spiders are too close to bottoming out me thinks.
(Within it's abilities it looks like a beast though.)
Prototype of Rockford Fosgate Power T3 19"


Also... something tells me it is going to cost a small fortune!
I still don't think it is enough beyond an LMS-18 to be worth looking into really. (I'll keep waiting...)

That is one deep driver!
Also wonder what the xmax and xmech will be? Maybe huge as the basket and enforcement is so deep?

Looks to me like it must have at least 2" of travel before anything would bottom out, but its hard to get an idea of scale from the picture.

I'm sure you are right on the cost though. Its RF so you know its going to be a pile of money.

SMD posted the video on that subwoofer a few days ago or longer. Looks awesome and happy to see the 5" coil. But probably would need a tonne of EQ to sound good in HT. who knows.

There's massive amounts of travel there, likely surround limited. That looks pretty epic, though it's really deep. That VC/former looks pretty heavy, too, but will have to see specs once they release.

They released most of the specs:
http://www.rockfordfosgate.com/products/details/t3s1-19

34mm excursion
3kW RMS
91db/watt

Less linear-excursion than the LMS. I was hoping for at least 40mm given how deep the thing is!!! LOL
I guess it's not so super-special after all.

Oh well...

They don't give enough data to calculate all parameters with WinISD, but I'm skeptical about the 91 dB SPL given what Mmms must be.

Any more info on that thing? Sounds like a low hz monster.
