I'm really surprised that it didn't stick out running up that high. Just going by ear, nothing rattles, no bad noises when the cone gets to moving, and it's certainly no one note wonder. Can't wait to have 7 more to join it on the FP14k and all dialed in. Most pleased out the gates.
Exactly -- pretty impressive for a 'budget' driver. Data-Bass had this to say when they tested the prototype:The response shape as a result is very smooth and will not require much shaping with linear response up well past 400Hz and down only 3dB at 165Hz. Indeed it appears that this driver could be used as the woofer in a three way crossed over as high as 350-400Hz.
Although it doesn't have a whole lot of use for what we will be using them for, awesome characteristic from a big beefy 18" subwoofer!
Bass Addict and I traded a few PM's around the beginning of December (after I paid for my 8) talking about how these things were getting ready to blow up. KaPow!!!
