I see that this driver gets a lot of acclaim on the car audio forums... but am trying to figure if it is any good for ht/sq in a living room... specifically I was thinking about 4-6 of em in an opposing enclosure... any thoughts?

You would need a ton of amplifier for 4-6 of them so I wouldnt think that would be a smart option when you could just buy a 15" or 2 for cheaper. They will work fine for the home though, but most will buy them for car use since they only need a very small box.

you're talkin up to $1050 worth of subs....i own an OEM myself...but man for that money, unless you're going for shock factor, i would get a pair of some serious high-end subs.

It would work. It would be expensive, but in return you would still get big sound, but from a smaller enclosure.

It can be used in either, if you're limited on space for your house, the driver is ideal. We can put on in less than 0.5 a cube with a passive and be only down 1-2dB at 20Hz with a little EQ. For a car you can tune it higher and get some great SPL out of a very small box. But if you're using 4-6, I would recommend a 15" or two first.

You better get dual TC-2000 15" drivers,only ~600 a pair and they would compete with 4 of these 10" drivers no problems.

The 10 OEM looks tempting...but I prefer dual TC-2000 15" for my next order.

Ask yourself mortal , do you have as much displacement as me ? The answer is no unless you have a Windmere fan sub.

i was thinking of them b/c I'm looking at doing an equilateralesque triangular box... kinda like the ML subs... wondering what the net effect of doing that w/ 1 active and 2 pr would be though.. wouldn't really have any cancelling effect unless all 3 were active right?

The TC-10 makes a fantastic small sealed HT sub, I built one with two TC-10's in an opposed configuration in a small sealed box and it sounds very good. It has the size and accommodates the small form factor of a car, but has the excursion to do well as a HT sub.
