new 18 inch model information

Updates for all 18 inch based subs.(the s7201 will be reviewed at a later date).

All 18 inch subwoofers will have TWO B&C woofer options. They will have a *12* suffix or "ipal" . Website pricing will increase $150 for each single woofer product with the *12* suffix. And $400 for each Ipal.

The *12* suffix will use this woofer.
https://www.bcspeakers.com/en/produc...-0/4/18ds115-4

The *ipal* suffix will use this woofer.
https://www.bcspeakers.com/en/produc.../18-0/2/18ipal

Pre orders(with discounts) will begin soon..

* S1812 ~ $1549
S18ipal ~ $1799

* S3612 ~ $2399
S36ipal ~ $2899

* V1812 ~ $1599
V18ipal ~ $1849

* V3612 ~ $2549
V36ipal ~ $3049

* TV3612(formally the TV36neo) $2599
* TV36ipal $3199

No other changes to these models. The cabinets are still manufactured in Ohio and finished on site in our spray booth. The amplifiers are still our own proprietary DSP circuitry, ICE powered, each one hand assembled and right here in Ohio. The new woofers are from Italy and arguably the highest quality woofers available anywhere at these finished product price points.

Any insights on what level of performance improvement to expect?

The truth is like fertilizer, it’s crappy but it helps you grow...

When will the pre-order pricing start for the subs with either B&C driver?

Pre order price ended a week ago, from what I was told, they will be shipping soon when more drivers arrive. Tom posted in another thread.



10/28 Pre order discounted has ended. Thank you all for such incredible response to the new models.

Guys, what's the difference between the NEO and iPAL models in terms of sound/performance? What is the benefit of the IPAL over the NEO? Sorry if this has been asked a billion times!

It's really just a matter of max clean output capabilities. The Ipal has the edge in that regard. I wouldn't describe it as "day/night" as the 12 series sets the bar high to begin with. You could also say an edge in overall sound quality too but this would be mostly dependent on demanding material with LOUD volume. As the 12 series approaches its limits..the Ipal will still have a little more linear capabilities in the tank so to speak. But again, things would tend to be very loud for the 12 series to be up against its limits on a regular basis.
