Cody, thank you for clarifying the differences between the models. I have been drooling over these subs for a while now.I know I'm seriously late to the party, however I still want to help. We have the MAN18 enclosure with posted PDF design specs. This is free to use for yourself for design ideas. Also we have recommended enclosure types with volumes and port tuning range as well for you to use. This narrows the field quite a bit.
As you may know, we are business cousins to Funk Audio, so all the product comes from the same place with the same hands on approach to accurate building.
What to know: the 18.0 is the benchmark sub that we compare performance to. This is a bomb proof sub with a 11 year history and measurements that have not been disputed. So we use it to illustrate the differences between sub drivers.
The differences are this:
18vS same driver as the 18.0 but just a little less of a roll off in the low end. In my experience with this driver it really hits the "Reference Studio" impression right on the head without losing the musicality that the 18.0 is known for. The main difference is that the vS drivers make a bit better use of a larger enclosure whereas the 18.0 is designed to be as small a footprint as possible. So 100L box is where we start, Funk Audio starts smaller than that.
18vX more low end bass, not as much top end. You could call it a 18.0L
18vXR even more low end bass, same top end as vX - so same HT direction just more low end.
If you want to know more about our drivers please feel free to reach out at any time.
Possibly. But it hasn't been successful in the past. We just need people to fill out the contact form and request group buy programs.Just a random thought Cody, a lot of people like to roll their own in here. Would you consider a group buy on just the drivers and not specifically the 18's?
24vXR is good to go. Just needs pricing and promotion. Because we run zero ad promotions, we rely on our fan base to spread the word.Totally understand, what is the MOQ that would need to be hit. Nothing ventured nothing gained on my part so I'd see where it went. The pedigree is such people would take note.
Nice. I'm down.Cody any chance you can work on a sliding scale, if we group buy 10 drivers it's this much, 50 this much etc. You can start with the 21XR if you are inclined to do that. Feel free to send me a PM or I can email you at Harbottle if you would rather communicate that way.
No worries m'dude. I'm just putting it out there into the world.I didn't for get about you Cody, work has been crazy lately. Ill be in touch once I can move on from a project which has consumed all my free time at home gathering info after work, hopefully be this week
Hi there.I'd be more interested in this 21" if I could get an idea of the price. Is it listed somewhere and I'm just missing it???
I just got a email from Gorilla Killa, he wants to fire one up. I'm just pricing it out now. You should give him a shout and see what arrangements he has going on.Is there a group buy going on for the 21" I can email you about?
