    In case you guys haven't noticed, the new Peerless SDF 10" subwoofers are available. Priced about the same as Dayton Reference line.

    Don't waste your money on a new set of speakers, you get more mileage from a cheap pair of sneakers. Next phase, new wave, dance craze, anyways it's still rock and roll to me!

      I guess there's not much interest in these...

      They look great to me, though I could do without the gasket, I much preferred the clean frame of the XLS line. Looking at the dimensions, apart from a bit deeper frame, they appear otherwise to be a drop in replacement for the XLS/XXLS. Frame and screw holes look to be the same, which is rare to find. This one at 6 ohm impedance makes for a quite usable sensitivity for the bottom end of a 3-way tower.

      According to Tymphany, they are an improvement of the XLS/XXLS in both thermal handling and mechanically. It's nice to see that the improvements don't come at a price premium.

        I love the way they look. Odd 6 ohm impedance wont make the most of a plate amp. Also an oddly strong breakup for a paper cone. If that breakup was fixed it could be a cool bottom of a 3-way..

          6 ohms is ok by me, Zmin is listed at 4.9 ohms so its really just a light load for a 4 ohm amp. As for the breakup, it looks almost exactly the same as my nomex XXLS 10" (830846), and I had no problems using them in a 3-way with a crossover around 300Hz. My real world measurements were not nearly as severe as the published response , just a narrow band null, but it is there at around 700Hz.

          If Tymphany completes the line in the same way they did with the XLS/XXLS, there will be a few different impedances available, a 12" model, and maybe even aluminum cones as well.
