  • What driver are they using?

    Provided Link: AV123


    Looking around I found this subwoofer page...
    The driver looks familiar, but I can't place it.

    Don't listen to me - I have not sold any $150,000 speakers.

      I don't follow their products closely but with that thick top plate, it could be an XBL^2 enabled driver. That would mean it may be sourced from Destijl Engineering. The CAC build house that also does XBL^2 uses stacked plates to build up their top plates.

        I'm just that guy. www.sru.edu Rock Solid.

        "It has been remarked that if one selects his own components, builds his own enclosure, and is convinced he has made a wise choice of design, then his own loudspeaker sounds better to him than does anyone else's loudspeaker. In this case, the frequency response of the loudspeaker seems to play only a minor part in forming a person's opinion."

          Of course, we all know from a recent discussion here that the Chinese can't make a decent amp. ;)

            Front plate on the magnet looks like TC Sounds.

                  Several things come to mind. The magnet structure looks like a TC, Adire front-plates are not as steep an angle. The dustcap/cone look like the old 'mobile' Eclipse cones, w/o the logo. Frame is of the 12 spoke variety, which is not normally used in the TC's I've seen. Usually the four-spoke 'classic' frame is used in TC woofers. I would think it's an Eminence OEM, personally. Is it Underhung?

                    Well, actually, TC made the Eclipse woofers you refer to, and they also make a 12 spoke frame, so your observations seem to be summing it fairly well.

                      My TC-built AV12 woofer has a 12-spoke cast basket.

                      I say it's TC Sounds.
