SDX15 Mk II

Hi,

The design is finally complete and the sample will be built as soon as it can be arranged with the factory.

While we have full target specifications and parameters we will not share these until the sample is Klippel tested. There are, however, a couple of points I will release.

1. We are going to a 4" voice coil.

2. We are shooting for 34+ mm Xmax.

3. We are aiming for 1500 watts power handling.

4. The "at times difficult to work with trim ring" has been abandoned and will be replaced by a functional as well as cosmetically distinctive rubber gasket.

5. Both mounting bolts and threaded inserts will be included with each driver.

6. This will be a heavier driver and so shipping costs will go up a bit.


Thanks to all of you for your patience and continued support.

Bob

Re: SDX15 Mk II

You wanna send an avid (and cheeky) DIY'er out a review model . I have 2 18" pr's sat here, so I could test it in all 3 common types of cabs and post a detailed review. Being a big fan of the 15" AE drivers, I could also compare these to what are my current favourite driver. From what you have posted, this well looks like it could now be superior to that driver, which kinda has me excited

What do ya say

34+ mm Xmax
I take it that means 34 mm or higher? I'll be waiting for for the production T/S parameters to be released so we can see what this sub will do!

The original driver modelled very close to my favourite driver, so hopefully this will now better that one and offer more performance. I'll bet the main area of improvement will be how deep it can go. I too am looking forward to modelling this driver.

Re: SDX15 Mk II

What is the impedance? And what is the box recommendation? I have an 11cuft ported box just waiting for this bad boy.

Re: SDX15 Mk II

As Bob pointed out in the first post, a sample will need to be Klippel tested before we'll find out any more information.

The driver will have dual 2 ohm voice coils.
