Re: LMS-5400 buy-in... Ilkka test Thread!

The 5400 doesn't need 7.5ft^3 for a nice low natural Q.

Re: LMS-5400 / RL-p18" buy-in

I'm currently modeling 1)TC Sounds 18" LMS-5400 2) 18"Cadence CW18-951-4 and 3) Soundsplinter RL-P18" in the WinISD. The three subs produce similar results under my "normal" listening conditions. I purchased and have used the Cadence speaker for a number of years and will be receiving my newly purchased TC Sounds sub this week for experimentation.
I don't have reason enough to contribute to experimentation on the Soundsplinter RL-P18". I could never justify adding that third high dollar sub. Having 3 of the most useable 18" subs ever produced would be way beyond my ability to comprehend. The TC Sounds and Cadence are enough for me to play with.

Re: LMS-5400 / RL-p18" buy-in

I just got info from Mike. The RL-p 18" would be $421 (shipping included).

Anyone interested?

Looks like you've been busy br Ilkka! My $50 will stay in the pot if it comes down to the 18" RL-p.. no problemo.

Me too, for the RL-p18, 40 USD (net fees you would receive) I think this driver will be very interesting as it would be the first choice for many...

No no Steve, you got me wrong. The LMS-5400 will be tested. Although I haven't still got the exact shipping quote, I'm estimating we may already have enough money for it.

But since very few Shacksters have promised to donated, I thought to add the SS RL-p 18" in the mix. Mike gave us a very good deal ($421 including shipping) so here's your chance if you would like to see it being tested.

That's another question I have, except I think I already know the answer. That's a very good deal and one worth pursuing. Ad $25 to the 18" RL-p list from me then. You might consider changing the first post to reflect the new turn in events? This would be some very good information and two nice options to ad to your master list for many to take advantage of.

Thank you very much Steve! Though I would hope that especially people who didn't already promise to donate towards the LMS would open their wallets now... Come on, let's make the next measuring session better and bigger than ever before!

Re: LMS-5400 / RL-p18" buy-in

Some bad news. I finally got the shipping quote from the TC-Sounds: $534 (for shipping alone) for the LMS-5400 18"!! That's through DHL because USPS doesn't carry +70 lbs packages.

So unfortunately it looks like the LMS-5400 test won't happen.

I am going to order the SS RL-p 18" instead. Possibly two so that I could also try an IB setup. Would this interest some IB people?
