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?
Now how in the world are you going to test an IB???

Wow, that is an insane shipping quote. Definitely get that Rl-p instead.

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

$534, mmpf! Well I guess that takes care of that then. Ever think about moving to the States Ilkka

I think I'm going to move on to the SDX myself. There's something about that driver that keeps calling out buy me.

EDIT> I see you already have a couple SDX's on the way Ilkka. I'll be looking forward to your measurements and impressions. You know the thing weighs 49lbs, but it doesn't look like it has that much weight to it though? The magnet doesn't look as big as others we've all seen... I dunno?

Yeah, 49 lbs seems a lot when considering that for example the TC-2000 is "only" 35.5 lbs...

Let's hope it is a good sign.

LMS will happen after all!

I have some VERY good news.

With the help from my very special friend, I managed to arrange a cheaper transportation for the LMS-5400 18" driver.

And while were at it, I also ordered two of their TC-VMP passive radiators - naturally 18".

Even though the shipping was cheaper than $534, the total quote was still a pretty big pile of money. So if you wish to donate and support my tests, please do.

Thus far I haven't got a single donation from the Home Theater Shack. What does that mean? Don't you want to see new and exciting drivers/subwoofers being tested? Without some support from you guys, my tests may not last very long. Think about that for a second...

Yes good idea, it's my intention to do so this afternoon. As of now we're looking at $350 so far.

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.
Have you got enough money?

But since very few Shacksters donated, I thought to add the SS RL-p 18" in the mix.
Very few or none?

Me too, for the RL-p18, 40 USD (net fees you would receive)
It sounds like you are running this in two places and some may have committed from there. Had you not ran it there and only ran it here, would they not have still donated? They are still Shacksters, are they not?

I think we have a small misunderstanding.

Those "donations" you quoted, were just "promises", not actual money transfers. I hadn't even told my Paypal account at that point. And the calculations I made, were based on those promises, not actual money transfers.

So thus far I haven't got a single donation (=real money transfer) from Home Theater Shack(sters). That's the sad truth.

A few from our own Finnish forum, but not nearly enough for the LMS-5400.

Ilkka, I am holding my word whatever you are testing....I think we should all practically encourage you and not always wait for "free results". I will proceed within days

Re: LMS will happen after all!

Illkka,
That is awesome news. So are you going to build something similar to my setup?
Make it no larger than 7.5cu ft with 2 PRs . A bit selfish here, but I am dreaming of seeing test results by you on my sub!!!!!
Think about it, 10 cu ft is a bit too large for most people. 7.5 like mine, now we are talking.

For others reading this thread, here is the reference
Jai's LMS 5400/Passive radiator design.
Thanks,
-Jai
