Many of us would be delighted to see the Seaton Submersive HP and JTR Captivator active-2400w being compared with subs like Sub2, DD18+, dual ULS15 and dual SB13Ultras.

Outlaw will be added shortly... I have already talked to their PR firm and I believe we will be able to get that arranged. We can definitely add them to the requested list.

I cannot even get a response from Velodyne. They have completely ignored me, somewhat like HSU.

I will get hold of Ron and talk with him and see what his thoughts are about a review being done.
I am very excited to see these new products hit the market. The app for the plate/rack amps for your apple products is real nice too.
I had a chance to talk with Ron and Thilo both. Even seen the amps personally.

Any clues or hints at the price points the TC's will have?
Ron wouldn't drop any price except ballpark 2700 that's for the powered Sub
I believe somewhere around 1000 for the amp line. The DSP settings are insane, along with a user interface pc based ad well.
Initially there was talks of 4 different powered subs.
I don't know if anyone us aware of who Ron Stimpson is or not. A quick update is he designed the SVS PB 13 ULTRA. Along with the bash and Sledge amps ad well.

Ron did indeed sell out of SVSound... but I am not familiar with his relationship with TC Sounds. I thought TC Sounds was out of business. :huh:

TC Sounds was out of business but is back and have been using Parts Express as there distributor for the last few years or so. If you go to: http://tcsounds.com/ you can see the subs they are working on and the new rip curl amps.

Ron is actually the Vice president/COO of TCsounds. Thilo brought him in as partner to focus in the HT aspect. Since all you DIY guys have been using the subs with amazing results.
I had the chance to speak with both Ron and Thilo at a convention this summer for a few hours. Really plugged there brains a ton about there theories and products.

We need to get those guys on as a sponsor. :yes:
I contacted Ron yesterday and waiting for a response back. I am really hoping they will contribute I. Some way. Atleast with info and testing.
Even when these subs and amps are available they will only be offered through Parts Express.

Ah... I see. Well Parts Express is an affiliate, so in essence they are somewhat of a sponsor. We do very well with Parts Express.

I tried emailing their support email and it rejected it saying the mailbox was full. No big deal though.

Your very welcome. I am glad I could actually contribute in some way to the Forum.
One day I will be posting a theatre build once I can afford too.

I thought those SVS woofers looked like they might be made by TCSounds... Not exactly, but they have some similarities.

Thanks for the info!

TC Sounds did initially make the drivers for SVS but I don't think so anymore. TC Sounds did a lot of OEM work in the past for company's like Sunfire, SoundSplinter, Eclipse and a bunch of others, not so sure how much they do now though.
