Default TM65 mkII

As many of you who are clicking on this link are already wondering:

A) I said I was not going to continue manufacturing TM65's.
B) See A.

Yes and yes. Read literally - my employees were not going to Build 6.5" woofers anymore. Doing so was too tedious and too costly.

However, my recent aliance with the Build house that produces the M25 tweeters has spurred me towards a more pefected IB 6.5" woofer. The build house in question is owned and operated by a previous lead engineer of a different build house. Said build house is the top tier of their country with pricing to match that of any other high-end manufacturer (Germany, Sweeden, France, etc).

The fantastic quality of the M25's have prompted me to continue making speakers for the DIY community despite what I said earlier of getting out of the DIY industry as a whole. The latter was said because I [me, my company, etc] was not going to assemble any more small drivers. Larger drivers of sizes at least 10" through 24" drivers are not a problem. However, the smaller drivers are an issue regarding the time it takes to build them. The new build house that manufacturers the M25's is XBL^2 certified and I trust their manufacturing abilities along with their fit and finish.

So with the latter being said, I have designed a successor to the TM65 which will be produced by the same company that produces the M25's.

Same goals as before but with improved performance. 2.39" deep mounting depth. Higher Qts to yield better "IB" (mounted in a vehicles door) performance. Custom tooled cast alunimum basket with integrated rain shield to keep water off of the back side of the cone. Push terminals. Lower inductance optimization with multiple shorting rings for higher frequency extension while not sacrificing low end performance. Single 2 Ohm operation as 99.9% of TM65 D4 customers wired the coils in parallel.

I hope to keep pricing to/below $149 per driver if not lower. I will know more once the manufacturer gets back to me with production costs.

Here are a few renderings of the driver. FWIW, the cone will have our logo raised in the poly material just like our DS4-18:

That looks awesome. I was wanting to try some of the TM65, but it looks like I'll just have to get in on the (presumptive?) pre-order on these instead!

Wow…value for a used TM65v1 just DROPPED. LOL

In any case, I am hoping that even though this new woofer will be a little deeper then the v1, that it might still utilize the same cut out diameter and maybe even screw pattern as the v1 just so those of us who have the v1 and want to upgrade can do so with minimum install changes.

Of course if keeping those parameters the same are going to effect the SQ design of the v2, then please simply ignore my idea.

Damn it, I haven't even gotten around to trying out the tM65's I picked up and my M25's haven't even arrived either. Now you have me thinking of getting in on a preorder for these. Damn you.

Thank you!

I've been saving one pair of TM65 as a back up for my install, while debating what to do about a top notch shallow mid bass for a dear friend's fox Mustang. Those require a very shallow door Speaker if you aren't allowed to hack the cards and Build them out substantially.

Dilemma over--my friend can now rock an almost all SI install: TM65, M25, and a Mag V3. I guess I'll have to go with 10f's for the mids, although the TM65's work very well in a two way in my install.

Good news.

I was wondering what the success of the m25 would bring. Be interesting to see the difference between the 2 drivers. Good to see cost friendly drivers that are of higher end materials.

You could buy them BNIB for like $220 shipped which was the price he sold them for on clearance. =]

Plus 2.3" depth on the originals will work in practically any vehicle compared to the proposed 2.9" depth on these ones.
