^We should PM Andy Wehmeyer to see if the 660GTI's are still in production. Would really like to see these in the test.
Wouldn't mind having a pair of Mark Brooks/Audible Physics new 6.5" Arian mids in this test as well. Initial impressions by Jason (bertholomey) look very promising.
SEAS W18NX-001 NEXTEL - I'm back in town from business, so I'll be able to ship these to Erin this Tuesday (Aug. 14th) to get them on the Klippel, and he'll forward them to Jerry on my dime. Might send some other drivers to Erin as well if he wants them to test.
I also have the B&G Neo3 (non-PDR) tweeters and Hiquphon OW1 tweeters that were discussed to be used as the main tweeters for this test. Could also send the Alpine SPX-17PRO mids and Pioneer TSC-720PRS mids to Erin to Klippel. I'll send whatever he wants to test.
Exactly my thoughts. I am swinging back and forth as to whether to upgrade my 6 inch midbass (one of these likely) or going with an 8 or larger midbass and praying it fits in behind the door card without hacking it up. I would love to try the Scan Rev 8s but they are what 100 mm depth If I go 8 likely the Dyn MW182 or Morel elate 9 (new one). Really want to see what this test reveals. It will be a fun read nonetheless and I thank all involved for making it happen.
Am I the only one that liked the suggestion of putting in a set of mw182 into this test to see what the advantage/disadvantage of the larger driver would be? I guess that would be a totally different type of test tho
111mm deep actually. I'm looking at using two of these per side in the kicks of a stick shift car.
A 22w illuminator would most likely be between 117mm-133mm deep judging from the smaller sizes. 117mm if it matches the depth-diameter ratio of the 18w.
I never heard back from anyone. They are in the kicks...literally. But not connected to anything or powered up...not even screwed down/in yet. One looks like it had an accident with a spray foam can (it did) in the back, but nothing that would effect how it sounds or looks from the front side.
I just thought no one wanted to test them since I never heard back. I would have to find some boxes to ship them in since I threw away the ones they came in after holding on to them in case someone wanted me to send them out for testing.
And if looking at tweeters, the idea of a wideband as a tweeter...I dunno about. I would want a tweeter that is at least as sensitive as the mids being testing so you wouldn't have to pad the mid down to the wideband's level. Just to preserve as much dynamics from the mid as you can get since we are talking about midrange testing.
If the 18Sound went, you have a 92 dB sensitive mid there, pairing it to an 80 something dB sensitive wideband would be a serious handicap in terms of dynamics and output IMO.
The Neo 3 is good because it has decent sensitivity, has independent 3rd party data to verify it's performance, not too expensive- if anyone wants to purchase them, I know a guy who can get wholesale pricing at PE on them (wow, have gone way up in price since I last looked...thanks to neo costs), in production, no afflilation to anyone testing (I know how some guys will cry bias even though we are looking at mids here), and they were a forum boner 10 years back.
you will love the set with dispite the cheesy case
I thought the case was quite nice looking from the pictures; professional. Just like alot of other top brands do with their top offerings. Great protection for shipping. I am curious how these will stack up against the rest just like alot of others apparently.
YO, Jerry and Erin! PLEASE respond to my latest PM's ASAP! Oh...and when you do, Please include your PHONE # for Shipping purposes! Got to get the SEAS W18NX-001's out to you tomorrow (TUESDAY) or it will NOT happen.
Are these going directly to Jerry, or to Erin first???...
I don't have either of your Shipping Addresses or PayPal addys!
Got it, Yo! And I received Jerry's PM as well. Thanks guys...appreciate the quick response. The Seas W18NX-001 pair will be off to Erin today. Please handle with care and let me know when you receive them.
