That's probably the best point made in this whole thread. If you seal and dampen a door properly, they will do magical things. No speaker will perform optimally in a plug and play scenario. This may also be the discrepancy in performance. I never recommend buying a high end speaker, without properly treating the door first. Would you mount a specific sealed enclosure sub to your rear deck? Even though they work in any scenario, they're much better in an ideal scenario. Actually amazing, IMO.

I used the word scenario way too many times in this thread.

I did send a 2nd email over the weekend and copied Nick’s email as well. Nick responded quickly (even took the time to send me a reply on a Sunday) and sent my order out on Monday morning. They’re on the way...

I just installed my mkIIs with the small-headed screws they came with - no problems, the surround is clear.

Very solid review. Though I'm not surprised to hear it about these drivers.

Install and tuning are the key to great sound

Will these ever be available again? If so, any idea when?

Just need to make a decision on what to use so we can move forward with the install.

This is actually one of Nick’s communication challenges, he gets tons of emails, Facebook messages, forum messages, etc and it is hard to stay on top of all of those communications. Not an excuse but it is definitely challenging.

Thanks for the response, gentlemen. Unfortunately I'm "one of THOSE guys" that doesn't do Facebook for a variety of reasons.

If I don't get a response soon I'll try giving a call during normal business hours.

Thanks again.

Most of you probably already know this if you follow SI on Facebook, but for those that don't, here is Nick's reply:

"Billy,

  We do not have any more TM65's in stock. We have no plans to continue production of those but we are working with along side another designer to bring out a 6.5/tweeter set with a passive crossover. We will keep our Facebook page updated with any/all progress on those.

"


It's a bummer that the TM65-III will no longer be available. Such a great driver for a great price. Hindsight is 20/20...I should've bought some extras sooner.

I didn't ask about the M3 mids or M25 tweeters. I can only assume that Nick will not be continuing production of those either. But again, just an assumption.

I'm curious to see what the new passive component set is all about, but I'm more interested in individual raw drivers.

For those of us here, I think it seems a bit strange for SI to be coming out with a set that includes passive XOs when relatively inexpensive DSPs are so prevalent. But I guess it must be what the general public/mainstream car audio buyers want? It must be the case, as several manufacturers such as Audiofrog also offer passive X/Os.

Time will tell, but I hope the new component set is the shiznit and successful.

For those that have the TM65-III's, enjoy them you lucky [email protected]@rds!

Looks like it's true. No more TM65. Really curious why?

Yeah, I don't get the passive thing either. Seems like a step back in time, but I guess we'll see. I sure do hate to install drivers knowing no backups are available though. Tempted to sell my set of MkIIIs and go with a set of SBs.

Default Re: Stereo Integrity TM65 mkIII impressions

I talked to Nick from SI recently - I’m not speaking for him, but it appears to be a business decision. He did an analysis of his sales for the last couple years, and he evaluated many of the communications he has received over that time period.

The analysis showed that a large percentage of the folks who contact them are looking for a solution that isn’t about raw drivers and active processors. He has had guys on the phone - about to give cc info ask if crossovers are included. He explained that the M25’s, M3’s, and TM65’s are raw drivers that are intended to be utilized in an active set up. Well, that isn’t what the customer wanted.

He seems to be looking in a different direction - focusing on the potential larger customer pool than those on DIYMA, and he has decided to not attempt to support both models - active raw driver model and the 2 way with crossover model.

That's really weird and I am just thinking out loud here. If he in fact has more people calling him to do a comp set versus raw drivers, wouldn't it be easier to get a passive designed and built versus scraping the tweeter and the Mid. Unless he is thinking some budget line that priced lower than the set but I would do a high end raw driver line and lower end consumer comp set.

You make good points, and I’m sure those items were factored into his thinking. It is fairly easy for me to say, “why don’t you just do ‘x’, or wouldn’t it make more sense to do ‘y’?”, but he has been in this industry for a while, and he has more information than I do about what he is seeing in the industry.

Cost may be another factor - it takes a good amount of capitol and the ‘guarantee’ of future revenue to maintain a couple different inventory lines - and that might not be advantageous at the moment along with his home audio ventures.

I am sure it also has to do with finances. It takes a lot of upfront cost to have multiple products sitting on a shelf. He probably has to make a choice of what is going to make him the most money and sit on the shelf the shortest amount of time.

Now he could potentially do some pre-sale stuff like he has in the past, but that can cause issues as I am sure a bunch of us have seen. I personally don't think the issues that those can cause are worth that effort.

Default Re: Stereo Integrity TM65 mkIII impressions

And the MOQ (minimum order quantity) can get expensive. Think about a speaker that might cost $100 for a nice round number, doesn’t sound so bad until you figure out that many build companies have a MOQ of 200 units and you all of a sudden figure out how expensive it is to carry inventory. And inventory cost is also known as carrying cost and with anything inventory, you want to minimize those costs while having product available to sale. Not easy decisions.
