Has anyone played with them? Andre Perrault (e-speakers.com) has listed a few AC woofers for a while, and I've seen some reviews for their completed speakers in the British press, but my interest wasn't piqued until I saw a model Mr. Perrault doesn't list, the AC-250F1D, in the latest PE flyer. If the specs are accurate, this woofer sounds like a really nice alternative for home or large car midbasses. 0.22mH inductance per coil and 8mm xmax!

Yikes, I don't think my Paseo could handle the size of such woofers... though it'd be cool to say I had an all Aurum Cantus set-up.

I find it hard to believe they're getting 0.22mH a coil without a proper motor. Unless, of course, the specs are simply wrong. That they spec a mathematically-impossible Qts is hardly encouraging...

I think the line starts at 130mm (5.25") and tops out at 250mm. Check e-speakers.com or partsexpress.com.

still have em sitting in the box

just finished my doors/pillars ( the cosmetic is just okay got tired of sanding lol)

need a few more cans of SEM graphite tonight and I should be done finally

I think I may try the new peerless exclusive 4" and the fostex FE108EZ to compare to my current vifa pl's

I think im going to stick with the XLS since its only midbass, that and it has 10mm xmax :)

Newtitan,

I have yet to go back & audition the DLS IR8 again... I just recently found out where the vehicle sits (local shop) so I may go over there very soon...

But I'll tell you this... after a few weeks of tweeking & lots of referrence material, the XLS kick major ARS!!! Tons of impact & output... def put to shame the old OZ200L I had & I tied that DLS vehicle in pts when I competed a few months back, with the OZ CS130 mids & 200L subs as midbass...

So I am feeling pretty confident in saying the XLS are going to be as good if not best the IR8 in midbass...

The 8's sure "look" nice, but with such a low Q i would certainly forget about it if you're considering using it in an IB app... The Q is just too low, that thing just screams port me... lol
