I heard a rumor that Dayton is going to be coming out with some new RS speakers. Like dvc and unshielded midbass drivers...any validity?

I read over on ECA that they are finalizing some details on the 6 & 7" unshielded 4ohm... so those may be the 1st to show up & the 8" to follow...

I emailed Parts Express and they said: "There will be some 4-ohm, non-shielded versions in a couple months. They'll sort of be dressed up as car audio drivers, but are essentially the same in construction as the regular ones."

Does unshieled = "debucked"? So that the driver will be maybe be ~2.5" deep (7" version)?

Be nice if they'd stay around $40 too.

That was the whole thing, having them without the second magnet. I think the mounting depth of the unshielded 7" was more than 2.5" though.

the debucked 7" is 2 7/8" deep. dayton should have done this long ago but probably never expected so much demand from the car audio community. the debucked versions should be cheaper in terms of shipping costs (lighter) and actual build cost (no extra shield or magnet). im really looking forward to them, sounds like they're gonna 'dress' them up a bit, i hope this doesn't add too much to the cost, they should cost LESS than the originals.

As long as "dressing" them up doesn'd include slapping on a Mondo magnet to increase sales to car audio people who shop by magnet!
