Hi guyz,

I needed shallower mid than the ID X65 so I got these instead:


^ don't you love how it looks from the back? :p


^ compared to the ID... Shallower - I LOVE IT



^ front and back comparo

Ohh yes, I forgot to show this:



4 ohm BABY!!!!!

That's all for now. ;)

Placed the order on September 1st and those arrived yesterday. 12,500 miles from Germany to Tahiti :p

Wasn't in a hurry but I'm eager to play with these... Going IB in doors with the ability to Xover 1/3 oct lower compared to the X65 and yet having 3dB more in overall output according to WinISD... Should mate better with my horns :cool:

I'm jealous! :) What website did you order from if you don't mind me asking?

Kelvin, would you mind posting up some impressions/comments once installed? I think Mikey7182 is the only guy on here that's said anything about them.

Congrats Kelvin. With a Qts of 0.27 wouldn't they do better in a small sealed enclosure in your door or in kicks?

Very curious to see how you like them and how low they play relative to the ID's. Congrats on the new buy.

I'll be crossing around 100Hz so I don't think Qts would be too important.
Kicks are out of question coz I'm planning a front mounted IB sub in the passenger footwell... :D

Crap... I wanted to install my drivers today but my soldering station just died (don't know how???). Guess I have to wait for next week-end :(

Wow - impressive looking woofer. How do you plan on using it?

:blush: Did not have time to install it yet... This time I'm not being lazy, it's just that I had too many things to do.

Next week-end for sure :D Don't worry, I'm as eager as you to hear what those drivers are about...

The good news is that I can fit my door panel back now :D
The bad news is... nah, there's no bad news. These ROCKS :cool:

Strange thing is that I needed to do some a 0.1ms T/A adjustment in order to keep my previous soundstage. HP went from 100Hz 12dB/oct to 80Hz 12dB/oct without diffusing the midrange. Mids are still playing up to 1.6kHz though.
Horns gain went up quite a bit too since I'm getting close to 3dB theoritical output.

I'm FOREVER converted to Pro Audio mids :p

Also needed a slight adjustment in the L/R EQ.

How does it sound? I would like to do some more seating time before posting a review but I don't think I will be going back to the ID X65 ;)

Forgot to take a picture of it installed but since I need to install some speaker tweaker, I'll take some next time.
