Strange that there's no mention of a "new" version of the SE on RE's site, and no information at all about an "SEX" model.
Woofers - RE AUDIO
Also strange that all the specs listed are exactly the same as the regular SE12D2, and their pictures are clearly of SE subs.

That being said, I'm running a pair of RE SE12D4s and they're phenomenal subs.

agreed. I called tech support, and they confirmed that the new version has the exact same specs, except for a slightly larger cutout diameter. I think it's also been documented on these forums that RE does a poor job updating their website. I'll let you all know when I get the sub whether this is bogus or not.

Yup, just called tech support again to confirm this. The SEX series is the new SE stuff.

Yeah, SE's are nice subs. I used to run a SE12 D4, I liked it. I have one of the "new" SE10's. I thought they just changed the logo on the cone, but who knows.

It seem that RE is capitalizing on the forum-famous SE/XXX hybrids; commonly referred to as SEX or SEXX.

Can anyone provide a link to a review or commentary on this sub? I must say, I'm intrigued! Probably not the new, just released sub, but the older hybrids.

And yes, I've tried searching; RE Audio apparently returns too many results (excluding "RE" from the search, apparently), and searching for SE/XXX or SEXXX returns some results that are ah...off topic. :D

Just a quick link or two would be welcomed.

I think they just added the x at then end of the old part numbers. they basket is also different not. and both the new and the old look nice. It seems that the surround is more foam based now from feel, but have not listened to them yet.

So, are these a good deal then? I see retail is about $300, so is $150 a good deal, and anything below that highway robbery?

Edit: I've read a few reviews of the old SE12s. Very impressive.

I would prolly say the ed ov2 is a better deal if you can get them for 75

Thanks for the tip. I"ll look into these as well. But these REs might be what I get if I can get the price to certain range. Otherwise - those EDs and those Phoenix Gold RSDC subs are tempting - and I can two of either of those for the price of one RE SE/X 12.

I'm still like 2 minutes away from "Making an Offer" on ebay for an SE10, coming in at less than $150 shipped...maybe even $120 shipped with an offer?

Picking up a PG before the end of June is also a given :)

Maybe less than that...*crossing fingers*

But yeah, I'm checking the piggy bank to see if I can get PGs too.

Oh no, the addiction is happening again...just when I'd almost unloaded all the gear I had been hoarding. :(

Weren't you a member of SI.n? There was quite a few reviews there of those speakers. I could have swore I recieved an email about the site comming back up, also. :D
