Thanks for the quick write-up. I'm planning on ordering some of these myself for a new project (been out of the car audio world for years).

I have sent a quick email and made a few comments on instagram inquiring into the shipping dates of the speakers but have not yet heard back. Hopefully Nick can post an update soon, Im sure he will when he gets a chance. Cant wait to get these back in my car.

I just ordered a set last night. I was going to use Morel 692's but the SI's appear to be a significant upgrade.

I'm also waiting for the next shipment of BM MK V subwoofers. Nick stated it would be "soon".

I was the first to get these mids in and can confirm they are very powerful and sound great. I too am awaiting my set and cant wait.

Has anyone heard on when these will ship? They stated Jan but now it's almost march and I have not seen mine.

I emailed the sales from the site but no response.

Mine just shipped. Ordered it July 2nd, 2018. Should arrive 3/5/19 via FedEx to California.

Order #2677
Whoa. July 2? That's 7 months!

I didn't get my order in until 3 weeks ago lol.

I hope I get mine this year!

That shipment that was supposed to come in at the end of Feb must have just landed. I hope so. And I hope he ordered extra!

Nick just posted this on Facebook in response to an inquiry about the TM MKIII and when they will be shipping:

"we have enough for more than everyone who pre-ordered. About 3x extra than were pre-ordered.

We have started shipping them already but the rest of the drivers are coming in two weeks."

I got my pair on Sat. Build looks great too bad my current adapters on my VW GTI did not work so have some on order so have not put any power to them yet.

Once I get them in and running will post my thoughts.

Any opinions on how these compare to the mk2 in a 3 Way?
The awesome midbass performance is still there with the new mkIII version as was the previous mkII version but the frequency range between 1,000 and 10,000 is massively improved with the mkIII. The new mkIII version is extremely clean all the way from 45 Hz up to over 9,000 Hz in-car. The previous version had cone breakup at/around 2,000/2,500 Hz. And the new carbon fiber mkIII is a solid 2 to 3 dB more efficient than the previous version so it is louder of the box all the way up through its total output capabilities.

Nick, do you have a sealed enclosure recommendation for the mk3 ??

Also could you please explain how it plays clean so low even though it has an Fs of 98hz ??

THANKS!!!

This doesn't answer your question, but I figured someone may want the info.

I ran the mkII's in dads truck in .40 cuft3 ported 2 x 11.5" and they were spectacular. At one point, we had them playing 45hz/300hz and they were playing every note. They were run off of a Audison Duo 260x2. I'm so excited to get the III's installed and playing. I'm going .50 cuft3 ported on 150w each, Zapco power this time.

Has anyone had or know of a comparison between the SI and Audio Frog? I am looking at a 2 way and these are the two drivers I have had my eye on. Over the weekend I listened to both the AF GB and GS line. The GBs were in a demo truck and were flat out incredible. The GS were on the sound board and very good and I was able to a/b them against a few other drivers the shop had. Of course not in a car, but sounded good. Im not sure I can swallow the GB price but would like to hear how the SI MK3 would compare to either the GB or the GS? I ask simply because I would not have a chance to listen to the SI if I go that route.

In either case, they would end up active. If the 45 to 9000 in car is true for the MK3, that helps with tweeter selection. I am not as worried about finding a tweeter that I would have to xover lower. I already have some nice ring radiators from old builds that I could use especially since I wouldnt be worried about xover below 3k.

You aint kidding brother! I am about to update my review with more details but now that I have my own and they are broken in...... holy hell are they amazing! The mid-range is so clear and clean with tons of mid-bass kick.
Running all SI components/subs and it has to be the most playful system I have built.

What exactly does this mean? If they had enough for everyone who pre-ordered 3 weeks ago, doesn't this mean that everyone who pre-ordered should have their stuff by now?
