Thanks and so sorry about the lack of posts. This is the driver I have been paying a lot of attention with lately. I have the prototype and have been working on cabs for a while. I have narrowed it down to 2 speakers and will offer both.
One is a standmount and the other an XRS style floorstander.
The drivers are amazing and they are well worth the effort to get them done. My prototypes are in black so I can't make pics yet. I have all the baskets at the powder coater to get them done. It looks like a month away for them to get in. I have a good size order made up.
As for the price. The tooling for the 8's have helped me out a lot in regards to the costs so the finished speakers will be a great value especially for an alnico based full range speaker.
The standmount is 20"H x 10"W x 14D. Stand choices are easy and this is a more traditional or modern looking cabinet.
The Floorstander is 35Hx13Wx9.5D.
Both are vented designs and they are 93dB spl.
Looks like $1450 and $2350 a pair. I will have an AC pre order discount on them.
I may take pictures as well with the black basket.
