First: Are they out yet?

Second: What is the power handling?

Third: Mounting Depth?

Forth: Dont tell me to call or search. Search got me nowhere, and I wont call unless im absolutley desperate for an answer. Asking on the internet is cheaper.

Not out as far as I know. There're only the XXX mids, rated at 150wrms IIRC, but I could be wrong. Mounting depth is a beast, ~3 5/8".

i paid 210$ for them new in box. seen a couple recently on ebay go for about the same. running them full range for the moment, they pound nicely infinite baffle in my undeadened doors.

I'm not sure why people even like these things

they have awful midrange... average midbass and unusable past 1-1.5khz

the Extremis is a 10 times better speaker... the XXX's just are sad :(

People just read "12mm Xmax" and presume it's the best thing since sliced bread.

compared to the factory speaker pictured with it above i'd say so ;) being used together with the (non-xxx) RE component set i haven't noticed it's limitations. been lazy to shop around for passive crossover to match with the xxxs so at the moment they are fed a full range signal.:blush:

Funky pups have 18.5mm one way linear! Don't hate cause you can't feed them enough power. ;)

Im with you on that, but he xxx mids were hyped up to be the MIDBASS monster. I still think they would perform well in IB.

In my use of the driver, it makes a good midbass driver...

That's about it. Higher frequencys are a complete waste of time to try and produce...
