Item(s) for Sale:

Custom proto neo 8"


Item(s) Description/Condition:
Item is mint as it can be being one of it's kind. Huge neo motor capable of near limitless excursion ( lol ). Neo does need charged but it has residual charge in it. Basket and motor are both custom tooled, basket can be modded for many options as well. Pretty rare softparts with the adire coil, I hate to part with this really.. but I simply have no use for it.
As it sits:
- With spacers between the top assembly and motor .. excursion potential is nearly limitless
- a .5" spacer would allow for 2" rearward clearance
- has a 7.5" spider landing and 8" can be modded to work.
- can be reconed for a 3" p-p, the basket can fit a 4" coil and can be tooled to fit most any motor.
- rms on the Adire Audio tumult 3" coil is roughly 600-750rms, it's internally seriesed to 8 ohm but can be changed back to dual 4 with a simple cut of the wires.


Price:
250+shipping or I'd be willing to trade it towards amps or different subs.


Shipping and Miscellaneous Item Information:
shipping cost depends on zip, actual shipping.

nick at IA can, phil said he wouldn't charge much over cost of shipping if I recall. Fi should be able to as well. Possible jacob from sundown as he has a proto neo sub if memory serves me right.

a little while back maybe. It was on a few forums.
Charge it by sending it to a company capable of charging it. Simple as that.

I think you guys are mistaking this one for another sub with the same custom machined style basket. That one wasnt a neo though, if i recall correctly

That is a **** 8 incher, if I wasn't broke I would have jumped on this just for the custom-tooled basket.

basket can fit about any motor, previous owner had a few adapter plates made for it, think he used to have it on a tc-9 and a goliath motor as well.

it will but highly inefficient. specs as it sits without charge:

Re = 7.6718 ohms
Fs = 23.1073 Hz
Zmax = 29.8816 ohms
Qes = 2.5447
Qms = 7.3668

Efficiency = 0.0028 %
Sensitivity= 66.4627 dB @1W/1m


How did it lose the magnetism? Once charged is it going to lose it again later?

as all neos do, mostly heat from extreme overpowering or overpowering in general for very prolonged periods of time. This one was never "fully" charged to begin with though as it was/is a proto. If you'll ever notice, the guy that runs the 99z that competes ( i forget his name ) has to get his charged every so many competitions where he powers it insanely for the runs. So in short, no it won't just lose charge.. but yes it will IF you give it insane amounts of power over a prolong period of time. should have no problem with up to around 4-5k for my guesstimate. Cooling on it is beastly.

---------- Post added at 10:24 PM ---------- Previous post was at 10:24 PM ----------

it has an insanely low FS for an 8 capable of going even lower after full charge as well.

Looks to be an awesome IB sub that you could throw some power at.

I originally bought it to run sealed in a console type enclosure in my truck but I ended up with an extended cab so with all that room I decided to go with more cone area. I may end up keeping it if it doesn't get much interest and get it turned into an 18", lms basket would be pretty beastly I think.

My assumption is the basket is removable to charge the motor?

JL Audio
07-11-2011, 05:10 AM
indeed, you can take the top assembly completely off and add mods to it such as the spacers I referred to in first post.. adding almost unlimited excursion potential or you can take the top assembly itself and put it on different motors.

After talking with the creator of the sub/motor itself though.. he said it should have plenty of charge left. I have no way to test though.

Motor fits 3" coil?

According to Thilo Neo should NOT degrade significantly over time or from heat in any audio related application. The tolerances are just way over what we do with them.

US Accoustics 1000F (Zed made) for trade?

JL Audio
07-23-2011, 11:40 AM
motor fits 3" correct, currently houses a tumult coil from an adire sub. What you said is the same thing nathan funk said, the guy who actually made/created the sub and basket. He said he thinks the previous owner was incorrect and it shouldn't need charged at all as it wasn't out of his possession no time before I got it.

No real need for trades now except subs at this point.


sidenote, the basket fits up to a 4" coil so someone could technically make a 4" coil 8" subbie without much work haha.
