O.k,
the Extremis 6's might be too deep. An email to Adire could tell you this
You can always make baffles so they dont hit the window :emb:
There better woofers than the Kodas.

Yeah, I'm currently working on my door enclosures for my Koda 8s and I won't get them until Tuesday, so I'm glad I actually did some searching and came up with that.

I just wanted to let everyone know that we don't plan on releasing a 4 ohm version of the Extremis 6 as of this time. Also, the Extremis 6 won't match up well with the Koda crossovers. You would need a different crossover design for them to work well. Trust me, I asked. ;)

If you want long throw, you need to have a deep motor structure to support it. We did what we could to keep the motor size down by using neodymium magnets. Imagine if we did a standard overhung motor. To get the same excursion the driver would have been much deeper.

I dont care how deep it is,
All i care about is if i can get the 4 ohm version for the same price as the 8 ohm( or a bit more)
And that it pounds my doors to bits :)
P.S
no one knows about the parthenon !

Also, I know that the poll is favoring our speakers right now. But I want to say that I find polls on forums to only show the local bias more than giving an accurate representation. This is because many times you will find people voting for something just because they own it or know someone who owns it, but has no real world experience (or many times knowledge) of both. I'd recomend instead looking for people's opinions who has owned/experienced one or both of them, and look at the differences between the two.

Get some Koda 8s.2 15" brahmas in the rear, 2 Koda 8's in the center console (stealth)
and 2 Extremis 6's in the front doors or Koda 6's, since there is no 4 ohm Extremis'.
Yeah, i like Adire audio

Hello,



Thanks for the email! Actually, we haven’t announced any details about a 4 ohm Extremis 6 at this time. However, it may be a possibility in the future, so keep an eye on our website.



Just out of curiosity, what is your application? Are you planning on using these in a car audio install?



Thanks,



He beat me to it.

Also sent me this

Hello,



Thanks for the email! We don’t have the exact dimension listed on the website yet but the mounting depth is ~3 5/8”. Yes, the driver will work very well in an IB application in a car audio environment. Please let us know if you have any other questions.



Thanks,



Adire Sales Team

Hey ShynePoe,
how about your new Koda's? Do you like'em?

I just installed my koda comps last night. The woofer is a beast so it is PITA to mount because its soo deep with a massive magnet. I had to use 1.5 mdf spacer just to fit them in. The tweets are very smooth, just the way i like it. The woofers are very strong and delivers hard hitting bass.
I can not speak for RE because I have not heard their comps yet. But the Kodas get my vote. Go Adire

The koda 6 mids arent even 3" deep, which isnt that bad IMO. The motor is just wide :) Ive got a set of koda mids in my doors and i love em.
