    8" TB Underhung NEO Midbass D8

    Item(s) for Sale:

    Tang Band prototypes (I think), I haven't been able to find these anywhere else. All if the info on the boxes and labels is hand written and the serials are low number, not a common thing with TB. There's a new version on Parts-Express with the big ceramic magnet but it's not quite the same. As far as I can tell they never released this version for production. They should have because these are awesome. Of course, if they would have, the price would have been astronomical simply because of the fuckery going on with cornering the market on neo.

    Here is a link to the closest version but it also has the big ceramic magnet. --> W8-1722 - 8? Paper Woofer - TB SPEAKER CO., LTD.


    Item(s) Description/Condition:

    These are BNIB and perfect. Dual 8ohm so you can have your precious final 4ohm load, lol. Really clean sounding driver that would be great for a two-way if off-axis concerns were not an issue. Shorting rings, single spider, rubber surround and all that. Distortion is just not present until you lock up the suspension.


    Price:

    $250 shipped, CONUS.


    Shipping and Miscellaneous Item Information:

    UPS

    Who over ends up with these is going to smile ear to ear the first time they hear what comes out of them. Even the treble sounds nice, lol.

    Oh yeah, they would be perfect for that type of 2way. You could choose just about any crossover point and slope you wish, within reason.

    I planned on using them in a 2 channel setup at home but I found another 8" that I favor slightly more than this one.
