    12" TC9 Prototype

    Item(s) for Sale:

    12" Sample built by TC Sounds for IAS.


    Item(s) Description/Condition:

    Brand new. Single 4ohm with copper in the motor for low inductance, low distortion. Looooong, quiet stroke. I don't have the specs on this one but I know from lots of experience with TC9's that it will work great in anything from small sealed to medium vented enclosures. Doesn't need a ton of power but it will soak it up.


    Price:

    $275 shipped, CONUS.


    Shipping and Miscellaneous Item Information:

    CONUS only, please


    Item Pictures:

    Nope. Looks similar, though. Different Mms, different coil, different top plate, different copper treatment.

    This is one of those uncool things you don't do in someone's For Sale thread. No big deal, just saying.
