    Do you have soft parts for 5100?
    I have 2 pro 5100s that are having issues. They are not vlown, but one side of the coil acts like a short until it gets enough power, thEN they are fine. But it drives me nuts.
    Btw running in home theater

    I've had similar issues with Audiopulse drivers and was able to determine that it was lead continuity. If you can carefully work back the epoxy in the area of the solder joint, you can try to reflow it or add more solder. Can be a real PITA, though.

    I should mention that this driver does not exhibit this issue whatsoever. I tested it extensively for that specific symptom and it is solid. The only reason I am even willing to let this driver go is that I am using a McCauley 6174 instead. Sent you an email with pic links and some info on the parts I have available. I will respond much faster through PM than email. Thanks!

    C'mon guys, don't make me put this on feeBay. I would rather someone in the community benefit from this monster.

    Bottom dollar $675 shipped, in original packaging.

    knowledge is powerful but imagination is exponentially powerful!

    experience is key! otherwise life is uneventful and pointless..

    keep in mind you have a great mind and remind yourself to be mindful.

    Re: TC Sounds Underhung NeoRadial 18

    Thanks, fellas.

    I should build up a couple different tops and just keep this. The 18" is just more than I need.

    Was thinking about doing a soft suspension 12" or 15" for lower power musical setups.
