    I'm in no hurry to separate or sell. If they sell sweet. If not I still have some bad *** subs to stare at. They've been sitting for a couple years. A few more won't hurt.

    coming from someone who designs woofers.. the XXX is a much more linear driver. unless you are sealing the 5200 its not going to sound better.. the white papers are all over the internet. there isn't one thing special about the TC driver not ONE.

    Thats a first.. Adire nor RE had any intention on competing against tc. Hell not even the lms. Comparing apples to rasins. A decade ago and here in 2016 a 5200 will walk a xxx. In every category. The bra and og xxx were great subs but they were never designed to go after TC... I congratulate u on designing speakers but you don't have to be a designer to clearly see different lvl subs for different purposes. Comparing 3" sql sub to 4" monsters then gonna try an say they are on save lvl and offer nothing more? Lol. Not even in same atmosphere much less lvl. Also, the dd 2515 is just as good as a 9915 u know right.. No difference just hype.. TC need not a cheerleader they to this date molesting new age stuff. The og xxx.was nice not lms, 5200,5400 nice but compared to the new paper weight xxx of today they were gods.

    PS ur.video is pointless. Thilo made major changes once this happened. Ttitanium cones was just one of a few things he started using. Thilo set that test up you know that right?? He wanted to confirm what he already knew may be an issue. So he made it stronger. Called r&d. Hit a bra or xxx with a clamped 5k.. Cone want just fold loI. Every part would fail and fail catastrophicly.

    Ill be putting two skar 4500.1s for testing..
    I know for a fact the xxx took 4kw no problems for burps.
    5200s where a great woofer but def not end all.. Fyi they are definitally worth 1kw for a pair..

    Re: TC Sounds 5200 series 18's

    To build my woofer it costed 120 to tool the coils pretty much the same as the motor. They wheren't shelf. The topplate was custom as well 30% thicker than the option they offered and it had to be done because of the coil. Its tricky though because the. Larger tge magnetic gap the lower the flux density but ultimatly it had to be larger becauae the l was so low. Its a fine line..

    Im talking about the xbl^2 motors. Fyi

    Its a lglc woofer with a low inductance coil.
    Even though i didnt opt for shorting rings which the soon to be production will have it honestly doesn't need it. Im going to add it to lower power compression and help the flow of air in the gap. Its doesnt have any real sound signature its just transparant which lots of people don't like. Despite the higher qes its very controlled.
    Ive tried several builds from a very flat bl curve to very efficent drivers this one is power hungry but its really is one of the loudest low distortion drivers ive built or heard.
    If you like the apline type x or jbl gti or id max this driver makes um its ***** and sounds excellent..
