    I can't answer any of these questions, and I ask that you refrain form asking more of such. You can email me if you want at support at tcsounds dot com (not typed out to prevent spam). It’s nothing personal, I’m excited you have interest in these kinds of drivers. As they do progress more and more into the market people will realize the distortion advantages, but we try and keep OEM customer relationships private.

    I can say the LMS-4000 just got a major revision this weekend and you can read about it here:

    Now called the LMS-4000 V2

    ~400 for the 12
    ~500 for the 15

    you'll have to wait at least 6 weeks for the sub to arrive, maybe sooner.

    we're not taking preorders just yet.

    difficult to say right now, most aliguments dont get the linear coils correct, we'll have to actaully build test boxes for entire accuracy.

    6-8 cubic feet sealed would not be out of the question.

    Well since it will have the DVC option, it makes it somewhat more practical for car use. Still needs a huge box for it to perform to its optimum.

    Actually, quite the opposite. It called for a slightly smaller box than the first LMS-4000.

    I believe the T/S are posted. The Q is 0.4’ish which would allow the for a 3-4 cubic foot box for the 12” without a problem. The interesting thing about the linear coil opposed to a non linear coil is the Q of the driver does not increase as the voltage increases, in other words, most drivers overcompensate with lower Q because of the nonlinear Bl over displacement relationship, but the linear coil remains very constant so this is not a problem.

    Beefing up the motor means it will work in a smaller box contrary to what you may think.

    Why? Its an audio related question, no reason the guy cant ask it.
    If the TC Sounds guys dont like the topic, they can just stay out of it.
    Thats one of the pitfalls of having manufacturers active on the forums...LOTS of benefits to it, but in situations like this.......

    Basically, the OP should be able to ask whatever he wants, I dont see anything wrong with the question.


    Or, I could sum it up by saying: I agree with Squeak.
