    2012 Frame / Cone -- First Built Woofer

    Prototype motor paired with new 12" frame, 9.25" spider (what we use on Z v.3 18s now), and the new cone / surround. I literally JUST finished it so I cannot play it until tomorrow. That being said... it won't QUITE be able to use ALL of the clearance we have -- and that is great -- should be INCREDIBLY rugged and hard to damage

    For those not current on all of these parts -- they are ALL prototype parts. They are not in production yet. Production parts will start appearing 1Q 2013.

    does remind me of a holees, lol. I like the dark rugged look of this a lot more though. Are these surrounds and baskets going to mated to an SA motor too?

    You're in luck though, I've been looking for a 1+ kW 10" for my truck with high excursion to move some more air. Hook me up with a proto brotha!

    I did get a little too happy with it last night when I first fired it up -- you'll hear a small metallic sound because of some slight damage I did to it then (woops!). Either way I was still able to get a good test out of it for this video and show it in action -- with more testing to come as we get more prototypes together. The good news is I'll be able to make it even tougher on production thanks to my mistake =)

    I am kicking myself a bit for getting crazy last night with it, haha... what I did was push it hard enough to exit the coil completely from the gap by a large amount -- the 12" frame supports 50mm of one-way travel not counting frame thickness... 59mm with frame thickness... and 71mm with vent spacer thickness added -- minus 8mm for triple joint ring so we can go 63mm one-way before bottoming the ring... and we have 62.5mm in the motor... so I had it up around 60mm one-way (which is actually 5mm PAST surround linearity)... which makes the coil about 1/2" past the gap *laughs*

    So when it came back down it knicked the top plate and knocked loose 1/2 of one voice coil (the coil is an 8-layer bifilar which is wound as a quad; so you can knock out 1/2 of a coil by breaking one wire) and this wire is rubbing on the top plate now making that metallic sound (I can see the loose wire through the vent spacer -- WOOPS!!!).

    Either way I have some ideas to minimize that possibility; although, I must admit, I was being totally careless with it to do that!

    Needless to say it was pretty crazy and just me being too happy with my new toy

    The enclosure specifications won't change from what we spec now.

    Any surround you like can be custom tooled at a soft parts manufacturing company (there are quite a few out there) -- it's just not cheap so it's not practical for one-off applications or for drivers that don't really need the additional throw.
