    It's a fun little thing...[​IMG] And yes, it does move 4" peak to peak, linearly. Sweeps a heck of a lot of air!

    Oh, it has both a spider and a basket! In fact, the spider (a variant of the same approach as used on our Parthenon driver) is what allows it to really work properly. The basket is the tube; a mounting flange is on the top of the tube for mounting into a cabinet.

    I think the word you're looking for is "new." [​IMG]

    Where is the Adire Extremis? I have heard much hype about it but I have not yet seen it, and I thought we were supposed to see pics from CES.

    Hi all,

    The Extremis 6 does exist, and was playing at CES. First implementations are custom models for Exodus Audio. There will be some DIY units rolling out this Spring.

    And yes, per Dr. Klippel's own measurements made at CES (he was measuring drivers in the Seas room) it does have 11.5mm one way excursion, T/S parameters identical to the Scan Speak 8545, and frequency response flat to 5 kHz...[​IMG]

    Other XBL^2 enabled drivers will be rolling out throughout the year.

    Do I see a pre order coming on these 6" drivers?

    Really, these would be perfect in an ML TQWT since the driver Sd determines the overall crossectional area. This would allow a small footprint 2 or even 3 way to have extraordinary bass. All the advantages of a TL in a small package.


    I want one.[​IMG]

    I'm waiting for one. I want several. I want customers for speakers made with them. I want a blonde. I want the winning lottery numbers for tonight. I want...
    Oops! Got carried away.
    As I told Dan regarding the Parthenon, I'm impressed![​IMG] [​IMG]
