    Beat's me, someone's idea of a bad joke.

    If someone wants to spend that kind of money they should get something of quality like a one of the 18"s from Resonant Engineering.

    What if you could get it for $199.00?

    Unless you are interested in PA, I would not buy one.

    I'd say you would have probably thrown away $199.00! [​IMG] It's obviously a car audio driver (look at that Qts!) and without more in depth specs you'd be taking some pretty extreme risks.

    Hell, put another $91.00 with that $199.00 and get yourself an BP 1804. You'd definitely know what you were getting there.[​IMG]

    I have a friend with an resonant engineering hc 15 in his car. Very beefy sub. Doesn't the XXX line use xbl^2 for their motors?

    Dont get me wrong, I was not planning on buying it.

    It is on EBAY (new) but the guy claims there were
    only 30 made!!!

    I emailed him for specs 5 hours ago & then also did a
    fairly extensive search on the net...couldnt find squat!

    That's not surprising ..... :wink:

    Unfortunately the Japanese are infamous for their poor loudspeakers. Now there certainly are some exceptions to that statement, but this isn't one of them ..... [​IMG]

    Maybe it's for flash... That's a big 18" cone and would look pretty intimidating in the trunk of a civic. It probably wouldn't sound too bad as a car audio driver.. The sensitivity is relatively high.

    hehe

    I think the Xmax is around 25-26mm.

    I believe that all the 03 series have a one-way excursion of 25.95mm to be exact.

    ???

    Are you talking about the 18" Panasonic that I was trying to find the Xmax for?

    The BP1503 has an Xmax of 25.85 .

    Cam,

    No. He was referring to the Blueprint drivers.
