ordered some wire -

got my RTA gear now, gonna be learning and researching more on how to use this gear efficiantly.



and the new L8's for the doors, true 8" woofers, theese are L8V1's (verstion 1) so one of the drivers that put hybrid on the market as the best of the best.





got the new alarm to get put in, and a bypass kit.



got the new mids (temp mids) i had a buyer on my 10f's but than he fell through i ordered these because well i always wanted to hear them and found them BNIB for pretty much at cost price. they are amazing, very clean. a little off, but their lower end mid's but their still top end stuff.

L3 next to L8 :P


heres another driver ive always been interested in, i might be giving these a run and givinga reveiw because im VERY interested in what they'll do.

Tang Band W4-1879 4" Full Range Driver 264-903


this is the 4" verstion, its a swap out for my current driver size. but their a bit price, gonna run me 300$ for a set of em :\

here are a few different verstions. they have a 5" verstion i think might give the 5" version of the scans 12m a run for their money. ima see what i can stir up, but gonna be a bit before i can get a chance to try those out.

Tang Band W5-1880 5" Full Range Driver 264-904


and the 3" versions. -

Tang Band W3-1878 3" Full Range Driver 264-902


just dropped the L3's in, their a bit smaller than i thought XD i thought they were a closer match...damn metric system -_- 25.4 MM \1 inch

anyways, heres the install. just a little teast of an install to hold ya off till i really start digging into things.







comparing and contrasting, perspective is always key when deminstrating a build.











the old layout sheet.





over all, a nice plessent change. upgrade? I woudln't say so much of an upgrade as it is a sidegrade, it all depends what your top end is already doing and how you play things, but the emidiate difference was the top end plays quite a bit duller than the 10F's did, the 10F's were very sharp and prnouncing the L3's are very clean and pure, very tonaly acurate, where the 10f's had character the L3's had a nice silky smooth top end. the mid range had little difference i've heard, I was able to cross the L3's a little lower.

i crossed everything this time around like this just to play around -

SSF - 20 (MS-8 default won't go lower? )

LPF - 110 24db\
HPF - 275 24 db\
HPF - 3850 24 db\

I than calibrated it all with the head phones and all the fun stuff.

over all, very nice change. the tune made a bigger difference than the drive switch. I crossed the tweeters a little lower just because i already have seen the graph and the top end can be a little sloppy. i havnt tried any other tunes yet. this tune gave a very car jammy feel, bass wasn't really on lol but it was a nice jam.

over all, L3's are far less efficiant with their different engine style the 10F's were extremley efficiant, i put maybe 20% more power to the L3's and they were just matching what the 10F's were already doing. i tuned them with flat frequency sweeps. i pushed 500hz, 1khz, 2khz, 3khz, so on and tweaked everything, than let the ms-8 do the rest.

looks good so far!

I'm assuming you're going to be selling a lot? I'm interested in a lot of it if you do decide to sell!

yeah I'll be swaping out and trying different stuff. the PDX 4.150's might sell, but i was thinking about holding onto them though, because their replacments i got at a total cost of maybe what one of the PDX's would sell for :P the 10F's are for sale now.
