Hi I am planning on upgrading my fronstage soon and would like to try a new set of midbasses/midrange and just wanted some feedback as well as some questions answered. Anyway my plan is to try and fit a set of td10’s into the kicks of my 99 eldorado. I currently have a set of 6×9’s in there and I’m pretty sure I can fit them. However, just a few questions..
1. How well would they work with the back of the kickpanel vented into a panel? Are there any modifications that could be done to the driver to make it more suitable for that application, if it doesn’t work already. That’s currently how my kicks are built as a fully sealed enclosure would be too hard to get airspace. I have an active EQ with lots of x-over options so I don’t need any help from a box of any sort for a HPF.
2. Any chance they could be built with a 2 or 4ohm coil if I went with the apollo upgrade? I have alot of clean A/B power to play with at lower impedences, at 8 ohms I’d be a bit more limited. I have about 600 watts to play with at 2ohms.
3. In your opinion, what is the best td10 model to attempt to mate to a 1inch horn driver (109db/1w/1m). I’d probably run the TD’s from 80hz (24db/octave) to about as high as they can, honestly. Beaming in a car isnt’ really a bad thing as you can use it to combat side bias. Your closer to the left speaker so having it beam, while having the further speaker in the kick more on axis leads to a good polar response from both seats. The horns would keep my upper end responsee even from both seats higher up. I’m thinking the td10m would be my best choice, but just wanted another opinion.
4. How much power compression will I get with these if I put 600 watts on them, assuming I get the upgrade? I’m really trying to match my horns as closely as possible in dynamic output capablity. My current mids are decent, but defintely give up before the horns do.
5.What’s the rumors I’ve heard about a td8? How long until those are ready or would it be possible to get some custom built? I know an 8 would fit alot easier into my kicks and as long as I can get 6mm+ of xmax and over 92db/1w/1m sensativity (more would be better…) I’m a happy man, especially if it handles as much power as the other td woofers! My current mids are that effecient with that much xmax and only handle 125 continous, that’s conservative, but I know I can easily smoke them with the 300 or so I currently have on tap…. That’s the issue, lol.
