Default New 3" Titanium TB drivers

They use actual titanium cones.. wonder what kinda price results from that.

They also have a peak right at about 10 or 15k to 20k


Three models:

http://www.tb-speaker.com/detail/1230_04/w3-1285sb.htm

http://www.tb-speaker.com/detail/1230_04/w3-1335s.htm

The second one appears to have the best response on their graph, but x-max on the first one is more than double that of the other two..

weird

We have to wait and see if one of the North American distributors picks up one of these. Interesting design that looks promising. Same old .5mm Xmax though.

Default titanum

These look a lott like my pioneer car speakers. The titanium cone my be good for tweaters but as a full range I think thay are a bit to stiff and klinical, the drivein period could be endless as they won´t soften upp ever! But they look very high tec and maybe thats the problem, I like the lo-tec solution paper cone.

If the published specs are to be believed, these differ from previous TB drivers in that Fs is higher and Qts is lower - it moves them closer to being midrange style drivers rather than full range. Given their 0.5mm xmax, this is a more reasonable use, although I can see how the market wouldn't be particularly big.

These guys have a mass corner that might allow decent horn/waveguide loading, particularly in a Unity style system where their small size would work well and the xmax wouldn't be quite so much of an issue.

The first one says X-max is 1.25 mm

but it could be a typo seeing as the other two are ~0.5mm...
