Default AE TD6M - Experiences?

I am planning a three way speaker with RAAL dipole 140-15D above +-2k5 and AE TD15 below +-300hz. I think the TD6M looks like a interesting mid range driver for this speaker, but I am not sure since I cannot find any recommendations/experiences on the web for this driver.

Does anyone here have experience with the TD6M driver?

One other possibility is to use one or two acoustic elegance Dipole6 as midrange.

I can't say anything about this speaker, but i can say that Nick & John know what they are doing when it comes to designing & making drivers.

Yest, that is my experience also. I think John does a fantastic job! I already have the TD12X in a two way, but are going to build a even bigger and (hopefully) better speaker. But I think I have not found anyone yet that have actually used this drivers by them self.

I'm hoping someone uses them before new NY as I have another design I'd like to try them. I'll buy them on faith though as I like the 15X and 10M I already have.

See my info here:

HTGuide Forum - Lambda TD6 tests on the way

and here:

Acoustic Elegance • View topic - TD6 measurements

They sound pretty good...well better than good, but I only kept them long enough to test, get an idea and then send back to the owner. I also like the 18 Sound 6ND430 for that style midwoofer. Doesn't have the dip in response. Not quite a clean sounding, but close.

Thanks for the links.

Did you ever find out what was causing the dip in your measurements ?

Nope. No one at AE ever followed up on the thread over there.

Sveinung, I saw your post on the AE forum as well. I would not personally use the TD for a dipole design. Look at my picts...the magnet obscures the majority of the read of the driver. I ended up with the BG Neo10 and am beyond happy with their performance. See info here:

Raal 140, Neo10, AE Dipole 15 in the works
