SLS Platform
A new class of midbass and subbass drivers from Peerless.
SLS platform: Only available for OEM-customers.

Direct from peerless site.

This doesnt mean its gonna be impossible to find them if a supplier buys a set as OEM customer and sells them like you get retail and OEM computer parts. But I think your chances are slim.

Whats your plan for these? If its just a cheaper alternative to the XLS, then Id just save up and get the XLS rather then spend lots of time and energy trying to find a supplier. I do know that one thing to do would be to ask a supplier what it would cost to supply them. I once did this at wilmslow audio here in the UK, they didnt have a driver I was interested in so I emailed them asking for a quote. It was inline with what you would expect, no price hike because they didnt stock it either. This was a peerless driver also, a HDS one, but the HDS series are available anyway unlike the SLS series.

Good luck Matt

Here in Sweden there is no problem to get hold of theese drivers. I cannot se why this would be a problem in the states. Where in www.d-s-t.com does it say it's strictly OEM? I can't find it.

Mats:

They seem to be similar to the CSX series only with higher Qts. Were you planning these for open baffle use? Otherwise, the CSX or HDS would seem to be a better choice.

Yeah, the idea was for an inexpensive 10" OB. Oh well, the search goes...

In Norway, at least, both the SLS and SDS drivers are available from www.dynabel.no at reasonable prices.

And they do have rather high Qts values. How about putting them on a U shaped dipole baffle?

* SLS315 woofer (12") to 315Hz. USD 100ea.
* SDS134 mid (5") to 4kHz. USD 37ea.
* CT62H tweeter (1.5" cone) to 20kHz. USD 21ea.

Should be reasonably priced, with a pleasant performance, even using simple crossovers. In fact, with a notch filter on the mid, it wouldn't need a lowpass, and for the rest, except the tweeter, you could go for first order filters with zobels. Put a second order and zobel on the tweeter.
