Well, they are good for the money and certainly work. You only hear the distortion if you switch off the mid and high drivers. But maybe you know this feeling that when you didnt buy the best, you will be dissatisfied sooner or later.

All true
Maybe a 12" is under stress and a bit small fore your needs
but until now noone has yet heard the BMS 18N860
maybe some have experience with other 18N models, they have triple shortrings too?

btw, the distortion at high SPL may also come from cone flex...it may need coating

Thanks fore making me think twice...I have now returned to my first choice, the BMS 18N860, which I hope will play with an AE 10" mid or B&C 8PE21, and a 18Sound NSD1095N...looks like this will drain my pockets completely

That could sound very good. I should (finally) have my AE drivers next Friday.

BMS is a good choice.

anybody here tried simulating push-pull subs with them?

Also,

email/pm me for a name to get some nice BMS prices in the UK.

Question BMS 18N860

Hi Everyone,

First post on this forum - it's a great site.

I'm trying to find a place to purchase a BMS 18N860 but i'm not having much luck. Online would proably suit me best, but i have a friend in New York, and in London that could pick one up for me and bring it to Australia if need be.

I've tried to email 'aubergine' in this thread, but since i'm a new member i'm unable to email people yet. Any help would be much appreciated.

P.S. Great site, i've been reading for a while now and enjoy the knowledge and the debates!

Best of luck. I've bought drivers directly through BMS in Germany several years ago but it was expensive on duties and fees at this end. I've also tried to ring and email Jack at Assistance in the US only a couple of months back for some 18N850s but he didn't have any in stock and never got back to me (after more emails and phone calls) so I never went through with it.

Depending upon what you're trying to achieve there are other drivers more readily available that may do as well. I went with the AE's because they look exceptional.
