Default New AV12X, AV12H and AV15X, AV15H from Acoustic Elegance (former Stryke)

Hi guys,

Did you saw the new drivers available from Acoustic Elegance ? John had alot of problems to bring them to market, but now they are ready and he's taking pre-orders with a pre-order rebate !

199$ for the AV12H or AV12X
219$ for the AV15H or AV15X

My personnal favorite is the AV15H since it's modeling very well in a large vented box or passive radiator box. I plan to replace my old Adire Audio Shiva with it... that will be a serious upgrade !

I think the drivers have a bit high Fs IMHO but other than that, they look great with that aluminium cone. The Qts is OK and excursion is a good 23mm with 1000W power handling.

Here's some specs :

I'm glad to see these drivers made it back into production. At the preorder price, those AV12s look like a real deal. I've got an AV12 from back when TC Sounds built them for Stryke Audio, and I think I might move up to the new woofer for whatever improvement in musicality I can get, though the originals were some of the cleanest bass drivers ever, period.

Yeah, the AV12-X looks good in a ~3.3 ft^3, 20 Hz TQWT and ~11.7 ft^3, 13 Hz TH.

Should be even better with that full copper sleeve on the pole...

Sorry, no plans to build any, just thought I'd 'run the numbers' since its specs looked like they might work in a semi-reasonable size cab.

hey GM,

I have very little experience with the tapped horns at all. Any chance you could post up a simulation?

Greets!

Just did one, which includes a 0.3 ohms/4 mH inductor, though of course a different value may be required:
