Default Dan Wiggins,what is going on with Tempests ?

Hi Dan,

I mailed your sales dept, but no reply.

Are there going to be any more tempests ? Reason I ask is I bought 3 with a view to getting a fourth later. Now they are unavailable anywhere.

Cheers!

Rob

this may have something to do with it:

Here's some basic info. More will be following shortly (no, I won't specify an exact date):

Complete product lines:

Shiva. Two inch diameter voice coil, overhung design, 14.5mm one way Xmax. 10", 12", 15" sizes, dual 8s and dual 4s available. Basic entry level SQL sub, low cost, easy to use, good performer.

Tempest. 2.5 inch diameter voice coil, overhung design, 18.5mm one way Xmax. 10", 12", 15" sizes, dual 8s, dual 4s and dual 2s available. All around banger. Will play deep, good SQ, get loud, budget SQL weighted to more SPL than SQ.

Maelstrom. Three inch diameter voice coil, overhung design, 24mm one way Xmax. 12", 15", 18" sizes, dual 4s and dual 2s available. Monster big driver. Handle lots of power. Real SPL monster, high BL (29 N/A), high stroke, still retain some decent SQ.

Koda. Two inch diameter voice coil, XBL2 motor, 18.5mm one way Xmax. 10", 12", 15" sizes, dual 8s and dual 4s. Basic entry level SQL sub, low cost, easy to use, better SQ than the overhungs with output around the Tempests. Like the current Koda 10s.

Brahma. 2.5" diameter voice coil, XBL2 motor, 26mm one way Xmax. 10", 12", 15" sizes, dual 4s and dual 2s. midline SQL sub, competitive price, similar to the current Brahmas in SQ and SPL.

Tumult. Three inch diameter voice coil, XBL2 motor, 34mm one way Xmax. 12", 15", 18" sizes, dual 4s and dual 2s. Top of the line in output, great SQ. Like the current Tumults, just more options.

That's the starting lineup. And I'll post more details when it's appropriate, so no begging...

Good info, thanks spots25.

The question is do I sell my 3 tempests and replace with 4 of something available, or buy 1 second hand, knowing they're 'out of date'....

Put them in boxes and start breaking them in... start the sales process and make enuff cash to get Tumalts

How are you doing Rob... you haven't been around much lately...

Off topic alert!

Hey, Andy. If you're building a new system I might be interested in buying the HD3Ps from your KLS 3 golds.

We now return you to your normal programming...

Hi pinkmouse,
good memory Sorry. Another thread mentioned I have designed my new house to incorporate a sub-bass horn to augment the KLS3's. I can then remove the added mass to lower bass.

Hi Dave,

I'm doing ok - been playing with hi-eff stuff recently. Will post info when I'm finished and happy with them...

Your maths is a little wonky there. I don't think 3 second hand tempests would bring in enough to cover buying 1 tumult over here, let alone a pair.

Andrew T - not selling anything at the moment. Just looking at options. The best one being finding one more tempest to match my 3.

Cheers,

Rob

Rob, my memory is probably failing me, but did we ever see pics of your finished translams?
