Well that was a bit of anticlimax...

Better midrange but worse mid bass than the paper versions for both the MW16 and MW19.

Looks like the trade offs make it a side grade, not upgrade.

At the current prices I wouldn’t upgrade my MW13P to MW13TX...

What matters is how it compares to the competition.

Scanspeak Illuminator 18WU/4741T paper cone ~ $330

ScanSpeak Revelator 18W/4531-G00 paper cone ~ $210

SEAS Excel W16NX-003 (E0073-08) 6" Graphene Cone ~ $460

SEAS Excel W16NX-001 (E0049-04) 6" Magnesium ~ $280

Purifi Audio PTT6.5W04-01B 6.5" Woofer ~$370

The value of the MW16TX will be determined by how it compares to these other drivers, some of which cost more, some cost less...

70 vs 260$ - 5dB drop in breakup and a bit more even FR.
But is it worth it when you aim to cross around 1800hz to a waveguide?
SB Acoustics SB17NBAC35-4 Aluminum Cone Woofer - 4 ohm


SATORI 6" MW16TX-8 TeXtreme Cone Woofer - 8 ohm


I've seen the Textreme up close around 7 month ago, cause Ulrik brought it along to one of our countless hifi-gatherings.


I really dig the idea to have some mix between paper and metal, that can bring something new. Cause I always found softer cones to be a little boring - like they hide some details in the softer cone - damping. Harder cones on the other hand, needs a bit more care, but can really shine in their way of delivering an open performance - very clear and detailed.

I keep going back and forth on my decision to try the MW13TX. I know for sure I will get them if the politicians give us a bigger stimulus check. Again, I would prefer a true mid or wide band "full-range" such as MR13TX over a MW version in the same size. I love my Satori MR16 mid (Papyrus cone); plenty of resolution and micro-detail and a very wide and usable band width. I read something else that because SB thinks the TexTreme mid woofers are better than the Papyrus; they may decide they won't even bother with MR versions and so we would only have MW versions to choose from. The MR16 is so much better than the MW16 at the higher (frequency) end as one would expect. The MW16P and MR16P though have to be some of the best sounding drivers in that size regardless of cost or any brand out there. They will probably always remain a great bargain when you factor in the high performance to cost ratio. I still hope SB will eventually drop the TexTreme prices after the initial models have all been released and available for all (maybe after 1 year???)

Solen now says the MW13TX will be in stock mid April. I just did a pre-order for one pair in 4 Ohm; here we go!

Full price of course!

Yes, me too! Like I said many times; I would really rather have a TRUE midrange (or better yet, very wide band full range) version but that may not even happen. Some have said that SB may not do any TexTreme mids as they think the mid range performance of the MW is a good enough as is unlike with the original Papyrus cone that has separate MW and MR versions!??
