Have been testing new 5"VC UK driver on the block, and to me, sounds like it drops drop deeper/warmer than PD1850/V18-1000/PD 1851, and also stronger than all 3x.

Let's say it's a British Driver (of course LOL), 5 "VC, rated approx 1600W.

Heard loads of them in Golden Palace on Monday night, and if they were PDs, there would have been plenty of speaker smoke filling the air. They are not as sensitive as PDs, but will take enough power to outplay them, and still survive. Heard this for myself.

If I recall correctly, One of the guy's who used to work for PD, designed this monster.

My guess would be Celestion CF18VJD
Not too updates with the UK market though, is this a new driver?

Came out late last year.
People will ask, "what's the point of another 1000W+ driver"?

All I can say is, this driver sounds much better than PD1850, and with enough power outplays it, and throws nicely, as opposed to Turbomax.

Hello,sorry i'm late busy busy an all.

I have tried most of the drivers mentioned and ended up here...
my experience with 18 sound has been very dissapointing,sound cold and hard, don't take the rated power without cooking too easy, cost a small fortune until you come to sell them second-hand then no-one wants them unless very cheap....my advice...don't go there.

If your on a budget you want V18 or the Celestion offering,for the money you get a suprising amount of really good sound,from a driver which handles most you can throw at them.

1850 sounds a little hard also, but more spl than the previous two without a doubt.

If you wanna be in the bigboys league then no exceptions 1851s.
Sheer SPL with depth and ridiclus power handling.
Truly insane amounts of sub,will rinse everything out there....
Until i build the super hog of course.

pot stirred,job done.

Byee!

EDIT have not tried the new Celestion.Sounds like a goer though.Lev knows his stuff,I suggest you give it a try.

Clap

At recent closed doors test, we compared new Celestion &  PD1851 in my prototype scoops.
Both played warm and very deep, easily better sounding than PD1850 in my books, but obviously not as sensitive.

Consensus at this test was the Celestion "seemed" to be the stronger driver, as it "seemed"  happier playing every note at power.  Obviously not conclusive, as was 1-1 comparison, really needs 2x vs 2x cab scenario.

Are there many peoplke out there using the Celestions? From my perspective they dont seem to have aroused the level of interest we expected, certainly would be useful to have some more feedback about it...

PD.1852's faired very well in the hog too. Two on two with a pair of PD.1850's...
 
PD.1850's had more SPL at lower levels, but were quite harsh in comparison to the PD.1852's, also the PD.1852's played lots of notes that were not apparent when the PD.1850's were playing. More depth, more power, more notes... and throw too - things were moving and shaking 20+ metres away from the cabs.
