Just out of curiousity
 
Which driver do people think is better and your reasons why?
Lets say for example/comparison;
 
A) both to be used in a 18 standard EMINENCE scoop
 
B) sound quality
 
C) wattage
 
Why do alot of reggae sounds prefer the 1850??

Don't use eminence scoop. Dead

Apparently TBX sound warmer and more musical,and 1850 just has Brutish SPL and takes more hammering.

1850 does drop silly deep in Shortman/ASS.

Use scooper + V18-1000
ASS + 1850
Shortman + 1850 (or others Wink)

If you had read scoop forum you would have found all this and much more.

If 1850 is more louder and out does the TBX then why is the TBX more expensive? surely there must be a reason for this?

there is more to a drivers price than just its out put, [or in that fact how good it sounds] what will ultimately affect the price of a loudspeaker driver is how much it cosats to manufacture and quite often how much it costs to get it from the point of manufacture to the customer...

1850 is a horn driver, the tbx100 sounds good in reflex, never heard a good 1850 reflex box

Never used the 1850, but what is wrong with it in a BR cabinet? Has it to do with the dip around 50/60Hz due to the strong motor? Some EQ could fix that problem.

Ive no idea what stops the 1850 working in reflex boxes, but it doesn’t work well and has a decidedly wooden tone in all the cabs i have heard, one if the worst being the old CVA 1850 sub that many chain nightclubs were using in the 1990’s. Horrible things.

I did attempt good sounding 1850 reflex a few times as i had 24 of them to hand at one point, but soon gave up, sold them and purchased colossus 18XB’s which made a much nicer, warmer, tuneful sound.

For reflex buy the B&C.
