Interesting site, they also have measurements of RCF LF18P400 and 'G400.

I'm not sure if I'm yet ready to accept that the reincarnation of what I thought to be the greatest mid-BL 18" driver available has a Qts between 0,52 (published) and 0,67 (measured).








need to get these guys to measure old chassis pd1850 alongside new chassis Wink

Make sure they take into consideration how PD measure first though aye? Power test for two hours / measure / power test for a further two hours / measure - then take a mean value of the two sets of figures. It gives figures that reflect how the driver will perform after it's loosened up a bit.

Why not just use the last set of figures as that would be the closest one to real life?

Not sure what the deal is with PD at the moment, but what I know for sure is the new 186 is not the same as the old ones. I tested them myself and the new ones perform more like the fane sov 18 than the old 186. Whether or not the parameters where incorrect on the old ones, they certainly are different to the new ones which IMO is not good.

I was also present last week when the 1852s in question was tested in the lev scoops and the new chassis 1852 didn't sound as smooth as the proto ones used when the lev scoops where played in Golden Palace. Not only did they not sound as smooth they seemed to bottom out much ealier. And yes they did all have gaskets in place.

Well, in that case, i know who you are... finally.

And, one driver did have a gasket because I fitted it retrospectively and the other didn't so a comparison test could be done.

Didn't know my Identity was a secret

The new chassis 1852 that was tested did have gasket fitted saw that personally and the cab also had gasket fitted around the cutout.

I am not sure the lack of gasket can make any significant difference. If the paint is thick enough and drivers are tightened properly you do not need a gasket.

There you go, PD1850, PD1851 and PD1851.2.
These guys at prodance do quite a lot of measurements.

Some real ropey figures there.

Think he may have measurements for '50 & '50/2 reversed.
