Too bad. Another legend goes to the history.

I'm finding RCF have plenty of drivers, that could quite possibly be used, where old PD186 might have been spec'd. LOL

Testing commences next week.

I got a PD186/2. It's indeed very similar to the old one, except it looks better. I would not be surprised if it performs just as good.

The only thing is - right at the moment I wanted to put it into a box, I discovered with great surprise that it doesn't have the proper hole pattern. I can't use it.

I did design my bins for PD186 but because I wanted to have the option to test other drivers, I used the normal hole pattern. Which worked out because the 18sound driver does a very similar job in that box. (thanks for the reactions on here - 'hitting sound' problem turned out to be lack of gasket).

You know PD186 used to have both the PD proprietary hole pattern and the normal one, that every other manufacture uses? That last one is not there anymore.

Maybe PD are awaiting new stock of M6 holes for interior bolt pattern, and currently just sending drivers out, without them.

Which is is fantastic again, if you have 186 Horn, or other folded horn, tnutted for interior PD holes, and cab is almost impossible to re-tnut.

So I guess old version PD186 will also be going up in price, as well as old version PD1850.

Does anyone know if there is a definitive way to tell between the original 186 and the 186/2 just by looking ?

PD.186/2's have a rounded chassis flange and smoother lines, also the bottom plate on the motor has a chamfered edge. The badge will on the back will still say PD.186, but the sticker on the motor under the terminals will say PD.186/2. Also, any driver with a production date after say May 2013 will be a /2 model.

And finally, the PD.186/2 are 6mm deeper than the PD.186.
