Hi peeps,

Here's some pics of the our new system. Enjoy!






Sitting on the dock of the bay.....


Close up on the Tractrix Mids. 

New curvy bracing.


More details of the new bracing.


Hatches on the Terrhorns.


The new PD.185N01 (labelled 1850X above) sitting next to an early 1850, when we were about to test the drivers for the first time. Forgot to get pics of the tops of the cones, but they use triple roll suspensions. Cones are stronger/stiffer, the Neo magnets have been designed to give a completely linear magnetic field through the voicecoils travel in the gap, and Xlim is up by 12mm over the 1850, Xmax by a smaller margin. 


New driver in the cab. Check out the massive flared vent in the pole piece, and eight others around it on the magnet cover. The basket also has 6 large vents. Should stay reasonably cool as it is, but we're having thoughts about making CNC'd alloy hatches and some sort of cooling system... 


Six of the new Terra's nearing completion in Al's workshop.

Cheers,

Gramps.

Thanks for the compliments guys Smile

All of the rigs were on strict limits that day, with the fun police set on maximum alert because of nearby residential areas, so we still had quite a bit of headroom to play with, and had to use some pretty judicious eqing on the bass to keep them happy - I'm surprised it still sounded so good TBH! 

We had wanted to set up as a mono-stack, as we were doing the Reggae stage, and experience just what 8 Terra's are capable of doing together as a ground stack for the first time, but the on-site sound crew wouldn't let us, for some strange reason.... 

Cheers,

Gramps.

Had a photo shoot with the system a few days ago, to get something decent to put on our company website/promo material. Apart from a few issues getting the boxes lined up because the floor was so uneven, it came out looking pretty sweet Smile
