I happen to be in the market for some new speakers for my cabinets, and I decided to use some RCF 18,s in some of my folded horns, and I came across another Italian manufacturer that everyone seems to like nowadays too! I am very happy with the sound of the RCF 18,s in the cabinets I put them into. Nice, clean, good definition, and solid thump, without excessive boom.
Anyway, theres this company called Eighteensound, and they have a 15in driver for basshorn use! 103db1w@1m sensitivity with a frequency graph that looks to be about right. So Im gonna get two and try em out!
But what really caught my attention was the amount of different 8,s, 10,s, 12s, 15,s and 18,s both ferrite and neodymium magnets, for just about any application, that they offer! All the Italian pro speaker manufacturers seem to have many types of drivers, like our American companies used to. B&C, RCF, and Eighteensound have nice product lines, and seem to be of high quality manufacture. I did say Im happy with my new RCF 18,s and they are well made.
Another thing to point out is that the prices are also somewhat reasonable, its not cheap, but not overpriced either.
Check em out on their website www.eighteensound.com and just browse!
