Default Ethos and trident update thread

I will update all information I receive for people waiting on their Ethos and Tridents as I receive them. If you have any questions don't hesitate to ask.


The Ethos has received a few changes. I switched to regular chrome because it's a more durable finished.

Machining on the top and bottom plate was redesigned to increase flux flow and reduce weight. It looks like it has about a 10 percent stronger B field and has lost about 10 pounds in weight. The increase in Magnetic force might show up on the meter but won't be enough to make an audible difference in sound. The new and old drivers will work fine together.

Cooling is a bit different and will help a bit for people competing, running over rated power. I believe Sencheezy is running around 4k to his and hasn't blown a coil as of yet. (knock on wood)

All Ethos will come with dual lead wires and I'm using a new 3 piece terminal. Originally on the single leads people running over 2k rms were burning them up.

EVERYONE CURRENTLY WAITING ON ETHOS ARE GETTING THE NEW MACHINED MOTORS.

As of the last update I reveived, the motors were suppose to leave CHina last week. My supplier was expecting to receive them in 20-25 days. Once he receives them he has to charge the motors them then forward to me. If they stay on schedule ( which they haven't so far) I should receive them during the last week of December. Then a few business days to assemble and then ship to customers.

I have had a few cancellations and a few upgrades to Tridents so I have around 20 or so still for sale.

I have a short run of Tridents coming along with the Ethos. Team members already have dibs on a few and I'll be running several in a Geo Metro. So I only have around 30 available.

The trident is based of the above sample. The obvious changes was to go with three top plates. This was done to increase BL, while increasing sensitivity and to reduce xmax a bit. The original sample had a xmax of 47.5mm one way, the Trident has a xmax (70% BL of 38.5 mm one way). The soft parts I use are verified by klippel to provide 40mm one way movement without mechanical issues.

Cooling added to the rear of the motor will help prevent motor noise by decreasing superposition for those who might want to invert them.

Below are estimated specs based on the original 18 sample. Once I get them in I'll send them off for Klippel testing and let Taylor beat on one to get his input.

fs 28 hz
re. 1.68 ohms
bl 20.9
qms 12.5
qes .48
qts .46
spl 92.5 db 1w/1m
vas 160 liters
estimated rms power rating 2,800 watts

PRICING (plus shipping)
12" $543.95
15" $554.95
18" $577.95

The current preorder price is roughly 20 percent off retail.

Received confirmation the motors are in transit from China and I will have them by the end of the first week of January at the latest.

10's are available however I personally wouldn't go that route if you have enough height for a 12. I haven't klippeled the 10 I built but it liked .5 sealed and 1.5 ported tuned to 32.

I'm going to send one off to be klipped with the Tridents after the first of the year.

This delay from China is killing me. This will be the last time I do a preorder.
