Default Obsidian Audio 18" subwoofer information

This is the official thread about the 18" subwoofer we will be producing in the near future. All of the details about the driver will be posted up here for quick reference.

The 18" Obsidian will be part of our current "600 watt" series. It will be rated at 600 watts RMS.

It uses the same voice coil, roughly the same motor, and the same VC cooling system as our current "600 watt" series. The top plate will be different on the 18" model in order to bolt up to the 18" frame.

The 18" driver will use the 6 spoke basket finished in gloss black.

We are targeting the driver to work in 3 to 5 ft^3 sealed and 4 to 6 ft^3 ported. Exact box volumes will be listed after the first prototypes are built and measured.

We are custom tooling the cone, surround, and spacer/adapter plate for this driver.

It will use this cone,


...this surround,


...and this spacer/adapter.


There will be dual 4 Ohm and dual 2 Ohm options available.

Re-cones are going to be available for roughly $75 plus shipping.

8 layer flat aluminum SPL coils will be available when a drop-in or re-cone is ordered with an additional $40 cost.

We will not modify, or add to, the spider packs, cone, or surround.

We are hoping to keep the cost at $199 plus shipping.

Right now (July, 2011) we are starting to tool the three items pictured above. After the tooling is complete we will build prototypes to test. After the prototypes have been tested we will release a date for the start and cost of pre-ordering. There is no definite ETA as of this posting but we are hoping to have this driver come to fruition by or before the end of this year, December 2011.
