First Looks: SoundSplinter RL-i Series 8" Driver

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone!

Finally snapped some shots of our RL-i8 prototype driver.

The finished product will carry a small centered logo.

This driver will be one of the beefiest "little" eights out there,

optimized for tiny enclosures driven with 175-500wrms.

As we get closer to the final launch date for this 8 incher,

more information will become available.. but for now, without

further ado, the new RL-i series 8" driver from SoundSplinter :ready2go:

:ph34r: :woot:

I'm just not a fan of the whole pre-order thing. Maybe some day down the line, but for now (maybe 'cause I'm new to this?), I just don't want to get people's hopes up when it may take longer than expected to get the fully finished product shipped... and then there'll be a whole bunch of people that may either be impatient or just downright pissed off at any unforeseen delays - so, I'm only gonna sell when I have something to sell wink2.gif

However, I'll certainly give you all first crack when they are available (thinkin' late March). :slayer:

> Price ? ( not shure if it was listed before )

Not going to release the price quite yet.

Still working on it, but to give you a ballpark range, it will be more than $100 but less than $200 per driver tongue2.gif

(including price breaks for 2+ drivers)

A subwoofer, eh.

Could this subwoofer be coupled well with a pair of horns for midbass/midrange duties? IE: Do the same as the Koda8.

If not, a pair would work well for me under a seat, or even HT.

Awesome.

I've been looking to replace the 6.5's and 8's up front with a single 8" on either side. Hopefully your testing goes well :)

Mike, those are beautiful!! If the performance matches the asthetics, you'll have a little beast on your hands. Man, if I had a use for 8s, I'd get some. This move is killing me. I can't stand having to SAVE money vs. spending it.

side note, I was just pimping SoundSplinter in 3 thread on OT.com

massive exposure right there, seeing that it is the 5th in traffic in the world for forums

Sweet!!!!

Steve stole my question.....I was praying these would be able to do midbass/midrange duty (up to ~800hz would be sweet). I may just have to pick up two and find out when they are released :D

I'm not sure on the exact spec's of the TC Custom 8", but by the looks of the images you linked, the motor/magnet structure will be larger on the SoundSplinters.. Performance-wise, our RL-i8 will be most similar to the Eclipse 8" drivers that are no longer commercially available.

The RL-i8 will be available in 4ohm dual voice coil only.

Alright. I didn
