No really. Thats why I made my comment earlier. Finding a happy medium with motor strength and suspension is an art. Well I feel it is anyways. 38mm Xmax is great but if you need an 8cuft enclosure and still need 6000watts to get there on a conservative 1000rms motor its just another thing to worry about. I dont push anything this hard but when needing high power amps to power subs all the time just makes a much higher expense. There is always the clone but would be nicer to have something that maybe just needed double rms in a relatively small enclosure and utilities 75/80 of its Xmax.

Me too. @chadsmith013 People wanted more options. Fi delivered. If I didn't have 4-18" Fi drivers in my home already, I would be all over them.

I was just perusing their site, that HT-3 does look pretty sweet. Might have to do some modeling...

It is quite the performer, even in very small cabs. I like it...and it seems like a relative bargain when considering the xmax and power handling.

I'm still waiting to see the HT4. Hoping to see a BL of 25+.

A lot of people are sitting back waiting to see them tested at data-bass.

For motor strength, you should be comparing BL^2 / Re. That is the true strength and won't have any dependence on different variations of impedance

The BTL3 18 has a beast of a motor , fs is a little higher but thats not a brick wall. BL^2 / Re of 200 is considered strong, this one is almost 400

If you can't stand behind our troops stand in front of them

Yes you are correct. I was assuming a Re similar to the HT3, and hoping for a higher BL value from the HT4.

SSD (non-NEO) 197
BTL3 220
Err-meh-GUH (Omega) 398
Team 4 - 228
Team (2? 3?) - 297


They use N/A's for the NEO's and I don't know how to convert those.

I didn't want to wait so opted for the Ficar SSD neo's.

I waited months and when the release kept getting delayed, I pulled the trigger on a UM-18 when they were on sale for $250. I don't think they released them until two months after that.
