Those look nice. Curious decision to step away from the dual magnet design. Are these still the SMD style dual coil, with 2 individual winding in 2 gaps?

Nice. Reminds me of an SP4V2 with a split slug. Whats the benefit over a solid magnet?

In an electric motor the edges/ends of the magnetic core (as opposed to the center of the magnetic core) provide the centering force for the assembly. Not sure if that same phenomena applies to permanent magnets tho.

The split slug is actually cheaper to produce iirc, and its also prone to be damaged less compared to larger slugs. Which is why I was told they started doing them on the old single ufo btls like I got.

One thing that worries me is where the coil leadout wire is meet with the tinsel wires, it just appears to be dangling there. Usually they are covered in glue to prevent vibration which can lead to breaking leadout wires from the coil.

no need to be worried.  I can't remember the last time i had a problem with a tinsel on any of my subs.  The only worry i have (ain't even a worry i guess) is that it will never get released....at least not in 2018 LOL.  At least i have them i guess. :D
