Developing a 600-watt RMS 8" woofer with fully custom frame, cone, surround, spider, etc...

Frame supports ~35mm one-way linear travel and the soft parts support that as well. Design is motor limited to 19mm linear one-way and 30mm before leaving the gap -- so it will be VERY difficult to reach mechanical limitations even by accident on SPL burps.

The soft parts, frame, and so forth are VERY over-engineered to support any future motor designs I may desire to produce... meaning you may see a true high linear stroke "SQ" style design with these parts later on -- but first we are staying true to Sundown heritage and designing a super rugged "daily" woofer that will produce excellent SPL numbers as well.

The frame by itself :

The frame with cone, dust cap, and surround :

The frame with cone, dust cap, surround, AND spider :

Surround will be stitched to cone for further resistance to damage in extreme applications.

Yes -- we will be eventually making this style driver in bigger sizes... the 8" is coming first as I really felt the NEED for better platforms as I've been severely limited with existing frames in this size.

I made a new thread specifically for the X-8 platform as the other thread was mainly for the frame and also discussed the NEO-8 (the NEO-8 platform will be worked on further once the X-8 is done and in production).

i may have to grab a couple of these to test out once you get some in. Im loving the deep cone and stitched surround. Should be a beast once its finalized and in production

I do not yet have any pricing or ETA estimates yet -- it is still just renderings and drawings.

Once I get an idea of pricing I will let you guys know.

good lookin stuff so far jacob. if you ever need any assistance with modeling, cnc programming, whatnot, let us know. be glad to help. microsystemsgeorgia.com
