Ricci Posted January 19, 2017 Author Report Share Posted January 19, 2017 I definitely like the IPAL drivers specs better than the 18 Sound drivers. If I could buy a M drive module I would try it but I will have to stick with the lesser expensive SP plate amps. AND for my build I will make two hatch covers. One with the plate amp and one without. Most likely I would never use the hatches without the plate amp but if I feel like pushing the limits with the higher tune I can use a bigger amp with just speakons on the other hatch. If moving these cabinets around a lot does anyone use corner protectors? I know Duratex is great but was curious for those that move large cabinets around a LOT. Just want to be able to beat on the exterior for a while. My cabinet probably wont move very much if any at all but I like to plan for roadies handling or UPS handling. lol Thanks The 18 sound drivers look good but their gap geometry appears to be nearly the same as the 9600 or 9000 series. The B&C stuff has a taller top plate (18mm on the 21) and a longer coil wind from what I can tell. The result is quite a bit more xmax. The 21Ipal coil has a 15mm overhang and doesn't leave the gap completely until 33mm. The 18 sound ID drivers are likely closer to a 10mm overhang and leaving the gap at 22mm. You can install corner protectors, skid plates, wheels, pole mount, etc. Whatever you want to do. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
