The sub is a 12". Due to a NDA I cant/wont name the brand or model. the 15" feel was untinded. I was experimenting with using a 6mm thick MS ring around the woofer (you can see the step if you look closely) as this was my first attempt at the FRP-Ply-FRP sandwich and I was afraid it might not be stiff enough.

My current lifestyle dictates that there be enough room in the car for my family hence I now tend towards designs and ideas that can reduce box size.

Not a custom job. A factory made twin 12" assault front firing bass reflex enclosure (I repeat) to die for.
Let's put it this way hydra. 07 will be a very interesting year for Infinity.

*cough cough*

I only said the speakers were protos na. When did I say that the woofer enclosure was a proto? I just said that it's not yet released in India. You want to see the woofer I am putting in my verna?

See. And don't ask me specs and price please. I don't know and I wont say.
And don't faint, please. lol

I thought Infinity was the premium brand? These look like they took their design cues from the Sony Xplode series.

OK RT I'll agree with you there. Even though that was a low shot. Anyways it's a matter of personal choice. I've seen it in person and it's beautiful.

Anyways, here's another view.

Yes they have white light around the rim of the subs. No the logo does not light up. In fact the light is very very subtle.

P.S. These are Reference series FYI and this one is also there

No offence meant, Sam.. it's just my personal opinion, it looks like a mini compo speaker in the picture! I think the CS series enclosed sub looks better than this, clean driver, nice classic enclosure. I'm sure, as you mention, it looks more handsome in person. Is that molded silver section plastic?

well honestly it IS a matter of personal taste. One man's meat and all that. The picture does no justice. Many LOVE the way it looks. The feedback we have recieved is very encouraging.

No - why should I take offence at your view? I didn't design it.
And I really really like it, wait till you see it in my car and when you HEAR it. Woohoo!

The silver section is reinforced ABS and metal grill.

That's one angry looking sub! It is a little over designed IMHO, but I guess it will look better in person, in the boot of a car. That's when we'll get a better reference of the actual dimensions.

The second pic looks better and does more justice, as it is not so close up to the enclosure. As they are 12"s, this must be a pretty big enclosure, something like that dual bandpass thing of JBL?

Sorry to interrupt. I am wishing to see more of Sam's Verna and the new ICE before this thread is hijacked by Infinity.
