Below are some pictures of Andrew’s latest creation. This new 6.5” driver incorporates a much larger motor, larger diameter voice coil, and much longer excursion compared to the current LFR1100 woofer. After a lot of modelling on the FEA (Finite Element Analyses) software and a lot of physical samples built by Mike this new driver is complete. This new 6.5” woofer has much more power handling and stronger bass; which will complement the sheer output capabilities of the LFR1100 perfectly. Existing LFR1100s can be upgraded to these woofers. In addition there will be a new model that incorporates this driver called the M100, but more on that soon.

Looks great!

M100 you say? Sounds like it'll be a m80 with an extra woofer(and of course as you say, these new woofers).

If it's something along those lines I would have definitely held out for it instead of purchasing the m80 (just received them a week ago and I love them btw).

I understand upgrading and new lines are inevitable and part of the business, but I can't help but feel I missed out.

Oh well, I'm still really enjoying these m80's

lol damn, it's never going to stop(upgradetis syndrome) lol. I'm already saving

We are going to work out all the pricing tomorrow including the upgrade for existing LFR1100s. I will keep you posted.

Ok, i have a follow up question.


With the new drivers, will there be a corresponding DSP software "upgrade"? I would guess that with the new drivers, the system will be able to reach lower frequencies than before? Thus, possibly new software to take that into account?

Thanks Ian.

Yes, there will be a software “upgrade” required with the new woofers.

Yes, Brent and I were discussing what can be done for existing M80 owners to take advantage of this upgrade and we will be finalizing that in the next few days.

Ah, so the "M100", which I've made facetious reference to in the past, is about to become reality.

Ian, the Thiele-Small parameters on the new woofers would be of interest, especially the max excursion and Fs.

Alex, a high quality 6 1/2" aluminum cone woofer might run about $60 as a guesstimate(we don't know the parameters), although some are over $100. Then of course there would also be software modifications needed.

Enjoy the music, not the equipment.
