  • "Happy customer." by allen banezz on 8/25/2014

    A customer brought me 4 Peavey FH-1 single 15" vintage W bins and he had 2 of these loaded in them. He told me they sounded awful. we hooked them up and yes they did. I then loaded them up in a pair of 2x2x2 ported sub boxes and WOW! these things came alive. So we scrapped the old Peavey boxes. I ended up building 4 new vented cabinets and the results are excellent. These look and act like some JBL woofers (2226) I have owned and used over the past years. These are as good as any 15" woofer 2-3 times the price. Huge bass and good mids. For the price you get a lot of speaker.

  • ""GREAT WOOFER FOR THE PRICE"" by jaycboettcher on 4/17/2014

    I purchased these to replace a pair of BW 1801's in 2 cabinets that were getting worn out, the 1801's have more mid range to them than the these MCM drivers, (but we don't buy 18" woofers to play mids do we!) & I love the build quality & sound, BASS is great, SPL is better that the BW's. I want to make sure to note however that the screw mounting holes do not match up with my BW cabinets, the MCM pre-drilled screw mounting holes are spaced at the same distance apart but further out on the edge of the woofer, so keep in mind either the cabinet or woofer will need modification to mount. I didnt want to modify so I went with the MCM Part #: 55-2964! Other than that no regrets, these woofers are great!

  • "THIS IS SOME WOOFER from MCM......I think thier best yet" by EmersiveAV on 6/6/2013

    I just received these in a few days ago. I believe I know who the OEMer is of these woofers. These woofers I think are problably the BEST woofers to ever bare the MCM name. The construction of these drivers is some of the best Ive seen in pro audio. The cone is heavy duty the basket is cast nice the magnet is HUGE and the through basket venting rivels that of that "J" company. I bought two of these for evaluation for use into my product line and right out of the box I see a winner here. I will be building some new model 18" subwoofers for these but I can already see these being the driver of choice for my PS18PRO Subwoofer. I also see these available in smaller sizes and I think Ill be buying more in the future!
