How state of the art drivers get better…

Quality and precision assembly on all woofer models is better than ever — more and more will be done here in USA too. Plus, in coming model updates you’ll see us trickle down some of our most costly features and materials.

To complement our aerospace grade aluminum (Al) cones we’ll be adding more incredibly light and stiff Rohacell(R) cones, soon laminated with basalt fabric, and FEA 3D modeling of our high-tech surrounds. This sort of “over the top” product choice is pretty common around here. It takes a lot of dedication and technology to span the range of products we do in the end.

Look over TC Sounds driver offerings and you’ll quickly conclude we have a stunning woofer for any small enclosure, large enclosure, vented, sealed — pretty much anything you might dream up as a designer. Square wound wire, stainless steel formers, there’s not much we won’t do to make your next driver your last.

All woofers are now getting extensive design guidance tables too. Let us know if you have questions about a project to show off your Sounds.


RipCurl Amps™ – a new era of sub power.

Working hand-in-glove with audio’s best technology partners, TCSounds will launch a new family of digital amplifiers with unprecedented power and control which will turn the industry on its head. Currently in development, our RipCurl Amps™ will roll out 1250 watt plate and chassis “form-factors” incorporating iPhone WiFi remote control, large LCD matrix feature displays and full pro-grade input and outputs.

Of course there’s a plethora of new features coming, as easy to use as they are digitally precise. The newest Analog Devices DSP chipsets allow our engineers to design sound tools never before possible too. So at TCSounds this means we’re serving up unprecedented power, and artful application of that power. Easy to set up, smart and gutsy to the core, our RipCurl amp will deliver just what hard core music and movie fans have always wanted, and more.

For legions of do-it-yourself audio designers out there we have something really special. Finally you’ll dive into the deep setup and customization of sound systems with only your USB equipped laptop. In moments you are linked to your subwoofer in a whole new way. A slick PC-based GUI (graphical user interface, see above) invites you to fine tune your amp’s DSP with no more engineering acumen than moving a few sliders on screen. Amazing stuff for power users.

What’s more, TCSounds Pro amp platforms will stretch to a jaw-dropping 2.4kW torrent of bass. For something truly unprecedented imagine lashing one those amps to our renown 18″ pro or consumer drivers. And development is well underway for enhanced Neptune™ room-correction for our upgradeable amps.

Last but not least will be the latest generation modular Texas Instruments® wireless signal transmission. All amp models are being designed to be forward compatible. Look for pre-orders to start later this year. Special prices and free feature upgrades will go to those buying early.
