Rcf 8006 and 9006
« on: May 11, 2018, 09:16:13 am »

Anyone hear these and can offer opinions? 

From what I have found the 9006 is a cleaner sounding sub with the 8006 having more punch in certain frequencies.

Looking for opinions between the two.

Figured I follow up for anyone seeking the same questions.

I went to RCF and had a demo of the subs and the hdl20 and hdl30. 

First off, both subs sound amazing.  One will easily put out what two of my srx828 will.

The 9006 was my favorite.  It had incredible punch and the clarity was some of the best I've heard in a sub.  I was very impressed.

Do you know what drivers are in the 9006? 
Everyone seems impressed by it..

thx,  mark

Get the 9006 if you buy new and can afford them.

Get the 8006 if you can't, or if you get a great deal on demo/second hand.

IIRC, in an earlier thread an RCF rep pointed out that they don't use off the shelf units from their standard product line for their own boxes.
So although it'd be nice to model what might be used, it won't be as simple as finding the highest powered, longest excursion example from that range and assuming it'll be a match.

That's what i suspected, thx.
Plus, RCF doesn't list an 18" that matches the power specs in the 9006.

Power spec is for the amplifier section, not the drivers.
Look for the biggest 4 inch voice coil 18 they do, should be that one, or a very close derivative.

Close, but no sigar.

8006 should be a 401 derivatve, 9006 a 405 or something, but with a different coil to bring the impedance down, so the amp has to work harder.

Eddie Limon at Above the Crowd is currently selling off a dozen lightly used 8006's

When I was down at RCF this summer and asked about the 9006 the guy told me that the drivers had double "something". I didn't understand what he said. Double windings, coils, double what.. That sub sounds amazing at least.
