PMC TLE1

Anyone used one?

I've been offered one at a silly, silly low price for what it is. Reviews are thin on the ground apart from articles written by Bryston/PMC people so obviously I'm taking them with a pinch of salt. The only real review I can find is in Polish!

Cheers

I gather this is essentially a sub that uses smaller drivers but a transmission line to get lower frequencies?

How low is the price and why not just get a good sub like BK MOnolith or something from SVS?

I built a DIY "clone" of this sub. It works well and plays very low, but is naturally limited in output. I'd sort of reccomend it for large bedroom size rooms; in too small a room it'll be boomy as it does have an extended low end response, but in too big a room it won't have adequate output. The sound quality is quite tight and articulate, it performs well with music

I'd rather not go in to figures, but considering it's a 2000 sub the price is extremly attractive. I'm leaning towards it because in the future I'll be buying a TB2/DB1 system and this is the matching sub.

Dr Em - interesting link, sadly I can't see the photos. Any chance you could host them over here?

Don't know how useful the construction pics are, here's a few though:





I think it ended up larger than the TLE1, and not as pretty

Incidently, I am now looking to sell it (lack of space).

That's pretty cool, did you line the inside with foam?

There's some wadding in there yeah, but not much as it's very bandwidth limited being a subwoofer, it is more to "fine tune" it as it effectively changes the line length
