TDS SuperSonic Speakers & Enclosures

With the SuperSonic series you are getting Tony’s newest state of the art Dream Speakers & Enclosures. These super compact rectangular speakers have incredibly big sound when paired with our matching TDS SuperSonic Enclosures. You will find that you can use these speakers and enclosures in the tight confines of locomotives where other speakers just will not fit!

Almost 15 years have passed and we’re replacing the venerable Micro and Mini oval speakers. After many months of extensive testing, our new SuperSonic Mini [15*11mm] and Small [18*13mm] speakers are ready for release. We also have matching, precision machine engineered enclosures. These speakers are a significant improvement in sound quality over their predecessors, 35% smaller and best of all, will come at a lower price point. The Supersonic Micro [16*9mm] will hopefully be ready for release this 1st half of 2015.

The SuperSonics compare MUCH better than the original mini & micro ovals. It is important to note, however, that this is ONLY true if you mount the SuperSonic  face DOWN in the enclosure (i.e. with the electrical connections exposed on top). If you mount it with the electrical connections INSIDE the enclosure, the performance of the SuperSonic degrades significantly. For example, the distortion decreases from over 16 % to 4.8% with the connections exposed on top. The speakers also gain an octave of frequency response! Since most people will tend to place the wires inside, we will would include a drawing/picture that shows the speaker mounted with the wires on top.
