The original Wavecor 10” subwoofers SW263WA01 and SW263WA03 have been discontinued. The reason is that the die casting tool for the old alu frame is no longer being maintained by our supplier. The tool has worn out and no exact replacement tool will be provided.
As a consequence Wavecor are no longer able to deliver any of the 10” woofers built in this old frame.
Two new units have been launched as replacements for SW263WA01/03: SW259WA01 (4 ohm) and SW259WA02 (8 ohm).
The new models are as replacements 99% identical to the old models in terms of Thiele/Small parameters. However, there are dimensional differences as shown below.
Additionally, the new models have been further optimized for handling large signals by being fitted with new and more narrow rubber surround. The new surround offers progressive end stop limiting to prevent very large input signal peaks causing high distortion or even damages to the voice coil or other parts.
