    i bought on 2 15" diamond audio d3's on eBay and recieved two different year models. an old model and a newer one.
    here are some photos i took to show what im talking about:
    1) http://i2.tinypic.com/23w1jyt.jpg
    2) http://i4.tinypic.com/23w1k5z.jpg
    3) http://i2.tinypic.com/23w1m50.jpg
    4) http://i6.tinypic.com/23w1nc8.jpg



    the ridged one (newer model i believe?) has a stiffer surround and more fancy print on the magnet & outer plastic surround. and i it also has a higher rating SPL (dB) and other t/s parameter specs (Qms/Qes/Qts/Fs/etc). but rms watts rating is same. if theirs anything different on the t/s parameter specs, its about .01, .1, .25, or lesser (very small amount) says the owners manual.


    i talked with one of diamond audios dealers (the ebay seller), and he said i will be fine and no sound cancellation will occur. im not too sure to believe him or not so ill be calling DA tomorrow morning. these 2 subs will be going into a dual sealed enclosure and im just worried if i will be fine or will i have to go thru the hassle of returning one and pay even more shipping costs.


    thanks:sadwavey:

    umm, you sure you don't have a d1 and a d3? i don't recall them using foam surrounds on anything other than the d1 subs

    im positive their both d3's. it says on the sub/box/manual.
    i called diamond audio and they said i will get very little sound cancellation. he said i might be able to notice it but it wont be as much.

    what you guys think?

    if they are indeed both D3's, you won't have any problems. Diamond changed dustcaps all of the sudden one year, and threw us for a minute, but they were the same sub. Just different dustcaps.
