Default What's the Difference?

What is the big difference between standard "House" drivers and car audio drivers? Is it that most car drivers don't have T/S Specs or are they built different?

If it's mentioned that someone wants to build a set of house speakers with car drivers, it doesn't seem to go over well. What's the deal?

I would also like to know because I have a pair of french Focal car drivers/tweeters that cost me a pretty penny that I would like to re-purpose for rackmount uses.

btw I see that you are an offgrid guy, So am I.

Bunny Poo is AWESOME!
diyaudio is against your rights. I do not have the right to be forgotten and after asking the issue has been ignored, therefore I'm leaving (peacefully) for this reason. I stand up for my rights. So long and thanks for all the Fish

Wild guess: car drivers are designed to produce some sort of loud sound while coping with high levels of vibration and a wide range of temperature and humidity; home drivers are designed for good sound reproduction? All engineering involves compromise; different situations require different compromises. Modern construction techniques, such as adhesives, probably means that the difference between these two ranges is less than it was a few decades ago.

A frugal lifestyle leads to being frugal with everything it seems. Car drivers are less expensive than a lot of home type units. That's the intrigue..

Humanure works well also..
