Default New 8'' wide range speaker

Hi,
recently I've finished the development of new 8'' speaker and want to introduce it to you. The speaker was developing in Russia, in St.-Peterburg. http://xsloudspeakers.narod.ru/fullrange8.htm

Nice looking driver. Is it your design?
And are they for sale?

BTW, did you ever work at the Jubilee (Yubileinyi) Sports Palace? When I was there one of the in house technicians built his own coax drivers. I don't remember his name, but he did great work.

Thanks for letting us see them, it's always nice to see new drivers.

sorry for my English , practice was so long ago...

yeah, I think I can say that it's my design, because it was developed like I saw it in my mind, also we listened opinions and advises of few users from Russian diy forums, some technical decisions for achievement our purpose ware made by my partner. And finally, we did it on my money for my loudspeakers :-)http://xsloudspeakers.narod.ru/clarity.htm

Now we prepare to make first 10 drivers for sale...

that guy from Yubileinyi , it wasn't me , because I live in Kazan , but my partner live in St. Petersburg

Igor,

Nice looking driver. Resembles a Visaton B200 after i install phase plugs.

In the drawing/cutaway it looks like there is an open channel behind the phase plug?

If yes, would it be possible to use that to lag bolt the driver to the enclosure?

Also reminds me of a prototype Hemp 8" with phase plug, no whizzer. FR plot looks similar, too.
I would be great fun to listen to the 3 different drivers and compare.

Igor, I'll add a question to Dave's.

In the photo of the back of the driver there seem to be long, triangular "fingers" coming down the cone. Are these the connection to the voice coil former?

Lets hope this driver makes it to the West so some of us can hear it. But maybe your Russian DIY buddies will buy them all before we can!
