Hi,

Does anybody know what drivers these speakers are using and where I could find a frequency response?

Click the image to open in full size.

They are the 'Allegro' from HornManufacktur.

Thanks if you can help.

They look like Lowther's of some variety.

Appear to be 'C' or 'A' series Lowthers.

If its lowther, whizzer seems to have been cut down...could also be AER

FR response will probably be the worst you have ever seen...but you dont listen to measurements

Hi,

I am pretty sure it's a Sonido fullrange speaker from Hungary:

Cone and whizzer could look a bit curved, not conical, if so you may be right about Sonido

Where is Zen Mod?

Yeah, with that ring around the driver, it'll probably resemble a comb filter more than anything else.

The ring certainly won't help matters. Forgot about the Sonido units -looks favourite to me. Shape of the phase plug is about right too.

The SFR144 would be perfect for a reasonably sized BIB.
