The CSD is a "stereophile like" style, use the blackman-harris window and 0.15ms risetime.

Default Low sound output level

Is the decibel/watt figure a typo? Only 84.4 db/watt @ 1 M!

With a power handling of 15 watts the output level will be very low.

At about 35 bucks (according to a russian Fountek site)...this seems like a good deal. The drop in the 7K region should make it nice and relaxed.

The inefficiency could be seen as a benefit in use on an OB. I think this plus an augie (3db more efficient) on OB would make a nice speaker ala martins OB.

I'm having a hard time finding a supplier for this driver.  Everybody carries the ribbon tweets, but nobody has the little fullranges (ex-ranges, actually; 110Hz up is not fullrange).  Yes, it's cold, but a 4-array would do okay, about 91dB; so it's down to cost per, which I have not been able to find.

The only shop I can find is bmm electronics. But that's a shop from the Netherlands.
I think the shipping costs will be very high to the US.

I wonder if the tolerance of the parameters would be better than Tangband.

(I measured some W3-871s, and the VAS, for example, is 0,88. The VAS from the datasheet is 1,66)

How many W3-871s did you measure?  And, were they pretty tight to each other, or all over the place?

Thanks,

Poinz

I measured two of them and a friend 4 tangbands.

We lost the exact paramters of the last 4, but we have the standard parameters (Fs, Re, and Qts)

See the tekst file.

Soon we'll measure the T/S again for better results.
