Maybe Dan or Moose can help out here.
I have plenty of good to great 6, 10, 12, and 15 inch coaxials

What if I compromised 3db?

How big of a baffle do you use? How long have you had them? Is there a website?

i used them on a relatively small baffle, about 18" tapered to 14" at the top, around 32" tall, i actually had the 'Spec' version that i found had a little too much treble, and i have been meaning to try the normal version that i suspect will be just right.
it had brilliant mid-range imo, voices were very 3d, obviously needed some bass support, but i miss them now, and the normal versions are on my 'wish list'

Thanks!

Looks like they are made in Canada! Can I buy them in the USA?

Supervox states that the freq response is up to 10K, but it really should be crossed over at about 6500, which means more than a full range setup. You will still need a tweet that can get down there.

The Omnes sensitivity is probably optimistic... to get that high efficiency one would likely need an 8" or larger, which probably limits you to Fertin or Supravox. A new contender would probably be the 9" Feastrex, but it may not like an OB, you need seriously deep pockets, and it would probably be a waste restricting it to such a narrow band. As well it would be very challenging to find woofer & tweeter that would mate with it.

Relaxing things a bit further efficiency wize to bring the price down to what mere mortals can afford, the Visaton B200 with phase plugs is a good candidtae. A 5k XO is pretty low thou.

Those look very sweet. Very close to what I seek!

I was thinking that myself! The dust cap is "Zurette" what ever that means??? Maybe it's there to cause the peak for guitar? I think I'll carefully cut one out and see.
