Default PHY-HP 6"-ish drivers

Hi All,

Does anyone have info on the new PHY-HP 6"-ish drivers? Are they releasing these for DIYers or only OEM? Anyone heard them - opinions?

Cheers
Raymond

I was aware PHY-HP was designing a pressed-basket cheaper versions but assumed they would be => 8" drivers. Then I stumbled across this (4th paragraph) when doing a Diatone search:

http://www.6moons.com/industryfeatur...08/show_2.html

Seems to me that a pressed would be fine for a ~6 1/2" driver. Bronze as used in PHY-HP and some other driver$ seems somewhat gaudy and overkill on 'most any driver. Qualification: I prefer the understated, minimal waste, form-follows-function, and fundamental inherent beauty aesthetic. Others differ.

Cheers
Raymond

"Three different models utilize a 96db/15-ohm/6.3-incher, a 98dB/16-ohm/8-incher and a 97dB/16-ohm/12-incher with PHY coax tweeter respectively. "

Ahh, could be a small misunderstanding

The 6" fullrange is used in the smallest Ocellia speaker design

Not alnico magnet, and Im not sure it has anything to do with PHY

could be but it would've been Srajan Edaen who got it wrong: "Ocellia's speaker lineup is PHY all the way. Three different models utilize a 96dB/15-ohm/6.3-incher, a 98dB/16-ohm/8-incher..."
is that ocellia model on the market or is it vaporware and does the driver look like anything you've seen before?

I havent seen any close/detailed pictures of that 6"
If you have a picture, I would like to see it

Maybe a modified driver or custom made, could be anything
But Im sure its not an ordinary standard driver

Just now Im thinking maybe Supravox could be involved
Or maybe both PHY and Supravox

But so far its nothing but speculation

yeah, i guess it could be a supravox 165 GMF or variant. same sensitivity, five mounting points and from what i can make out of the picture, surround and phase plug looks close.
i couldn't find anything else on that model ocellia.

Supravox HP165 LB looks exstremely nice
Its affordable, and I have considered it as a dedicated midrange driver

On picture of Ocellia it looks to me like they just removed the dustcap, and no center plug either

perhaps but i don't want a 4ohm driver. neither are close to the 15ohm 6.3" ocellia.
