I think baffle step effect occurs much higher in frequency.
looks like it happens at 400-600hz region here.
and rising frequency from 2k and above is energy storage or cone resonance, whatever you call it.

Bob, your plots look similar to what I got. No single curve looks really great, BUT the average of all the curves - which corresponds reasonably well with the power response - is quite good. Something else educational here: the on-axis curve does not begin to paint a complete picture, nor does any other single curve.

Duke or Bob, would these be a drop in replacement for a Visaton B200?

Konut, I don't think so. The Visaton has VERY different T/S parameters. In my opinion not even the W8-1808 would be a drop-in replacement. I think the Hemptone (from the makers of Tone Tubby) 8" fullrange may be a possible alternative to the Visteon. Supravox makes another possibility, the 215 Bicone.

There is nothing like a "drop in replacement". A different driver makes a different speaker.

Well yeah. I was hoping for something with less of a peak in the 4k to 7k range, and a little more efficiency than the B200 that was the same dimensionally yet was close enough in T/S parameters to drop in my aperiodic boxes. Hope springs eternal.

Thanks Bob,
for the detailed measurement,
my Saxophon and the RDH20
horn would work.

I didn't measure the distance, I just noted this while setting up the break-in frequency/power. My guess is that it is in th 5-6mm range. It really shouldn't be an issue at anything but dangerous SPL levels. Note that in my cabinet, a stereo pair will produce 105dB/w/m at 10 watts exceeding Xmax below 30Hz. Unlike Fostex or Lowther drivers, the TB really needs a high pass filter to eliminate infrasonics.

The 1772 is a very clean, low distortion driver. Under normal full-range rules, dynamic compression should not be an issue. However, Doppler distortion is still an issue, even more so since there is +/- 3mm travel available. I can hear this as I progress through Vivaldi > Beethoven > Pink Floyd > Led Zeppelin. Dynamics in the lighter stuff is super, but the heavier stuff starts to get muddy.

Bob
