Ok, but for this build ( simple computer speakers) it looks like the old version is more suited, if the specs are correct.

Indeed. Sealed old one has about 10 hz on the new 6M, but, for example for a bessel Q, old needs close to 20 litre, new 3.6 litre.

Vented the old one has a more degrees of freedom. Still somewhere between 5 & 10 Hz, and not as large a differential in box size.

But when it comes to quality & finesse, Mark has made huge strides with all the Gen 2 drivers.

It is a 3" driver, trying to get too much bass, erodes the critical midrange. You'll need a helper woofer to get real bass with either.

Only if the only criteria is quantity over quality.

The uFonken is a killer computer speaker, the A6M has 30 hz over it (we'll soon see on quality)

Because of the application it won't be used too loudly but its just a fun project, thats the point isnt it?; I will probably hook it up with a Sure 25 watt amp.
