Here are my sealed sims. The EL70 can be a bass monster in the right enclosure, good to the 40s. Some who have built big twin EL70 boxes have packed away their subwoofers.

The parameters of the 2 differ very little, certainly within deviation of parameters due to weather or just normal large batch unit-to-unit variation.

Hi,

Bass extension and bass volume capabilities are two very different things.
I quite agree that bass extension/capability is not very related to quality.

I also agree such drivers can produce more than adequate bass for some
people, for some people surprisingly more than adequate, but nevertheless,
such small drivers cannot do really good loud bass, it is simply impossible.

rgds, sreten.

Proper 40Hz ? not a chance ....

Certainly a pair of 4" drivers is no substitute when it comes to moving a lot of air, but these leave a llot of people wondering

One of my FAST builds (just needs assemble & XO) will use 2xEL70 for bass support of an Alpair5

i can testify, 15 years ago, a friend showed me some towers he has just purchased, 3 or 4" drivers, they got REALLY LOW, even i, a hardened 'bass head' that has had up to 2500 wrms in my car (check my screen name) was impressed.

im sure modern smaller drivers and box designs do it better.

CHR is good, but wn't generate bass like the EL70. Bob specifically asked Mark to build this capability in.

For small enclosure, worth the stretch IMHO.

The Tangband W5-1880 seems interesting and within your budget.
