Default Hobby Hifi BB3TL

Anybody had experience with the Hobby Hifi BB3TL based on the Omnes Audio BB3.AL.
BB3TL
Looks like a nice little floorstander suitible for a small room (like mine) That acording to the description works well at lower volumes, which is what i want.

Decided to go ahead with this design, the drivers are on their way to me now.
They will be going into my Ikea Bowl speakers that i originally used for the Bandor 50mm drivers here-
New project actually started ;)
while i make/finish the cabinets.
Depending on how i get on with the sealed sphere's will influence whether i go for the TL cabinets or a sealed/ported bookshelf.
My room is very small (around 8ft square) so well controled bass is a must.

yeah cant wait to get started, its been a while since the last project. will be interesting to compare (from memory) to the larger veravox based driver (5S) and the Bandor 50mm driver.

Those look great. I really like three-inchers, and especially my Omnes BB 3.01 drivers. I'm confident that these will be super.

Its a pity that (if they are great) that Omnes Audio are stopping production of the BB3.AL (and BB3.01 i guess) due to the neodymium magnet prices.

Nothing to stop them having one made with a ferrite / ceramic magnet to produce the same spec. / results. There's no real benefit to it having the Nd magnet from a performance POV, it's just marketing.

For what it is, it's not a bad little driver. I've got a pair in my office speakers which I use for playback of ambient recordings while I'm writing.

Have you heard the FF85K and Bandor 50mm drivers as well? Looking forward to comparing the Bandors and these, the FF85K/FF85WK look interesting as well.
