Default Dayton 8" FR PS220 Discussion

This thread is about the Dayton 8" Neo FR driver.

PS220

Which as of this post is now in stock it seems.

The main thing is that this is NOT a DECWARE driver, but a discussion of possible mods and applications seems appropriate.

There is a separate thread on the DECEWARE driver. Here:
DECWARE THREAD

Fwiw, I ordered two just to see for myself... and for fun.

I think we had this one before when it first appeared, although it may be buried on another thread.

Anyway, appears to be a good unit for its type, decent connectors, powerhandling / efficiency look reasonable too. I don't much care for the neodyminum magnet, but at least it's not one of those Micky Mouse affairs with a ring of small magnets (ignore the sales talk -they do the multiple ones because it's cheap) instead of a single item.

Yeah, tough crowd over there. Good to see a die-hard multi-way designer like Curt take on a project like this.

For anyone in Aus, HAS Audio in NZ (Hasaudio Speaker Components - International Suppliers of Speaker Components and Speaker Kits) has the PS220 and the PS180 for a pretty good price at the moment.

Not for long.....once the Neo market value translates to current or new inventory orders expect these drivers to go up 40% or more like all neo drivers.

China restricting exports on rare earth metals continue

The price has shot up 100% in the last two weeks! If you want your Neo speakers--you are already too late unless you can dig up some NOS deals out there.

Wow... a niuce driver but i thot they were a bit pricey when they were ~$200 each.

Looks like anything that relies on neo could price itself out of the market pretty quick
