Default Tang Band W4-1320SIF $38 @PE

I see that PE has some new TB drivers on their web site that have ceramic magnets including a good looking 4 inch bamboo full ranger for (only) $38.

This is a worthy competitor to the Fostex 4" line.

here's a link:

I guess this is a response to the neodymium price hike. It would be nice to see this with more drivers for sure.
Then again, what do I know?

The neo version, W4-1320SJ, is one of the few small (5 inch and under) full range drivers that I could live with in the long run. It has a remarkably smooth response to the ear and is detailed without being analytical. Lastly, it has (to my ears) no intolerable 'worts'. When used in corners or especially on OB over an H-frame, it needs no frequency contouring (to my ears). It has a lively coherent sound that is characteristic of full range drivers. Its most important shortcoming to my ears is that it does not have as much of the natural, effortless sense of musical flow that some of the larger drivers have. What is needed is a reasonably priced driver that combines both qualities. The SJ's punch way above their price point even now. Hope the ceramic model comes close.

Any updates? is the ferrite version is somehow worse than the standard w4 1320SJ neodymium based driver? the SJ has good reviews.

I am also curious about this driver.

I am making some boxes for alp10, and still have some w4-655sh laying about, but this is next in line for sure.

I may pick up a pair of the w4-1320sjf soon to try out in some old Yamaha surround cabinets that are around 6L... I'm interested in the prospect.
