Lightbulb 1 driver 150hz-20khz

Hi, I need some help here. anyone know of some descent sized magic driver capable of handling 150hz-20khz(or close) at 95-100db?

Preferably 4" or smaller.

Ive found a few drivers myself, but I want a few suggestions from the "experts" at the forum before i lead you in the wrong direction.

Btw. a listening angle as wide as possible is preferred

They just need to be able to git 95-100 dB peaks (ie 75-90 dB average)?

3" driver audition Fostex/Mark Audio

Alpair 7 too...

Likely a few others. A growing market segment.

You won't likely find any that play that loud continuously. And if you listen that loud fro too long you will start to loose your hearing.

WOW that's loud. That's PA loud. You need to put a xo in there to get that kind of loud. Even at 200 to 15000hz.

Venue / application, space for enclosure type ?"

Since this is the full-range forum, most replies are likely to focus on achieving this with a single driver model (or multiples thereof).

As damaging as even relatively short term exposure at 95dB average at any listening distance would be, there certainly are drivers that could achieve that in very nearfield (1-2meteres) - but filling a 20,000 ft^3 space is a different story.

My first suggestion might be something like Fostex FE126En in a small backloaded horn - could easily dig deeper than 150Hz, and certainly achieve SPLs in the mid 90s., and as tuxedocivic suggested, XO to powered woofers would increase attainable levels and reduce distortion.

Horst, I think ukrain87 is looking for smaller driver, and presumably enclosure type/size?
