Default Auratone 5C Clone?

What does a Auratone 5C sound like?
I heard it was a Pioneer 4.5" driver but its not made anymore.
What driver is a good replacement?

This was a recording studio speaker that is suppose to suck but sound like common car stereos and ghetto blasters of the time.

I've built one like described here:
Auratone DIY

With this cheap Maplin speaker 51/4? 60W Shielded Bass/Mid Woofer : Hi-Fi Speakers : Maplin Electronics

Sounded ok for its purpose.

This is my version of the auraclones. They have a nice and clear midrange.

I wonder if Dayton PA130-8 can work well here. It's a nice full range and probably perfect for 100Hz to 10k in a small sealed box.

Google images is your friend. The Fostex FE127E or F120FX all will have a significant rising response that I think will bite your ears off.

Look at the response on this graph +9dB rise from 2k to 7k of shout.
No thanks. I thought there was a compensation circuit?

Yes See in the previous post in the same thread: The "crossover" consists of a parallel impedance compensation network (R2, C1) along with a baffle step compensation filter (R1, L1).

The curve above includes the compensation which took it down a few dB. Still there though.

By contrast I think this response is a lot more pleasant.
