Default best 2 inch 'full range'?

Interested in your opinions, I'm looking for something cheapish with a sweet treble and reasonable power handling..

people in Japan like the w2-800sl at $25 each, but zero bass (qts = .23 and Fs = 160hz).

No clue on power handling.

I'm currently finding uses for the old "Whisper" AuraSound 2in driver personally. That Hiwave is an interesting little unit?!

A 2in wideband driver with power handling is an oxymoron. Although it depends on your definition of 'reasonable', your XO frequency and slope.

its just a big (mid)tweeter, and should be handled like one
but got the advantage of much lower Fs

how about a soft dome PA compression driver, and remove the compression part
even the small 1" drivers have big 35-40mm voice coil

ive used both tb w2 800sl and visaton frs5x. The latter is very cheap and about 30% the performance of the former, to my ears.

edit; the visaton is 90% as good as the TB. a slight touch of that paper cone tweeter sizzle, but its quite benign. The Q is more useful at 0.7 ish, power handling and efficiency is slightly lower than the TB. But, the visaton is a mere 6 euros! I wouldnt use these fullrange using a single driver, neither tolerate bass well, maybe in a small array they could cope at reasonable levels.

That Hiwave does look really interesting.
Its just for desktop speakers, I wanted to use 2 per side and a small sub.

Had some fun with a couple of W2-803SM a while ago. Good power handling size considered. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XsUb...feature=relmfu
