Default Tang Band W3-1878

HI guys, has anyone got some experiences with this speaker as a Full Range one ? With regards to its high fidelity and low/high frequency reproduction ?

I would like to know your opinion about the speaker, if u're using it for wideband purposes.

Does it represent the upper high frequency ranges well ? good definition ??

What about the low end ?


Do you find it really worth the cash ?

Looks like a perfect candidate for the compact Cornu Sprial horn.

Yes, it has a Hot high end, perfect for Cornu spiral.
It's a nice looking driver but I think for half the price you should go with the 4 inch titanium w4 1337sdif.

Melo,
Nice arrays! You are gonna fill them with the 4 in titanium drivers? I think many of us can only wish we had the ability to chase our hifi diy dreams like you do.

Sprial Cornu is a good idea.
Unfortunately, Speaker TB W3-1878 I would not recommend.
Have a nice day
