I think this driver may be discontinued - at least it is not available at PE anymore, the ferrite version of it is available however: Tang Band W5-1611SAF 5" Full Range Speaker 264-918 About $50 USD.

A good TL design by Bjohanessen is available on the TABAQ thread post number 482 at: TABAQ TL for Tang Band

Design is here: http://www.diyaudio.com/forums/attac...-w51611saf.pdf

The simulation looks very good, as all of Bjorn's TABAQ's usually are - flat as a board response in the bass department with extension down into 30 Hz - see attached image from Bjorn's sim. Give it a try, we are all wondering how it will sound.

I don't think this has been built by anyone yet as Bjohanessen only provided the sims recently. Good luck with your build!

Hi all!
If I manage to get to the speakers I'll make TL-box.
Does anyone have these speakers made in any box (vented or compression box or etc).
thank you

Hi Gost, I have a pair of W5-1611 in a box of my own design. I think they sound awesome. I attempted a double bass reflex cabinet to reduce cone excursion but quite frankly my speakers cannot handle deep bass. Perhaps the TL design will work better, and to be honest, had this design been available last year I probably would have built that instead.

Chaz,
I thought that's what the speakers you had in the background behind the cornu photos were. I have always wanted to try a tabaq on a bigger driver. There is someone planning on doing it with the Betsy K driver - 45 in tall.

Hi all!
Hi xrk971!
I made a TL-box for projects db616TL (Parts Express). Is this TL can adjust back box for full range speaker W5-1611sa?
What is the difference between the W5-1611sa and W5-1611saf?
Thank you for your cooperation.
Cheers!
