OK, how about this? Peerless SLS 830668. Reasonable price and a good reputation for working up into the midrange better than most pure subwoofer drivers like the XLS series.

hmmm, looks good. and a good price too (often Wilmslow seem to be pretty expensive).

Is there any great reason you would choose this over the XLS? Excluding the 20 difference. I have read the XLS works well in a 20L cabinet, for small subs. As I have the luxury of building a bigger cabinet, maybe this is a drawback.

If I crossed the woofer at say 150Hz, realistically what frequency would the driver still be playing at, dave mentioned playing nice up to 1Khz.


With the help of Wine, I now have WinISD working on my mac, and so can start modelling, if I figure out how to use it and input all the data!

Don't forget the Dayton RS series 10. Not bad for the price. I too like the peerless and Seas. See what SB has to offer.

...54 exl VAT.

These appear to be coming in around 62 from other sites, which still seems reasonable. The XLS are 70 on ebay at the moment, but are listed at well over 130-160 ea on other sites. Perhaps a shame to miss out on a bargain, they are 4Ohm though..?

I originally was working this out for a 12"/15" driver, but changed this for aesthetic reasons. But would rather have one larger driver than try and integrate two.

Anyone used this site?

SB has quite a few options I really like for the FAST idea. But not sure what the availability is like in Europe.

lautsprecher.de has tangband, maybe worth a look.

I guess you mean Strassacker: Lautsprecher - Boxen - Selbstbau.

The Tangbands above 6" jump up in price hugely, and I think 6" is just too small...Can anyone truly recommend using smaller drivers for low pass in place of large ones when cabinet size isn't an issue?
