have you damped the stamped basket with anything? playing with other drive units with stamped baskets, it makes a huge difference to the sound.

think i also read somewhere on here, that there's a definite improvement between the cast frame super 8's and the stamped frame ones.

Ditto encasing the motor in open cell foam or felt and depending on how the motor is attached to the frame, adding a thick bead of epoxy to stabilize this joint/raise its resonance to make it easier to damp, though some folks prefer to fill this area with modeling clay or similar to try and push the resonances lower.

Loud is Beautiful if it's Clean! As always though, the usual disclaimers apply to this post's contents.

I measured super 8 a couple of years ago for a customer. Qts came back much higher then declared. Don't remember which exact model it was but it sounded good OB and very muddy in the ported cabinet. Also, not sure if the specs changed over the years.
Distortions and CSD were quite nice for a paper driver. Much better then Fostex IMO.
But I would suggest checking TS on your own.
