Urgent Help - Munny FR Drivers???
My 10 yr old son decided that for his scientific fair project he wants to build a pair of 7" Munny Doll speakers, as per PE instructions. For this project PE uses the Dayton 2-1/2" FR ND65-8 (4 Ohm version also avail.). Apparently it fits perfectly, and the specs on this little driver are too good to be true, 80Hz - 20kHz, though Sensitivity is 78.3 dB; most of the other drivers in this category are around 110+ Hz to 18+ kHz, and 82+ dB. The other thing is that the baffle cutout for the Dayton's is 2.05", while for others is closer to 3", flange dims. is also small for the Dayton, and I don't know if the Munny Doll head will hold a larger driver.
The drivers are $19.30 ea. (they better be good). I was thinking that for around $40.00 I can buy other less expensive 2-1/2" drivers, and buy a 6" Aura Woofer (PE Buyout), and for around $30.00 worth of drivers, have the doll PC speakers, and a "subwoofer" (maybe passive), powered by the same Dayton DTA-1 T-Amp that will be used to power the speakers.
Any recommendations, as far as driver goes? This is a project that will be done by a 10 yr old, so needs to be simple, but at the same time exciting for him. Your input is appreciated.
