Default 8" wide range comparison.

I have compared multiple wide-range drivers in an open baffle with bass support using Eminence 15 alpha in Martin style H-frames. For extented midrange use (200 to 4KHz) application with low wattage tubeamps (like miniwatt), the Fostex 208 EZ sounded the warmest and best balanced compared to TB-1808, Fostex 225WK, Eminence 12LTA, AN-10 and some other less expensive ones. However, the 208EZ will need a tweeter whereas the TB1808 can cover the upper range after some taming of the highs.

However the higher efficiency of the 208EZ makes it the most suitable to get live SPL levels even with a 3.5W tube amp. But more the efficiency, bigger the cabinet size to get the same bass extension, or biamplify with bass support. If you are using a "high" powered tube amp, FF225WK with tweeter or TB1808 with a few notch filters (at the cost of narrower dispersion) will allow a floor standing MLTL as a cabinet option.
