Default full range (open baffle)

hello, in my search for vintage open baffle drivers, i came across saba, telefunken, coral

but now i found goodmans. It's a pitty that they aren't documented on the internet, i have searched for hours, but didn''t find anything decent.


i wanna run a speaker in full range, helped by a supertweeter and a subwoofer.

so here are my question,

goodmans axiom 10
goodmans twin axiom 10
goodmans twin axiom 8

has anybody heard of these.
thanx a lot guys

Even I have heard of Goodmans, and I am over here. Very famous English brand.

A Google search of "Goodmans Axiom" seemed to yield promising results. This post is one-the Thiele-Small parameters for a different model of Goodmans:

All praise be to uncle KYW as it was reading about that very loudspeaker that prompted me to go out and buy my 201's. And I have never looked back.

I believe that the Axiom range was designed by Ted Jordan when he was chief designer at Goodmans. It was probably modified by Doreen Bance of Bandor so that the assembly girls could build them.

I wonder if there is any connection between the Goodmans Axiom line and the Fane Axiom line. Did Fane buy out Goodmans?

I think that Axiom is a useful name for a hi-fi speaker as the Cambridge dictionary tells us:

Definition
axiom
noun [C]
1 FORMAL a statement or principle which is generally accepted to be true, but is not necessarily so

So Fane used it as well as Goodmans, the lattr being out of production before Fane took up the name.

Then_Dude, why do you limit yourself to those three drivers?

hello nuuk,

(first made my input device, hahaah because i couldn't type the ' symbol anymore haha)

why do i limit myself ?

well i don't, ebay does it for me,

i wanna buy an crazy good loudspeaker, so i'm on the search for a very good full range, which i wanna supoprt by a sub and supertweeter.

the thing is, that the subs will be used in a project within 5 years to do the low end of an electrostatic diy speaker. But until i don't know how to bow the ESL, i'll stick to the dynamic speakers, which are much easer and cheaper to get. But i ran into some goodmans on the ebay,, and didn't find anything about them; So i'm aslo interested in coral and telefunken and saba. But i hear a lot good things about goodmans, also on your site, (i have red the whole story also about the glainecone amp: very interesting). so that's why i posted this, maybe anyone had specs or most of all experience with this driver

thanx a lot
