Or this one? Dayton Audio PS220-8 8" Point Source Full-Range Neo Driver

Higher q drivers are better. I am thinking .5 or higher.

Actually I realized the horizontal width of a 15'' driver would be awkward since it would extend beyond my face..not that I'm against it if it sounds better anyway.

Good point, but I thought .7 was the minimum for OBS/infinite baffle?
How relevant is qts when the driver is sealed around your ears?

Those full range drivers have whizzer cones.

I would caution against using them, as the whizzers could result in a piercing treble when the 8" speakers are placed close to the ears.

A single diaphragm 8" speaker may provide a better frequency balance in your application.

Not the same. Take any open FR driver and put it close to your ear. Notice the bass?

Doesn't need to be sealed around your ears, just positioned close to them.
