That's a good opinion to hold, what the linked page says. Who *really* needs 10 liters of swept volume to listen to CDs? we are not after all (most of us) attempting to knock down the walls with bass. I can generally give the guy the point for saying ~music~ may not need the same excursion that HT needs.

That said, I think this is a bit silly. I think if anyone cares to model this particular driver's frequency vs excursion curve, they would find it is overreaching a lot lower than they might like. It may be fine for a near-field monitor setup, but for listening across the room, you'll want a midwoofer at least, possibly.

Where is the edit button?

By that last post, I meant that excursion will limit how loud it can play "full range", specifically low frequencies, if that 0.2mm is correct.

Hi

Have been using the earlier w3-517S1 for some time

in a cored well stuffed 150mm acrylic sphere.

Good from around 200hz up. I have two pairs and

might put one set into a 200mm wood sphere. Will try

and fish out my Clio measurements if I can. Imaging is

great and I might even Dammar one of the pairs to

compare performance.

Is that a found item or did you make them?

Egg shapes?

Hi

They are modified light fixtures from Italy

Must use the thick shell types. I also do spheres

in ceramic, wood and soon lightweight concrete.

May to dome in Ozzie Jarrah hard wood too.

Hi Stocker,

The edit button only seems to stay there for about a half hour or less then simply disappears into computer heaven.

Edit: spelling

Very nice... Any how-to's or guides to picking them out? I'd love to make some gallo-esque sphere speakers!
