Default full range dipole options in north america

I'm actually in canada but many repeated attempts to get the beyma 8ag/n from speaker shop have come up fruitless..

i'm at a loss to find either the beyma 8 ag/n, ciare ch250 or even that senon yd1256 driver that was more recently mentioned.

Are there ANY high q full ranges around in canada or the usa that i could cut my teeth on? i've got a nice w-frame sub but have been searching forever to make it to some nice drivers up front. already have some nice supertweeters ready for the project also.

Based on what others have said on this forum and elsewhere the ciare is the speaker offering the most for the least in a fullrange OB speaker.

Though its not listed on their site (ch250), these people are the North American Distributors of Ciare and they don't have inflated prices:

http://www.assistanceaudio.com/08_Ciare.html

email them or give them a ring, you never know what will happen..

You could consider the Radio Shack 40-1271 which is available in Canada. I'm embaressed to say that I have yet to do anything with my pair.

Look for them on clearence, I got mine for $5 each.

Default Try Solen

If you want some stuff that is a little better go to and http://www.solen.ca/d they have the fostex line, Seas also does some quasi fullrange stuff. On the west coast there is http://www.acoustic-technologies.ca/products.html Happy hunting.

I understand that the Pioneer full ranger works well on OB especially for only $25. http://www.partsexpress.com/pe/showd...number=290-045
It's good enough to be mentioned in the LSDG at http://ldsg.snippets.org/sect-3.php3

Has anyone heard that Goldwood? At that price it's worth getting just to play around with and try to tweak good sound from it.

Also, since you already have dipole bass, you don't necessarily need a high Q driver. If you can get up to 150-200hz with your dipole woofer, you can use almost any driver.

i use solen fairly frequently.. they are by far the best canadian resource for us DIY'ers in my opinion..

due to the positioning of my w-frame i dont like to use it above 90Hz, so i dont need anything that goes super low but at least to 100Hz.

Have you considered vintage drivers? I recently ran across a pair of 12" vintage full range drivers. I put them on an open baffle and was quite impressed with the sound, not quite as good as my fostex 108e sigmas, but very close, and I got them for free. There have been quite a few threads about vintage drivers suitable for open baffle on the full range driver forum recently.

just a thought.
