Default 4" full range for drive-in speaker...

Hello all, searched but didn't find much on this. I am retrofitting some old rca drive-in movie speakers to be used as surrounds/sfx for a live theater application. The original drivers in the enclosures are all pretty much toast so I'd like to put some new ones in. What are your suggestions for a good affordable 4" full range. They will not play that loud so power handling is not a huge issue, but there will be about a dozen of them so price is an issue here. I've looked through parts express but I have so experience with any of the full rangers they have. Thanks!

If this is outdoors, you may have luck with marine speakers from a boating supply. If it's an indoor application, see if the new FS125 from Creative Sound Solutions will fit the box.

The Visaton FR10 might be a contender if you can find a source in north America, in Europe they are available from;
http://www.spectrumaudio.de/
and they cost €13.50

At http://www.spectrumaudio.de there is a very practical comparison table for all tangband fullrangers. I`m shure you find something with the right Vas here.

I purchased a pair of each of the following 4” “full range” drivers from Parts Express to experiment with in single driver rear horn enclosures. They sound surprisingly alike; the differences are not dramatic. The Pioneer is the least expensive; approximately half the cost of the Tang Bands. For your purposes, the Pioneer would probably suffice.

TB 656S, TB 616S, TB 654S and Pioneer W-47-04 204

Thanks to all for the replies. I looked at all the mentioned drivers and settled on some pioneers PE has on special for $.49ea!! Can't go wrong to try em out at that price, and thier specs looked good enough for the application. If they sound like crap I'll only be out a few bucks and will try others. Thanks!

I also bought four of the 49 cent Pioneers. They're a bargain for sure.
