Sonido SFR175 in compact triangular cross section labyrinth enclosure. Compact - if to compare with BLHs.

how do the sonido's sound?

i couldn't find much feedback for them in 'English' speaking parts of the world (pardon the phrase).

I was very interested in the SWR 300.

For me its best value/money I`v tried in fullrange category. Its hard to describe sound by words. If to be short - I am satisfied). Built a lot of speakers with them.
300SWR is good driver, but as any big diameter fullranger - better to listen from 3 meters, not closer. I like it very much, used it recently in big volume labyrinth enclosure. Gives big scale of images and is suprisingly transparent for 12incher.

Overall of Sonido have detailed, but smooth balanced and comfort sound. Due to flat wire coil at SFR types - highs are now stretching up to 20K and more transparent. Need to burn in 150-200 hours.

You can check more sonido projects at my page noted below, in signature part.

I haven't heard of them before. Looks very good. I mainly use the Fostex FE206En (8").

I compared with FE series, sonido is winner for me. More smooth sound and better integration of small and big cones.

Great work Charcoal, I enjoy the attention to detail!

In our local (Central European) Audio Community we’re ‘hearing’ more and more good things about the Sonido drivers lately. The 300SWR is an interesting driver, there are not that many full-range drivers of this size around, and it actually models very well in an Onken Enclosure, with Onken alignment (if you can handle 200 or so liters). Better than any modern driver of its kind that I’ve seen these past few years. If only time wouldn’t be the limiting factor here, I’d be arranging a date with some 25mm Baltic Birch right now…

i am looking for a large full range driver for a large room, this is one of the few promising drivers on the market.

just take care - if your room is VERY large, oneway speaker can be sometimes not enough, or rather not so universal as you`d like. Of course depends what and how loud you like to listen... It is about any oneway speaker, regardless of the driver used.
As for me - I am im love with that speaker.
Ronmeister, thanks ))

Charcoal - very smart looking. I would assume high efficiency.
