Hi Brisso57,

sorry, I did not notice there was question, I do not get notified about the posts. This is quite an old thread.
I still do have the drivers, they are mounted on open baffle roughly 1x2ft accompanied with little tweeter. This baffle is sitting on top of closed box woofer, I believe woofer is 12". They are being used in the basement, when I work on the speaker projects. Driven by whatever is around, currently Luxman receiver.

What is the tweeter that you are using?

when you come accross this driver, do not pass it, it sounds wonderfull
i was amazed how much music comes out of this little thingy
i just experimented with a small closed box and later with an open baffle and the midrange was so wonderfull and life like, that i ended up using it instead peerless driver for ht project
this driver is definitely designed as full range, it has quite an extended hights /although I ended up using a tweeter with it/
its bass is not deep, but it's there and in a small closed box actualy sounded pretty balanced
that's all
I just tried this driver (the one you pictured, with a flat dust cap) in a pair of zigmahornets.
Wow! Clarity sizzle and a surprising amount of bass too.
Prior to that I tried another Sanyo FE103A variant. That one has a domed dust cap. The flat-cap variant sounds much better.

cheers

Doug
