UK source of inexpensive 3" or 4" driver - high efficiency
 
Hi,

any suggestions for a source here in the UK ?

The only one I can think of is Wilmslow Audio - they sell the Fostex FE83E and FE103E.

CPC prob. your best bet.

By the way, welcome back Sreten - over a year without a post, I'm sure I'm not the only one who wondered where you'd gone...

UK? Inexpensive? Has something happened over here that I don't know about? :D

Vikash's site uses them from a 'Zaph' design

Maybe what you're looking for?? Not overly sensitive though.

Hi Guys,

thanks for all the replies - though I should explain what I'm after.

I want to update a late 50's valve bass combo with a bright box.

The BB is a horizontal array of 4 3" drivers, 3 4" drivers or 2 6x4
drivers. It will also have a series capacitor for bass limiting and to
reduce the loading on the valve amplifier in the bass.

The bass amps output if your lucky is ~15 watt, with the series
capacitor power handling is not an issue, nor is "sound quality".
The loading of the array must be higher than 8 ohms.

The bass combo has a 15" alnico magnet driver - so the
ideal units would be NOS old high efficiency (TV?) drivers,
very bog-standard paper cone, dust cap and surround.

:) /sreten.

Hi all,

thanks for the pointers. Think I found what I needed - using 4 of :

http://cpc.farnell.com/jsp/endecaSea...=AR70946&N=411

for a ~ 5" by ~ 14" array should hit 98dB/W - ~ what's needed.
