Default Vintage OB Drivers

would any of these drivers on this website be good for OB?

max around 150 for a pair

how would they compare to modern ones, Omnes Audio L8 for example?

Default which ones?

well I do liek the Tannoy sound, and they have a pair of Golds, Cheviots and Cheviot 2s... all around 400 UKP

The Tannoys are very well documented and have a huge following (I'd love a pair of any of the good fullranger /dual concentrics.). no need for open baffle though. ...Although if specified correctly could be good.

dont the tannoys have a low QTS, so probably wont really work in OB on their own?

prefably looking for a full-ranger so i dont have to make a crossover, are the Goodmans Axioms good in OB?
