Default Accuton underhung neodym drivers

Hi,

Did somebody still use:
mid/bass: C 220-T6-220 / c 220NT6
tweeter: C 25N-6-13 / C 13/6
I'm planing to use them as satellites in a three way with the C 79/6 mid to complete my subwoofer (two Speaker HiFi 15SP300ti in 190 liters sealed lowpass 65Hz 24db).
Any feedback appreciated notably about power capabilities, x-over fr and slopes, loading.
Thanks.

Soup is close (C89 instead of C79).

Guys,

Thanks for your links about the Soup and Milestones. In fact I builded the filter for the Soup of a friend of mine and also had the opportunity to listen to the Milestones in Holland.
But, aside the C2-79/6, my question was about the underhung neodym drivers that are different from the "classical" C220 and C2-12/6:

The drivers you have listed are audiophile junk. Find some real speakers

Positive, Shin, positive. If you don't explain what a real speaker is, how is he going to know?

Sorry. Crazyhub and I were having a bit of a joke around about drivers on another forum. Its sort of spilled over from there really.

Pay no attention.

It seems these accuton are really audiophile junk because nobody use them. Maybe would it be better to go with some floppy AT...Oh no, I let these drivers to Shin...ing designers ...

Yeah a driver just doesn't sound right unless its rigid cone is spraying resonance induced harmonics all over the frequency spectrum.

Haha

War still continue. Shin, floppy cones indeed damp their resonances all over the spectrum; instead of pure tones you get damped resonances. With rigid cones, once you electrically damp their (high fr) main resonance you get ONE low harmonic allready fully damped and all the other fr remain clean and unaffected.
Cross the channel and go to Tony's or Marc's homes to really understand the issue of well designed accuton speakers!
