I have build the small Wavecor monitor, WA101 from FreQuence and to mention one thing; it is realy fast responding in the transients. I have it combined with a subwoofer and together it is hard to beat - especially looking at price/performance.

I can get those Wavecor drivers down here, and at a reasonable price.

I have ideas of doing something using the 5" ferrite drivers soonish.
Not sure if their tweeters actually match their mids very well though (they only have the 30mm ones listed here). I would like to see a smaller diam tweeter with better off axis higher up.

They certainly do look interesting, though.

Hi,

I have designed a small closed and ported sub (passive radiator) with the Wavecor SW263WA03-01 ten inch 4 Ohm alu subwoofer.

*Very nice, no driver noise, low rms, very practical TSP and very good build quality.

Click the image to open in full size.

The passive radiator design. 31.5 Liters -3dB@24 Hz. The closed box is 22 liters -3dB@40 Hz.

Their mini 17 cm alu subwoofer got a great review in the last hobby hifi (German Diy audio magazine).

Kind regards
Roland Breteler

*Do notice i am Wavecor dealer.

Looks fine the subwoofer you have mede. There is another one here where they compair it with 4 other 10" woofers: http://www.frequence.dk/sites/pca-subwoofers-10.htm

It seems they have all the drivers available on the site www.frequence-shop.dk

Thanks for the compliment about my design.

It's powered with a 250 Watt class D plate amp, the passive is on the opposite side to te woofer in the cabinet.

Th wavecor's are free from the typical subwoofer sound. The sound that says "i hear a subwoofer somewhere". Probably due to the low rms and the low self noise. The woofer does not need tons of power to get moved.

Regards
Roland

PS I maybe a dealer that's a bit over enthousiastic. But if i am wrong about these drivers, i will look like a fool.

Will this woofer go as high as 300Hz or even 500Hz?
I'm looking to experiment with a wall sub/woofer much like the new lyngdorf BW1 unit.

This unit looks like it would play well in a small closed box.

I have failed to find a frequency responce chart for the wavecor unit.

Hi,

I tested the 26 cm closed sub below 53 hz with a pair of hornspeakers and upto 90 hz with a pair of monitors. So no experience with this driver any higher.

Cone break up is at 2000 hz and the voice coil induction is 0.85 mH for the 4 Ohm version. So it may* work.

*on paper

You list the cone breakup at 2kHz, can you point me to a frequency responce plot ?
