Default Martin Sound ~ Anyone seen this?

..Especially this one, although while attempting to model it in WinISD Pro with what little information they provide, it gave me a much lower sensitivity of 83.23 dB. I'm sure they're probably not fantastic by any means, but I'm wondering just how decent they really are. Anyway, I've been on the look out for a driver that's similar yet better than the Dayton Series II 15's for a similar price, hence my possible interest in these drivers. Crossed over 100-200 Hz, very clean, any freq response nasties as far as possible from the xover point, sealed cabinet with EQ, lowest FS possible, 8 ohms (will use 2 per cabinet), no foam surrounds, good sensitivity, 8+ mm xmax. If you have any good recommendations, post 'em. If nothing else turns up, then the Dayton Series II's it is..

Sugg. List $ 119.00
OUR PRICE : $ 87.26/ea.

Just to refreshify anyone's memory who might need it:

I've never used it myself, but it seems like it could fit your needs...

Hi freddi. Looks like you've had some personal experience with this woofer? Would you happen to remember how accurate the specifications were? I'm a little confused with the VAS.. 1.27 cubic feet? Is that correct?? With these specs in WinISD pro, I'm getting a -6 dB EBS alignment with only 2 cubic feet at just over 15 Hz! This can't be right, can it? Any idea?

Thanks so much!

..Looks like they left the 6 out of "16.27" on their PDF for the VAS.
