Default 12" "guitar" driver in Audio Speakers

Anybody heard of using a "guitar" driver as a woofer in a speaker? Listening to live rock (deadhead) and jazz (miles) if that would matter. Paired with a mid/hi range driver or tweeter.
I am looking at eminence drivers.

The 15" Alpha and Beta from Eminence are "classics" for use in Open baffle speakers and they can be also used as "guitar" speakers (of course, the term "guitar" is quite indefinite)


The Lil'Buddy 10" speaker has been used as midrange in speakers.

FWIW, The Lil'Buddy has a great looking response curve, especially for a guitar speaker. Efficient too.

Looks like modded with a phase plug it's even better:

Speakers with no bass sound awful

Maybe you should look at coax drivers
