The Audiobahn driver is specified as having a 2 inch surround on it, so taking into account the curvature of the surround, I would approximate about a 31 inch diameter of the exposed cone. This is just a guess on my part, though.

I would like to hade my word on this. Large speaker driver are far from having a great sound. They lake transient response(there slow to move) so are only suitable to reproduce very low frequency sound.

This would supose to be good but with some cheap 12 - 18 the cone tend continue farther than it would supose to(thats visual but anyways).

Instead of using very big driver it's better to use 1 - 3 small one. Two 12 inch is going to give more cone aera than a single 15 and 2 15 more cone aera and a better overall sound quality than a single 18 inch.

B/C for the same money ($1,000) i'd go with: But again, this is still: a 'big driver' project. I think you could do better with more 'smaller' drivers.

but forgetting flash, if you had $1,000 to spend on drivers and wanted to shake yer house... get 6 Adire Tempests.

(all this is assuming, you have the power to push them properly)
