Default What think about peerless PPB driver

Hi everybody,

I am on developpe my own home speaker system icluding 3way with Cquenz mid driver and ribon tweeter for hifi. This speaker will be used in home theater configuration. I have also planned to build a center channel and suround. The cquenz have polypropylene cone. Due cquenz price i'm searching an another polypropylene cone driver 5.25" for center channel.
I saw the ppb peerless line : HDS134PPB (830860). But as i didin't find some building description around internet community i be a little perplexed. Constructor specification are quite alluring with flat extend frq response, good level of BL/mms, good resonance frequency...I managed to simulating a combo with two of them in MTM for center chanel on speakerworshop with constructor response and impedance curve. They are quite good and easy to filtrate.
I look the overall PPB line, they presents all the same profile. Adding this the price of these drive are quite low with good construction, so have you seen any reason or have any experience that explain why peaople ar' not employing these drive range in diyproject, as we can see the nomex range and the exclusive range in diycommunity and commercial high quality product (Focus audio for example)????

Bets regards Marc

Hi,

Polypropylene is unfashionable, it does not get more complicated than that.

Hi sreten, do you mean that there's no other problem with PPN line that polypropylene cone are good sounding cone but fashion made that are put beside from diyproject? If that's the case I don't mind about fashion, just good sound and performance are important to my eyes...

The nomex range is very good but I've also used a lot of their previous sandwich cone drivers which are PP based. They are fine and probably a bit easier to work with in the crossover as they are better behaved.

I'd ignore what is the flavour of the month and go with your original plan and sensible approach. They are your speakers and you are the only one that they have to please.

Ok thanks for confirmation. I think the PPB cone will match better with the Cquenz one, I will go on with my first way.

No worry Marc, with these PPB cones you'll get the same poor and lifeless sound as with your Cquenz

You will cross the few kilometers between us to judge yourself when it's in function...
