Hi,

2" inverted soft dome ? I'm not aware of such a beast .....

I'm also no expert on Australian driver availability.

THe Hi-Vi DMB-A seems good value, see tests at www.Zaphaudio.com .

Thiel/Accuton makes a 2" inverted dome...ofcourse its a hard dome and not soft there should be a new one with higher sensitivity and more wideband, but seen yet...theres also a 3", but not very wideband

Is this not a 2" inverted dome?:

Hard cone either way...

Morel MDM-55 is supposed to be quite good

Default or the Aura Sound NSW2-326-8A

which is used in Dr. Linkwitz's Pluto speakers. Not a "soft dome," but quite usable, and cheap too.

Default i was confused

sorry guys this is like the first time talking about speakers to other lovers of audio i ment that they are convex or dome out, concave is what i have for all other drivers (woofer subs and orginal mid)

thanks guys

I was looking at some of the older Morel MDM 55 dome mids but they are expensive for this project

is it true that a smaller diameter dome mid will do equal to or more frequency range as a big surface area cone such as the ones I'm currently using.

just verifiing that, ithink the morels will be a hit, a bit on money spending is in order guys
