Yes, did see them on the Parts Express website.

My quick analysis using WinISD tells me it has about the same or slightly better bass extension than my current two way using a Vifa tweeter and Pioneer 8" woofer (B20GR30-51F-Q), both of which were purchased through Parts Express. It was my first DIY speaker project.

The Peerless woofers would make a good, inexpensive two way if teamed up with a higher quality softdome tweeter. There are other 8" woofers that would give deeper bass no doubt, but for the money they aren't too bad for a general purpose system.

Why is the inductance still so high?

I think they are giving you the CSC specs on inductance, not the CSX specs. The CSX version is the shorting ring version. They both make quite good two-ways, which is quite the feat, in reality. There are maybe 10 or so 8" woofers in the world that can work in a two-way system- the CSC and CSX are one design that does. I used the CSC version recently in a two way sealed box, with a Q of approx 1, which is a critical sort of thing with midrange on such a big woofer. It sounds quite nice. IMO, when looking at a two way, the CSC is the superior version.

They seem the bass drivers used here, see details.

A pair is very good for $50 and free shipping (> $49).

Grab 2 pairs while you can if your interested in an ~ 91dB 3-way.
