Default 8" Bass driver for 6L sealed cabinet

I have a specific application for a 8" bass driver to cover 80 to 400Hz and hopefully flat to 700Hz. It needs to reach 110dB and handle 150W RMS.

The trouble is it needs to fit in a 6L cabinet (well stuffed and lined with blackhole 5). I will have a 12" subwoofer underneath this and above this is a unity horn.

Does anyone have any experiences/suggestions for such an application?

I would prefer not to change the baffle cutour but have admittedly been looking at 6 1/2" bass/midbass drivers. I do have a DCX so I can work with a driver that is close to the fit.

Thanks for your time

The closest thing i can think of is CSS SDX7. Q=0.7 in 7 litres. With all the damping you have, Q should come in a bit below that in your box.

Hi Dave. Good suggestion! The xmax is great. Just wish it was a little more efficient. Have you found that it matches the T/S in the ones you have used?
