Default Multi purpose 15" drivers

Hi

i'm am looking for a 15" High efficiency driver that will fit for 2 purposes.

Primarely they will be used for an OB speaker, with 2 drivers per speaker. with an active crossover(perhaps miniDSP) and the second purpose is PA horn sub.

The drivers i have looked at are the Fane Pro 15-600LF
I already know that they will fit the horn design that i have in mind very well.

My setup is also being used for parties, festival and stuff like that. so i have to be able to use the drivers for both thinks. because a student income doesn't really allow bying drivers for both purposes.

BUT my question is, do you think they will provide surfficient low end in a narrow open baffle.
I will be able to boost the low end a bit. but an xmax of 6.9mm might limit a bit.


If not, what driver would you recommend at the approcimately the same price?

PS i know how to simulate horn speakers. but unfortunately not OB speakers.
I'm also looking into optimising my OB subs. So if you have a link to a good OB simulation guide that would be quite helpful

With a QTS of .35 that 15-600 will need a lot of bass bost. You might look at the OB articles by Martin King.

I know i will require some equalisation with the driver i picked with its low QTS. my question is only if it has a high enough Xmax to handle being used in an OB.

I don't se why the Fane 15XB would alot different from the 15-600LF in an OB speaker. But it is WAY out of my pricerange anyways.

I know that Troels Gravesen have used an Eminence Delta II 2515 with succes. it has almost the same specs. but only 4.8mm Xmax.
Troels used them in a WIDE!(As in really WIDE(!) baffle) but he only used one driver per speaker. So figured i could use 2 drivers with a narrow baffle.

Already read the 2 articles by Martin King

in 20 sq. m room I never had problems with xmax with listening music, even when neighborous at ground floor listened this music either (my flat is on second floor).
reproducing 15 hz sinus at the same level can damage speakers, of course
my flush\inwall\ib system
