Dayton DC28F-8 ($20) - The popular "silkie" returns with a redsign and hopefully some consistency. Response is relatively smooth but harmonic distortion is average to poor. It will work crossed LR4 at 2kHz or higher. Not the best value in the under $20 range. Only 3 screws on a flange this big is a bad idea. Tested February 2006.

Looks a lot like the Audax TW010F1 or AW010E (square faceplate) series.

That same body is available in many places under different names. The trick is to get the one that's similar to the Jamo. Maybe it is the Audax, who knows? Even Radio Shack had those back when they sold raw speakers.
