You'll notice they mixed up some of the specs so I would assume they got the 5/15 backward also. 15 RMS when crossed above 800 as recommended will get pretty loud one would think.

15w is probably plenty, I've made people leave the room with a few watts of noise :P

So the TB could be a viable alternative, with a simpler crossover, and higher power handling and maximum output. (both xmax and thermal power handling are higher.)

It's a neat driver.

From their website, it has a lumpy FR and low power handling. I wouldn't touch despite its "prettiness". All show and no go!

Looks funky, but I think in practical terms a 3" fullrange, of which there are now many great units, beats it in vertually every way. Efficiency, power handling, low end extension, flexibility. The Hi-Vi perhaps has wider dispersion is all I can think.
