Default Horn driver needed help finding one?

I need a driver that has the following parameters for a horn clone build! So far this driver has eluded me! See if you can guess the driver I'm trying to find a replica of?

I need,

Fs 26Hz
Qts 0.2
Qms 2
Qes 0.22
Vas 350l
SPL 95dB

All in a 15" driver.

Thanks

For a base horn driver, pick from one of these:
Precision Devices International Limited
The 18" and larger versions are interesting as well.
Regards,
WHG

Hi,

The specs look very Tannoy, and its not that hard to find
similarly specified professional drivers at the higher end.

rgds, sreten.

Thanks looks good I want to build replica horns that use the Monitor Gold, just checking what sort of cost I'm looking at.

Vas is way too low for the low Fs versions. My 515Bs are around 600 L and I've seen them as high as 1 K!
