Smile This is not a pro driver - why so cheap?

I know this is a lower quality driver... why is it modeling so well and why is it so cheap... I am new to this... what spec is off.... is it requiring a low crossover or something? It is modeling very well for 2-3 of them in a port.

Default Low cost high performance Peerless woofer

Most manufacturer's have a sweet spot, and with Peerless it is 5"-12" woofers. There is no manufacturer I know of that can compete with Peerless over all in this kind of driver. Their engineers have consistently delivered high performance, cost effective designs for a couple of decades. Nothing like experience!

No magic, just years of hard work and pro level performance.

Looks like a real honey for only $20. USd Not a cast frame, just stamped steel. But for that price you can use 10 a channel and add EQ...

FYI

Agree,Four(Eight drivers in total) in a listening room would be IMO quite perfect...
Another small footprint single folded suggestion:
A T-TQWT using two Peerless-160F25PR01 in a slightly bigger enclosure (109L=~3.87 cu.ft).

Peerless HDS series woofers are used in the Elsinore, see that thread. Also very popular in many highly appreciated commercial European speakers like Amphion
