Default Guitar/Bass-Guitar Loudspeakers used as Bass-Midrange for Home Audio Applications

Several years ago I recall, that I have build-in as replacement a guitar loudspeaker (''8, alnico version) instead a typicall HiFi-Speaker for the frequency range 80-2500 Hz in a diy satellite box. The design for the new crossover network was not very easy but not impossible (Bassyst was very helpful therefore). The sonic results was very good.

For new projects I miss the Thiele-Small parameter values for this kind of speakers as you will see about the follow URLs:
Guitar - Celestion - Guitar, Bass & Pro Audio Speakers
Fane International - AXA Series Guitar Speakers
Fane International - Medusa Series Guitar Speakers
Signature | Eminence Speaker
Acoustic Series | Eminence Speaker
Overview: Eminence
Guitar / Bass | Eminence Speaker
Jensen
Vintage Alnico | Jensen Loudspeakers
Completly overview of the good known brands:
Loudspeakers for Guitar/Bass Use - Thomann UK Cyberstore

From where I can get this parameters?

Hi,

The distortion profile of guitar and bass guitar speakers generallly makes
them unsuitable for hifi , as does the frequency response profile, it makes
the crossover more complicated than it needs to be.

PA drivers are generally more suitable for high efficiency hifi speakers.

Manufactures websites should contain links to the parameters.

rgds, sreten.

I know, that this is the basic rule. Nevertheless, the temptation exists to use such an instrumental transducer for home-hifi, particularly such models with alnico magnet system. Typical hifi transducers with alnico driving system are much more expensive than such for instrumental/guitar applications. Supravox is an example.

No - I don't find it (except the non instrumental chassis).
