I happen to be using the 830870 as helper woofers in another speaker using the successor to the FF85k used in the MTM. The Peerless does better at the low end of the range (hence as XO on the order of 200-300 Hz -- still working on the detail of that), the Fostex better everywhere else, and it extends fairly smoothly up to 20k+.

Have you tried the inexpensive Fountek FE85? I'm wondering how it compares to the two you mentioned.

I have tried (and still have some -- pre neo price jump) FF88ex (a case bought when you couldn't get any FF85).They are good, but don't compare.

Thanks.

Ever tried one of these little 3" or less drivers mounted in a waveguide?
