I found this but don't understand Dutch - well I think its Dutch.

The crosover suggests the driver isn't as smooth as the curves
on the Monicor site show, but there are no measurements.

another combination that fell on my mind is to use Monacor SPH 170 as a midbass.it is a rather cheap driver with pretty good freq response and it can go pretty low judging by parameters given by monacor.

Ive had the sph-165 kep in a 4 way system for a number of years by now, it actually performs pretty close to monacor's specs. I have been quite impressed with it, especially counting in that back when I bought it, it was about 90USD, but counting out the fact that it's relatively cheap, it's a good mid-bass at any price.

Only got one bad thing to say about them, the colour of the cone is changing over time, and its not an insignificant change.

Hello Magura,

Is this speaker "the secret tip" I've been waiting for? Could you compare it with another midrange? (I know, I know, that's a dangerous question to ask...)

I will try to stay clear of the usual gibberish....and stick to the facts.

I would compare it to and have had something to do with lately, scan speak 15M/4531K00. The scan speak is like 3 times as expensive, and it caused me a lot of trouble to get the XO right, in fact I'm not sure it's right still.

In my opinion Monacor is very overlooked when it comes to speakers. The quality of their top range units is very high, the support offered by monacor is very fine, and they are very cheap compared to most other brands. I have built a few speakers with monacor units, it's been a pleasent surprise every time.
