Default 15 with low xmax ?

I'm looking for a 15" speaker with LOW xmax. My cabinets are horn loaded and built for two 15s. My old speakers had an xmax of .18. You read that right... (point 18 inch) 4.5mm. They were rated at 107db/w/m. Most of the modern speakers I see have huge xmax figures. Any suggestions appreciated.
Thanks, Mike

Vintage JBL D130 if you can find a good set.

15F500 or 15FH510 may be more interesting

but the 107db you claim must have come from a high frequency peak
