Default looking for a high Q 8" driver

like the topic stats

8" driver
high q design...perferably high .5+
decent x-max of 3-4mm+
decent sensitivity of high 80s+
3.5" or small mounting depth

$50 per driver is a nice starting price range i suppose

Default Maybe this one?

MCM 8" Poly

According to Pjay's driver finder this one's Qts is 0.72.
It's perfect for paralelling with its 16Ohm rating. And the price is right also- around $14.00. Personally I was considering it for a dipole project.
8 per side in a series/parallel configuration for a nice 8Ohm rating with high sensitivity.

No I don't know its depth. MCM has a Tech Support page where you can request additional information.
I suggest you start there.

Is the driver you're looking for going in a car?

Thanks. But he lists these drivers by F3, not Qts. Is that true, or am I missing a page off this website?

Paste the data in a spreadsheet and sort by the Qts column.
