Default Visaton W250S

These are reasonably priced in Aus & good efficiency
anyone used them, or got any measurements?
cheers,

It's a very well documented driver: W 250 S - 8 Ohm

It's OK up to about 2kHz from my estimates. You can model it too: Downloads

The only aspect that you might consider is that it has a pressed steel chassis. If you want a less coloured cast chassis, look around for stuff like this: H1305-08 CA26RFX

re:"look around for stuff like this:" - if only SEAS drivers were available locally any more... freight for big drivers to Aus is a killer for a tightwad like me, & I prefer to source locally.
Looking for some serious woof, 2x 8" SB might be more effective, or I might throw caution to the wind and buy a couple of cheap 15"ers
My mids will be the last of the pre-chinese 5" Peerless 850488, & Peerless tweeter from the same era, really nice low distortion drivers

Pete,

I had them measured once. Decent and simple drivers.
Have to see if I can come up with some more plots.

Thanks Lojzek
Frangus - Scanspeak - overpriced (told you I was tight), Peerless, about the same price as the Visatons, & I've already got a pair of the old 850149s, damn good, but I want to try something else, (Undecided whether to go small, 8" a la 3 way classic, or Monster, 15" drivers. Don't really need another set of speakers, but it's a shame to let those peerless mids/tweeters gather dust in the shed)

Lojzek, did you use delta mass or delta compliance test for generating TS parameters ?

Zvuchniak,

I use weights for TS parameters.
