And it seems you've found the winner among 6.5-inchers! Thanks for sharing! Large Xmax from XBL2 motor, low distortion, aluminium cone, very good consistency, not so expensive, resurrected to the market... But what about power handling? European market availability?

Search is still in progress, will something unexpected knock down Peerless XLS10/Seas L26RO4Y twins in small cabinet very bottom efficiency besides IPAL monsters?

Last I knew it was still for sale but limited, and was about $259 each. Solen had them, but maybe not anymore...

I,ve been in Your shoes not so long ago and ened up buying a JBL GTO806 second hand. Otber that Your best bet would be Wavecor SW215, its available in one of the online speaker shops here in Poland.

Someone suggested using MFCL woofer from SBAcoustics which indeed does very good job for 8" in small sealed cab: 8'' SB23MFCL45-4 :: SB Acoustics

Which is relevant for SB is rather small cone area considering mounting diameter.

I found solid performers among 12-inchers: Dayton RSS315HO-4 and Peerless XLS12 (P830500). Tymphany claimed (I asked them directly couple days ago) that XLS12 is still in regular production and they assured that it absolutely will not be discontinued.

6.5": (4-6 dm3):

Monacor SPH-170C
Monacor SP-6/100PRO
SB Acoustics SB15MFC30-04 (smaller but can be used in very small cabinets and has large linear xmax)

8" (6-9 dm3)
Monacor SPH200TC
Monacor SPH225C

10" (9-13dm3)
Go 12" here - SPH300CTC - have one right one and its a monster that can work in 35l.

Monacor have a large distribution centre in Poland, maybe they can offer you competitive pricing. They`re in Wroclaw.

That is right planet10. From SB Acoustics what I remember there are two great drivers for tiny sealed cabs: SB23MFCL45 for 8-inch category and SB34SWPL for 12-inch category. They unfortunately tend to have large mounting diameter relative to cone area.
