Default List of the most suitable drivers for extremely small cabinets

Hi, I am searching for specially designed bass drivers capable of great extension from very small sealed cabinets. Large power handling, large Xmax and good linearity are the priorities as well as reasonable price. Drivers are to be used in active DSP system.

For now, I am gathered some of examples:

6.5": (4-6 dm3)
Peerless SLS-P830946
Wavecor SW182BD01/02 (Discontinued)
Tang Band W6-1139 SI/SIF

8" (6-9 dm3)
Wavecor SW223BD02
Tang Band 740x
Tang Band 1363SB
Tang Band 1747A
Dayton Audio RSS210HO-4

10" (9-13dm3)
Peerless XLS10 (P830452)
Seas L26RO4Y

etc..

Do you have any more examples? or any better ideas? Did you work with these drivers? Which of them would you recommend best?
Thanks!

Hi I suggest you download and play with winlsd. I am only familiar with the 830452 which I can say works excellently in a 38l sealed box, but I am in a smallish house. what airspace do you want to fill? I assume small cos you want small boxes . Budget + small + bass = SB17nrx + 29mm tweeter in a 15-18l sealed or vented box.
I'm sure others have their favorites

I have already written:

6.5-inch driver: 4-6 dm3
8-inch driver: 6-9 dm3
10-inch driver: 9-13dm3

Devialet Phantom is a good example but you cannot go do DIY shop to simply buy Devialet drivers...

Peerless P830452 (XLS10) and Seas L26RO4Y are deffinitely the kings of 10-inch drivers for extremely small enclosures but Seas is more expensive and takes more place inside of enclosure. What about smaller drivers?

Wolf thanks! Especially HiVi driver looks nice and seems it is capable subwoofer but can I buy it for DIY? I found little info on this and it is discontinued on PE.

Very good find, marginally worse than mighty Peerless P830946 and cheaper as well. Unfortunately it is rare in Europe so searching is still in progress.
