4" midwoofer for mini 2 way
Monacor have a 4" midbass which goes amazingly deep and works well in a small box but has limited output, 84db/1W. If it fits your bill, have a look at it, SPH-100C. Although small, I wouldn`t cross it above 2Khz, ideally to a fullrange much lower.

Its no deal breaker imo and sufficiently close to x/o in most cases.

Dayton Audio ND105-8 looks like more as a miniwoofer with pretty low sensitivity. I forgot to say but i wll be using speakers with subwoofers. So i don't need extra bass from satellites. 80Hz will be enough.

So Dayton RS125 vs SB12PAC25. Any opinions ? 53-54/pair vs 41/pair.

Honestly, I think the HiVi M4N might suit your box size better. They have a higher Qts, and I used them in a 4.5ltr stuffed/ported box to reduce the ripple and improve the response. If you run them sealed/stuffed, you'll likely get about what you desire.

Later,

I've thought about HiVi B4N too. Qts is high enough for sealed box for shure. Sensitivity is 80Db. Cheap. How do you like HiVi M4N? Do you have real experience with any mentioned drivers above?

I have some speaker's cabinets and want to make budget mini 2 way monitors. Volume is about 4L. I consider right now some 4" speakers for use in that project:

- midwoofers Dayton RS125-4 (8), Dayton RS125P-8. I would be grateful for the feedback from those who had the opportunity to compare them. For a long time I wanted to but never used speakers with metal cones.
Also consider SB12PAC25-4. There are not many reviews. Cheap. The parameters are also good. But plastic basket is ugly.

On HFreaquency I consider DAYTON ND25FA-4 and ND28F-6. I have not decided yet. Because of the cabinet, a tweeter with a flange diameter of 66-75mm is needed.
Rs125 aluminium cone drivers are excellent...

The notion that metal cone drivers sound metallic is utter nonsense. Rs125's are flat, neutral and balanced. Very low distortion, pure hifi. Small resonance at ~10k is no issue as its quite far up and easily removed. Plus they go quite deep for such a small driver. They can practically cover very large range, say 150 to 3000 hz, which is beneficial.
Highly recommended.

4" midwoofer for mini 2 way
I'm with Ed on this. I've been running one rs125-8 and one rs125p-8 to see which I like better, and I like them both.
Easy to work with.
