the prices may be wrong by a few pence here and there, but look at : http://www.maplin.co.uk/Search/Resul...e=Loudspeakers for the full story. It is takes a bit of X referencing to work out which is which in the catalogue, which is why i made the list above. The HP170F0 woofer is NOT reduced BTW.

What do you guys think of the AP210M0?

Do you think that 2 of them in one enclosure would work as a semi decent sub for my PC.

How about a 3 way with AP100Z0 and a TM025F1.

Or would I be better off selecting one of the other Audax 8 inchers?

Later
Mark

Do a search for AP210M0.

In the either the Loud Budget Monitor (UK) or the AP100Z0 thread, I did some comparisons between Audax 8 inch units. Conclusion: AP210M0 isn't up to much.

maybe you could summarise those findings for us in this thread RB?

In terms of absolute bass extension the M0 looks bad, it's Fo is at least 15 Hz higher than the G6 or Z0.

However, looking at the data sheets the M0 seems to have at least some parameters on its side:

It has about 1/2 the moving mass of the G6 and Z0
it has +/- 1mm extra excursion
the VAS is a lot lower, which i'm guessing allows a smaller cab -> higher WAF.


on the negative side:
Qts is 0.72, pointing towards sealed and the magnet looks to be a lot smaller.

I have 2 G6's and 2 Z0's for comparision, not sure if there's any value in getting 2 of the M0's as well the see what all these parameters mean in listening terms! any thoughts?

I'm not sure about the M0 response curve though, the impeadance peak of resonance seems to be at 150 Hz, not the 47 Hz quoted!

Kram, if you do want to go for one of the two cheeper eight inchers go for the G6 variant over the M0 any day, as these have coated paper cones and a rubber surround in place of the M0's un treated paper cone and foam suround (if you can get down to your local shop and ask them to see the two you will clearly see the difference).

also, if you are going to use any of these with the AP100Z0's, then I would keep an eye on the sensitivities of all of your drivers, as the bigger ones have a fair bit more sensitivity to them compared to the four inchers (you could try using only one eight, with two fours and a single tweeter to help ballence things out a bit, but you would still probably end up needing to balance things out somewhere else).
