Default had a fun idea for an array...

i probobly won't be doing this for some time now, but...

i am looking for some uber cheap 2" full range speakers...see, my mom has this 2 1/4 x 2 1/4 inch square acrylic tubing and i saw some and thought it might make a neat array if dampened properly...so, any uber cheap good 2" speakers i should know about?

THANKS!

PartsExpress had a very nice looking square frame, 2" driver with treated cloth roll surround, 1" voice coil, copper pole piece. These were going for a buck and a half each. I haven't seen them listed in quite some time. I bought only two thinking headphone motors at the time. I think they were Pioneer.

My local surplus electronics store had a few hundred 2 inchers but they sold out. I didn't get any.

Default define cheap

The Tangband 2x3 drivers are under $25.00

The HI-VI A2S 2" driver is nice and flat and so inefficent about $11.00
http://www.partsexpress.com/pe/showd...number=297-426

Here is an interesting idea how about a pair of line arrats sunk into the side wings of a listening chair such as a lazyboy. You could use relatively inefficent drivers that are fullrange and get great imaging. You could use Aura drivers or Tangband

Just a few 2" drivers to think about.

i am going to use those 2x3" ones for another project...a "dock" for my mini disc player...they are the perfect size and shape to keep it small...and i could just build a small amp for the back...




keep em coming!
