Default Advice on a small mid-woofer.

I want to build a very small seaker for my desk. I have in stock a pair of SS 9800 Alu tweeters and I search for a pair of 4" mid-woofers.
My choice (for the moment) are :
Seas L12RCY
Seas Excel W12CY
Eton 4-300.

The box will not be more than 5 liters and I want to use a driver with a stiff cone.
The 2 Seas are interesting but of very low sensitivity (85 dB). Eton is little better (around 88 dB).
If anyone has some experience with these drivers, advices are welcome.

not exactly what you are looking for but this may be of some interest:

Also the Morel MW114 works well in VERY small boxes.

Thank you. I have missed this one. For the Morel, I prefer to avoid PP cone this time and give a try to stiff cones.

I built a system using the Seas L12RCY: HATT-MkIII and one using the W12CY:HATT-SE
The Excel woofer is very good but the standard L12RCY performs nearly as well at a fraction of the price.

Thank you tony. It is what I was thinking after viewing your projects with 4" mid-woofer.
I think that I will try the Seas L12RCY. I hope it will be a great match with my SS 9800 tweeters.

It should make a nice match with the Scanspeak tweeter.

I use the Seas W12 in a small 2 way with a Scan Speak 9300. The sound is very good. The bass is quite allright for me as I don't listen very loud generally. I was inspired in parts by Geenius web site (great site Tony). I did a parallel filter on that one and kind of upgraded the enclosure. Maybe I will try the recommended serie filter soon (the 9300 looks similar to the Seas 27 Tafc/g in FR, imp and parameters.)

Anyway, careful with the resonances of metal cone. This can be really anoying.
