Well, that's an understatement, isn't it?

The 654 has a better response curve at the high end. I'm rapidly zeroing in on this for use in a line array unless someone can talk me into a better driver. Please try.

JoeBob, (or anyone else who has used these)

I am in the process of putting together a pair of these together.(full-range; no tweeter)
Did you use any XO? I heard the high frequency response is somewhat subdued, so is no LP filter necessary?
My girlfriend's sub is bigger than mine...

Nope, no XO here. As for the highs, they are a little subdued, but it's not noticable unless it's compared side by side with another loudspeaker (in my opinion). I used absolutely no filter, which was part of the apeal with these units, small cheap, no xover, just a driver in a box and it looked nice on paper. In the end I was really happy for the price and my friend who also built a pair (so I could get the price break from nuera) was also very pleased.

seangoesbonk I hope yours turn out nice, I'm actually going to get more of them, for my friend wants a good but cheap 5.1 system, and these are just the ticket for good but cheap.

"As I recall all the W4s are pretty simmilar. If you do go off and try your array I'm sure that driver will be a good pick. I can't stress how suprised I was, it wasn't up to the quality of my vifas, but for the price they are downright amaizing."

Is this the "comparison"?
