If you seek Eminence 15" then I would look at these;

Delta 15LF
Kappa 15LF
Magnum 15LF
Kilomax 15

Download WinISD beta (or pro) and you can model these
in a ported box, just don't take my word - hehe

Unless I errored, WinISD says (default)
Delta 15LF - 21.7 cubic foot box @28hz
Kappa Pro 15LF - 4.6 cubic foot box @ 41hz
Magnum 15LF - 8 cubic foot box @ 33hz
Killomax 15 - 4.8 cubic foot box @ 42hz

The Delta and Kappa have 4.8 and 5.5 mm x-max
respectively.

The last two have 7.9mm x-max.

The Magnum seems to look good for 8 - 10 cubic
foot box tuned to around 32-33hz and the higher
x-max is always welcome. WinISD seems to think
a 6" diameter port x 2.9" long is needed to reduce port noise.
Plus these drivers have good sensitivity.
Check partsexpress.com for pricing on all Eminence.

If not Eminence, then look at the popular Tempest
from Adire Audio. 9 cubic foot box tuned to ~20hz.
16mm x-max, but lower sensitivity.

Hi,

Did you try RCF? Very serious french speakers, used the L15/554K in my bass stack.
Great, tight, bass and lots of it!

Regards,

Jarno.

what about the 2235 from JBL ofcourse. it is expensive but I have had great expereince with the big brother (2245).

I have used Eminece 8" woofers and 10" woofers. They are not bad. a bit limited in Xmax compared to better brands but I guess they are good for the money. the cones of teh drivers I have sued a ribbed doped paper cones. Cant remember the model numbers.

Hello,

RCF is Italian manufacturer.
They produce speakers of high quality.
At least PA types.

Consider RCF L15 P200 AK.
It is an excellent PA 15'' speaker.
It comes in 4 and 8 Ohm impedance.

1W/1m.........95 dB
Xmax............+/- 8.5 mm
Fs.................38 Hz
P..................700 W RMS



Best regards,
Kristijan Kljucaric
