It looks shiny and is 4 Ohms nominal too, which is fantastic. The Lab12 was 8 Ohms which was making it quite hard to find an amp to give 500Watts @ 8Ohms.

Great I think I know what I will do then!

I can't find a lot on the Veravox but I'm not really bothered by efficiency as I said before. I will have 500watts RMS for the midrange lol! It just needs to sound good. I know efficiency is important to good sound but it is not the be all and end all.

The linear decay plots donít seem to be available for a lot of drivers.

Again, anybody got experience with the Dayton RSS315HF? How high can it be used?
Almost everything but C&W and RAP (..and sometimes a little from those as well like classic SugarHill or pop'esq or blues'esq C&W.)

Every once in while I just love to "crank-up" some AC/DC LIVE!.. and with a recording like that higher eff. drivers just seem to "come-to-life" more. (..and this goes along with that recent post on hifi drivers vs. pro drivers.)

yes this dayton driver looks spot on for what you are searching for . It's true that visaton drivers are generally a bit expensive, especiammy if you compare them to the daytons

Just on a side note : Tenson, do you realise what kind of SPL you are gonna obtain with 2 12" high excursion drivers ? More than you can handle, even with the visaton driver, even EQ'ed, except if you listen very far and have a very big room

What?! I canít hear you!!

About 112dB at 20Hz with room gain? Sounds about nice From 40-50Hz a second open baffle 12" will kick in but I will need to limit the closed driver to what the open baffle driver can do so they are playing at equal level. I'll get about 110-115dB in room over the entire audio range. They should be quite compact as well. Anyway it is not about playing super loud it is about not being stressed when playing normal loud.

Heya lads!

So, is there anywhere I can get the Dayton RSS315HF for a decent price? I am in England, so if I buy them from PartsExpress I pay about the same amount in postage as I did for the woofers!

Default volt bm220.8

the volt bm220.8 is a great match to the raal 140-15
I have used it with great results and its is very robust.
clean fast sound, double spider!

The Beyma Pro6MI would be loud, easy to x-over in the treble, maybe 6dB, not too expensive and has OB-suitable Qts.

Somebody here reported good success with the Veravox 7X plus raal in OB, but would be more expensive and I have never seen a power handling value.
