I agree with Zuki. Although there aren't any distortion tests available of the driver you linked, a while back Zaph mentioned a test of a Skaaning 12" woofer, as compared to a popular 12" in the (i think) $150 range. The Skaaning definitely had better performance, but it cost something like $750. This was in his blog, so it should be taken with a huge grain of salt- but I take it as all the proof I need that Skaaning isn't garbage. (my burden of proof is quite small, since I'll never pay that much for drivers)

A scan speak revelator costs less, and should provide excellent performance. Likewise, the Seas Excel drivers offer a metal cone solution that's in the same arena of performance, and the Peerless Exclusive drivers offer a non-metal driver that will compete.

How much are you willing to spend? Is this for a tiny 2-way, or as a mid in a three-way? Do you have a tweeter in mind?

this was for a car/truck and since car environment is not optimum, at 50 mph, i thought there might be a driver which could occupy a ib application and act as the mid/woof of a two way set up with maybe a linaeeum tweet on top.

thank you

not sure what budget is, but 350 x 2 plus s/h for car door speaks makes me ask , if someone else may have stumbled onto a 80 or 90%er of this woof for le$$ .

AT driver with a Lineaum tweet? That's a new one ... and in a car none-the-less!

If you want IB, presumably door mounted, just look for a driver with a high Q from a quality manufacturer. The Ascendant 6.5" driver was a perfect fit for that application, if it ever becomes available again.

And me personally, I'd totally ditch the idea of using that tweet in a car. It would be a nightmare to install, and limited off-axis is just what you don't want for a car tweeter.

Hi,

Nothing does at treble frequencies except a perfect pulsating sphere.

All you need is a decent flush mounting miniature tweeter.
