Correct, MAD subwoofers use 12 - 18 " conventional drivers - dipole (I used to work for those MAD guys).

Here is a pic. of the largest push-pull magnetic-planar drivers (by FPS); subwoofers also use conventional woofers.

Hi,

I am thinking of putting together a full range ribbon design if it is possible. Tweeters like RAAL look pretty good but only go down to 1 khz or so - does anybody make a mid ribbon that goes down a bit further? To where it could be crossed with a sub? Ideally a ribbon woofer would be great but such a thing seems not to exist bar the full range apogees and the like. Does anything exist in pro audio?

Regards,

Nick.

Yes, see post 13. The large (264x364mm) FPS planar driver is good down to 200Hz.
