Default Audio Nirvana 8" Metronome

Has anyone put an 8" Audio Nirvana standard driver in a Metronome? What were the dimensions?

Scott has provided this:

Use at own risk, given AN's questionable specs. This is based entirely on their published figures.

L = 70.5in
St = 6in x 6.25in
Sl = 12in x 12.5in
Zd = 35.25in
Vent = 5in diameter x 0.75in long.

Stock: Green, with high output impedance amp: Red

WOW! that's alot bigger than the wife will let me put in the house. Thanks for running the numbers for me. Guess i should look into selling or trading these drivers for something like the fostex fe126/127 size driver. Anyone interested?

Sorry, sold them in their BR boxes to a buddy, he's now hooked on the single full range driver concept, the next step for him is converting to vacuum tubes. I know commonsenseaudio.com has them for $128 a pair

I'm thinking seriously about the met for the AN Super 8". Would you think those same numbers might work?

Thanks in advance.

Let's enlarge 8% then:

L = 70.5in
St = 6.5in x 6.75in
Sl = 13in x 13.5in
Zd = 35.25in
Vent = 5in diameter x 0.75in long (the box is bigger so this will tune lower (i think)
Thanks Dave and Scott!
