What kind of power handling are we talking about here? Even with only 3 watts this is getting into the 2mm Xmax range on a driver only rated for 0.5mm.

Most drivers have a rising rate suspension, so Xmech [Xlim] can be considerably more than its Xmax, though no clue about much this one will 'stretch' before it takes high power to actually drive it to bottoming out. VCs use to overheat first, but the high temp glues available today may allow them to handle 2-3x their rated power before popping. Only one way to know for sure.........

Heh so true, keep a close eye while turning it up. Wife thought I was nuts when asking her to measure the displacement while I depressed the cone to measure unspecified Xlim. Was happy it was at least double Xmax (6mm), gets her involved with the process


Yes could have made a jig, but why miss out on all the family fun

I am soooo sure she likes to be involved!

I've been fortunate in that I've never had any of the SAF/WAF issues others have/had to endure and all helped me when asked regardless of the project, with only one setting any conditions. She made it plain from the get-go that she'd help with anything that didn't put her meticulously maintained nails in harm's way.

Indeed, I relied heavily on their generally keener hearing to 'voice' driver tweaks and finished speakers and I assume why the speakers I built for others were so well received by their 'better halfs'.
