Default Help in identifying woofer

Hey folks.

I was wondering if anyone had an idea on who the manufacturer of this woofer is? Unfortunately the only markings are the numbers on the nderside of the cone; 70815 014.

I need to get the specs on it if at all possible, so any help is much appreciated.


Thanks

It's a 12". I don't know voice coil size or anything like that.

Thanks

I agree with DJK, looks like an OEM EV Force 12.

They were designed primarily as a musical instrument speaker, lots of built in harmonic distortion, and very little linear excursion.

Cool, thanks guys. Looks like I came to the right forum!

Specs look like it should be fine for a floor monitor. Hate to see a decent woofer go unused.

Thanks again.

Tyson,

I used some Force 10 for PA with a HF horn coming in around 1500 Hz, to get the vocals to sound clean had to cross the 10 in at 500Hz.

I'd suggest selling it to a guitar player that will appreciate the distortion the speaker is designed to make.

The info provided by Weltersys says that is made for sound reinforcement systems, and EV made a line of PA cabs with these woofers if my research is correct.....
