That depends on what you listen to. If you like Bach on a huge organ, well, even sub 20Hz isn't going to be good enough. Most music bottoms out at about 30Hz.

To me the case is closed for now. I went for a pair of Fane Colossus 18XB. Partly because the seem to fit the requirements (specs ideally suited for a vented box, and the drivers can be used up to 200 Hz) and partly because they can be had for good price where I live.

Thanks to all that contributed so far!

Best regards
Peter

Hi Gisel,

I have received the drivers and they look great for sure, but I have not had a chance to try them out yet, because I am still waiting for the cabs

Best regards
Peter

good luck

strangely Im close to deciding for the PD.186

after long time stubbern search, it seems like I have to bite the dust and build a vented box
closed box with pro drivers simply seems too impossible to get low enough

seems like -6db at 30hz is the limit, and just about possible with vented, and still have smooth roll off
but seems like it doesnt take much spec changes before it goes up

Well, I am sure they are all good woofers! One of the considerations for me was cost, and the Fane's were the cheapest from where I live.

Best regards

hey bjorn, what is it ? a tapped horn ?

PD.186 might not be ideal to cross very high, but I would sure like to cross a bit higher than 80hz

this thread is about a subwoofer, I know
but Im more into 'ordinary' 3ways
4ways ? Im not quite there yet
