Question Can you recommend a driver for small passive BR

I'm hoping to supplement a small line array and I'm looking ideally for an 8" driver that can be used in a compact < 25L ported enclosure.

It will be part of the same speaker so used passively. All I've managed to find is a 6.5" Vifa that may be suitable.

Any easily available to the UK would be proffered. I may consider an isobarik arrangement to reduce size but driver cost must be lower as I'd need 4!

Appreciate your help.

Hi smallangryboy,
What to look for. Does dB's plays an important role in your design?
The Vifa P17WJ-00-08 is good. It plays VB = 20.3 L, FB = 33.7 Hz, 84.8 dB/2.83V/m, F3 = 49Hz

In answer to your question, it's in a modest room, semi detached house, approx 3m x 5m x 3m so not ear shattering levels by any means.

Hi,
I don't mean that, but don't you have to match the dB's to your passive system?

Sure, you'd have to attenuate the tweeter/array with a crossover to match.
