by displacement, do you mean "one-way cone excursion"?

cone excursion is frequency and power (voltage) dependent. I know the power will be 15watts, but at what frequency would you like for me to check the excursion?

There you go. 15W might not be a problem after all.

I highly suggest HornResponse modeling program so you can see cone excursion. It's a great program.

First of all, thanks for all the replies, its much appriciated!

Nobody told me I should get that woofer, but is the one i modeled in winisd that did best in a "small" vented cabinet. rest of the resonably priced high sensitivity bass drivers i modeled needed a bigger enclosure than is possible for me to do. driver, bracing and vents deducted i have 90L left.

with 15Watts im almost out of excursion, LOL not even close, only using 1,5mm....

im open to other driver suggestions that will fitt my needs!

best regards

panduro

Hmmm......

A £175 1.5kW driver driven by 15w ?

The Fane Sovereign Pro 400 has similar specs, lot cheaper, less xmax.

rgds, sreten.

Hi sreten,
yhanks for your answer.

1,5kw, isnt it 0,8kw?

I cannot find a sovereign pro 400 on the fane website, can find a sovereign pro 15-500 ,sovereign 15-400 and a 15-400lf. is it one of those?

The pro 15-500, sov.15-400 and the sov 15-400lf all need at bigger enclosure than i have room for.

HMMM Bummer, i just entered the thiell and small parametres of the 15xb found on fanes website into winisd. the one thats pre-entered into winisd is apparently is a different(older maybe) model than the current as the specs are different.

with the current 15xb it doesnt give me the freq. response im looking for , it needs a bigger box than the older.

any other suggestions for a pro driver that will do well in a 90L cab with 15W/8ohm power?

It might be worth simming with a Fane Sovereign Pro 15-600 LF or the Fane Sovereign 400 LF.
The 15XB does seem like a bit of overkill for 15W I have run these up to 1.2KW per driver.
Usually the XB is tuned higher to allow decent power handing without excessive excursion.
Bit concerned about the size of the cabinet and the low tuning - the ports will be either very long or very small. A few litres more might make a difference especially with the cheaper drivers.
