Hi,

Only if it has a suspension that does twice the excursion
of the main driver will it be really up to the job asked.

Which rules out using a cheapo driver as a PR, though
you can use a mass loaded cheapo driver as a PR
as long as its much bigger than the main driver.

rgds, sreten.

Use two cheap drivers per woofer, remove the magnet structure and paint the back of the cones with a few layers of wood glue. That's a starting point.
