Default Tymphany's new +/- 45mm woofer

Soon to be released
Driver Detail | Tymphany

only +/-10.4 linear, but advertised +/-45mm "excursion"

Rather low sensitivity. Seems like a car woofer, but I wonder how it could do in a tapped horn?

I would rather use 2 of those:

Sound Ordnance M2-12DVC 12" subwoofer with dual 4-ohm voice coils at Crutchfield.com

Carbon copy of the german engineered Alpine SWG-1244.

10 mm xmax, 50 mm p-p.
89.5 db sensivity.
less than 150 g mms.
1.02 mH inductance.
low qts.

2 of those will have equal max. spl using 1/7 the power.
Also sq will be much better.

I have been waiting for this subwoofer for awhile. I hope Josh Ricci will be able to get one for testing! This should make a great small sealed home theater subwoofer.

I'm aware of only one coil configuration, dual 8 ohm. Is there more than one coil configuration?

if a car woofer this would be what I would choose, the Sundown Nightshade v.4

Those specs actually look pretty good. Xmax is slightly low for car audio use, but efficiency is pretty high. Have you actually had one of these drivers on hand for testing?
