Default 8 inch driver for Isobarik system with 12 drivers

Hi,

I would be very grateful if you could suggest some drivers for a project I am considering.

I am looking for the best possible driver to use in an Isobarik bass system consisting of 12 drivers in each speaker (6 visible).

I have considered making the system servo controlled but I fear that such a project is simply to complicated.

Thank you very much.

Best regards,

JoeN

Hmmmm....

"best possible" is somewhat nebulious.

also - what size cabinet volume?

sealed or a reflex design?

what sort of freq. response (passband) are you looking for? (is this a "sub"?)

what size driver?

Thank you for your answer.

It is a sub working from around 200hz and down.

I would prefer a closed cabinet but I am not religous at the matter.

As I mentioned in the original post I am looking for 8 inch drivers.

The cabinet will be from 70-100 liters (for all internal drivers to share) in total.

This should be in the subwoofer forum.. however,

for that small a volume (even with vas halved via isobarik loading), you'll likely want something with a low vas and high excursion (..considering effectivly 6 drivers per cabinet).

From least to most expensive:

Joe, I changed the title from "( inch" to "8 inch" and "12 driver" to "12 drivers" That will be easier to understand.

I like the potential value of the first one in Scott's post #4. It resembles the TB W740C but with a longer throw, lower Fs and cheaper.

I prob. should have added in the Tangband as well.. so here it is:

(note that another on the forum here has said that the MCM version is not as well made as the Tangband, and also has a similar fs to the Tangband - but obviously there is a substantial price % difference.)

There are prob. other low vas high excursion 8 inch drivers out there.. but I'm at somewhat of a loss for suggesting others.
