What's your intended use and what will be used along side with it?

If you don't have an application in mind, why buy them?

A large vented box is the most common alignment for a woofer like that. I'd recommend an EBS alignment, and possibly a highpass filter beneath tuning.

I think those would work well in a front loaded horn like Altec A7. How cheap?

I've not built this design myself, but am keen to in the next few months....

Basszilla

There are lots of DIY versions of this floating around on the web. You could do something similare with a mid-range fostex fullrange driver.....

60 pounds is a great price for a pair. I wish I could buy 4 at that price.
