Default Hemp Acoustics 8" Full Range Drivers $130 (Pair)

For sale is a pair of Hemp Acoustics 8" Full Range Drivers. These are the classic hemp cone based drivers with whizzer cone and cloth surrounds. There's quite a bit of info on them online and they work well in a variety of enclosures.

I had them in my Oris 150 horns and they sounded nice with lots of body to vocals and fantastic imaging. They only have about 25 hours on them, so they need to be broken in correctly, so are essentially new. I drove them with a 2.5 watt 2A3 amp.

I'm going to be selling the Oris 150 horns with Avant Garde 225 subs as well for local pickup in the Phoenix AZ area (they will come with Dayton full range drivers).

Shipping of the drivers will be via USPS and shipping weight should be around 14 lbs boxed and will ship from 85087. Paypal, money order or personal check (shipped once it clears) is accepted. As a side note, shipping internationally will unfortunately only be available via US post office and I'll need to get pricing from them once packaged so it will take a few extra days to finalize everything, but I understand that's pretty standard.

Here you go....The hemps have a lovely tone and sound great in a 75L bass reflex enclosure.

Never mind, once I found the proper name for them, Hemp Acoustics FR8C, it turned up info. Thanx.

Thanx Chlorofille, I wonder what the response would be in a back loaded horn? The QTS seems a bit high for that, though.

A guy here did a BLH for them (and the Visaton B200, he claimed), but you had to pay for the design. Vadim, maybe? Ask E-speakers.

You might want to stroll over to the Wild Burro forum, as a couple of people have proposed BLHs for my speakers (the BetsyK).

If you've got the room, go with the simplest blh: the BIB. Either way, you should buy them from Dilmonkey. You'll like them.

Dilmonkey: what do you want for the horns?

Thanx Paul, I already made, (NEVER again , and own a pair of Lowther Fidelio BLH cabinets. In the back of my head I think about using them again but should probably put them up for sale.
