Default WTB: Vifa 4" (max) cone midrange, Melbourne, Australia.

Or possibly mid bass driver, but no bigger than 4" overall diameter.
Something like a Vifa M10MD-39-08 will be ideal.

Freq range required is approx: 300Hz - 4KHz.

After only 1 driver.

Does anyone have anything like this, or can at least direct me where I can find one, new (preferebly) or used?

Thanks.

Mmm, may even consider a 5 inch?? (125mm)

On a side note, where can you go and buy Vifa drivers these days within in Australia (Melbourne?), (besides speakerbits)

As far as I know Aussies always had Wes Components to buy from, but a recent look at their website shows that although the company is still there, it seems to have changed significantly.

I am in Melbourne and I bought a pair of Vifa P13WH-00 5" Woofers from Wagner Electronic Services (the retail division of WES Components) about six weeks ago. No abn needed.

I assume you mean the speakers and not Wagners service.

I haven't used them yet. I bought a pair about four years ago based on their reputation of arguably being one of the best mid-ranges available but never got round to using them.

I recently found an interesting design for a bipolar transmission line (the TLB) that uses a pair of these speakers in each box. This project is on the list of things to do but because these Vifa speakers are listed in a lot of places as being discontinued I thought I should get them whilst I could.

The original pair I bought are labelled as being Made in Denmark but the new pair are labelled Designed in Denmark. However they look identical and the TS parameters measure the same.

I have a spare 4 ohm vifa p11 (cant remember model #) in new cond You can have for $20 + freight.

It has a higher q than the 8 ohm but just means mid enclosurevolume may need to be a few litres bigger.

I use them from 300 to 3.2k between a hivi d10g(-3db 23hz!) to a hivi 1.3 ribbon. Sound great to me.

I bought 4 off a guy who bought a heap of them for open baffle line arrays and had some spare. I believe he bought them as excess stock from vifas distributor years ago, used one each in my L/C/R (centre has 2 hivi d5g instead of 1x d10g) and now have one spare. I dont have the data sheet anymore but the response curve was more or less identical to the 8 ohm.

Let me know
