Roushon,

I'm just buried at work. I'll get you a price tomorrow, I promise. It will be around $60-65 USD, I think. They aren't rated for many watts, but they are very efficient. So, a couple of watts will get you where you need to go. Some reserve is always good, but generally, single drivers aren't for head banging.

Default thanks

Thanks Paul for the information. I expected that the shipping to india will be pretty high.
I know you are busy and may be the answer to my question is somewhere in this forum, but
in case you do not mind, do I need to make the second OB the mirror image of the first OB
(in the project in your webpage) for stereo application. You can reply just by Yes or No.

Regards
Roushon

I just sent you a shipping quote. I do make the OB's mirror image (as I do most every audio piece I can). I highly suggest that the baffles always mirror each other, but I suspect it would not be the end of the world if they didn't.

Default Size of Betsy

Sorry, but I can't find the size of Betsy (diameter). I like to use in a portable PA speaker, battery operated, not really concerned about fidelity, but I like the high efficiency.

The Betsy and BetsyK are both 8" speakers. Assuming you are using a sealed box (probably the best choice for your application), they BetsyK at 94.5db 1w/1m is the driver for you. Some 6"ers are as sensitive, but they won't have as much dynamic range (combination of lower area and lower Xmax). You can run the Pioneer BOFU harder, but it isn't as sensitive.
