Eminence Spec sheet: Eminence Lab12Usable Frequency Range*** 25Hz-125Hz
I think 200 Hz would be OK for the Lab12, and distortion would be low in the upper range, probably less than 4% THD.Is it possible to use Eminence Lab12 up to 200Hz?
IF yes: are there any cons like higher distortion ....
If no: What is the maximum usable crossover point? Is there any other 12 inch pro speaker usable for HIFI for range 25-200Hz? (Maybe Beyma 12LX60V2 or others)
I have not heard the Beyma.Have you compared this numbers to other 12 inch woofers?
What do you think about the comment, that the big Dust cap causes resonances and becoause of it the speaker is usable only inrange as it is declared in the datasheet(up to 125Hz)?
I have heard that a Beyma 12LX60V2 in 90-100l box tuned to 30Hz and then corrected with active crossover is better choice! Any comments?
What was the crossover slope used?Few days ago I have compared 12lx60v2 in 80l box tuned to 30Hz and 15p1000fe in 150l box tuned to 30Hz. Compared to the lab12 they had subjectively less and not as deep bass as lab12 howevermore precise. Maybe it was not correct baffle step compensation. Noth of them were crossed at 250Hz. The 15 inch woofer has Le=2. It is jigher than Lab12 has, and it is used up to 250Hz. Is it ok? The owner said that the woofer has les tha 1%THD up to this range. It is much more less than LAB12 measurements. Can it be true?
