Yes, these drivers would suit a Hildinghorn quite good, as You say a bit low fs but You could extend the dept of the cab one inch, other meassures intact, then it loads below fs decently well.

The drivers suffers thou from a ridiciously low sensitivity, 81dB! Thats not a usuable driver for anything but headphones, imo.

PE does have Faitail. You won't find the 3FE20 as it's the older discontinued model, now it's the 3FE22 with Neo-motor.

FaitalPRO 3FE22 3" Neodymium Professional Woofer 4 Ohm | 294-1100


EDIT - I linked to the 4ohm model, but there are also 8ohm and 16ohm too IIRC, all in stock.

Note that the 4FE35 with ferrite motor has lots more xmax. Something to consider.

DiyAudio, where old threads never die?

I read this thread long ago, and have always wanted to try this.

PE has released some new Dayton drivers.

One of them, the DMA80-8 looks like it might fit the parameters for a Hilding Horn...

Wondering if Ingvar Ahlberg is still checking in, and if he might share his thoughts on the applicability of the little booger...

Dayton Audio DMA80-8 3" Dual Magnet Aluminum Cone Full-Range Driver 8 Ohm
