Probably at least a couple of TangBands, but Mark Audio Pluvia7 would be at the top of my list.

CSS FR125 is near a decade old design… FR drivers has turned out to be a very competitive market, and many drivers have passed it by.

That's why I was asking about the latest comparable FR drivers. I don't need much past 15kHz because time has surpassed my youthful hearing range lol. I want them for nearfield listening.

Exactly how "near" you talking about, Steve? As Dave says, there are literally scores of small FR drivers from which to choose in this category - I have a couple of favorites, including members of the Fostex and MA stables.

Fostex FF85WK
Fostex FF105WK

MA CHR70 (now Gen3)
Alpair 5.2
Alpair 6P
Pluvia 7

Then there's the question of budget.

Add the Alpaie 10s to Chris’ list. All the others would be better near field.

Steve did say nearfield - the question remains, just how much so?

Someone mentioned TangBand. I got the W5-2143 (for me) and the W6-2144 for my sister. For the money I am really impressed with these little drivers.

Here is the W5-2143 in a box and the frequency response.

What FR drivers will go as low as the FR125?

The FR125 was limited by its abrupt stop when pushed to hard — full force right to the end — it made a very disturbing sound. In the end we decided not to use them in any BR enclosures. Hence sealed or aperiodic enclosures that do not go as low.

I haven’t directly compared to the FR125 but i do know the Pluvia 7 has really good LF potential.
