Yes that type of coil is not suitable for crossovers.
Anyway the real problem to my understanding is that a small driver is asked to produce low frequencies as dipole.
Baffle step (or actually loss) compensation with a serial coil is 1st order lowpass by nature and it will attenuate mid and high frequency (sensitivity) When the driver is asked to put out "normal" spl fullrange , it is driver to extreme excursion in bass-low mid very easily.
This is main reason why dipole speakers must be at least 2-way with large bass driver(s)

Thanks perceval, for confirming that these inductors are in fact problematic.
And thanks Juhazi, for bringing up the issue of driver excursion.
The distortion I heard was very similar to voice coil rubbing.
I hope that this won't be the case with good inductors, especially since the drivers are 1 m away from me and I won't be listening at loud volumes.
These drivers were also used in OB using a similar crossover (10 ohm and 2mH, instead of 12 ohm and 3.3mH)

For 4 ohm drivers, I found that this 1st order low pass is 193 Hz for 3.3mH inductor and 318 Hz for 2mH inductor.
Maybe the high/mid attenuation is more due to the 12 ohm resistor instead of 10 ohm, but can it make such a difference to create excursion issues?
