Thank you Dave. That's easy to see now.

That link still doesn't work for me

Likewise. The specs are pretty good; you can squeeze a lot of sound out of these cheapies. They're not Monacor quality, still less Fostex, but they're still very enjoyable, and quite smooth. If budget can't stretch further, then they're a worthy choice.

Has anyone made any speakers with this driver yet ?

I have done a bit of modeling in winISD standard and will probably try 8.3 lt boxes with 188mm long 130x12mm vent.

The drivers have a shiny coating on the cone, but the frames seem quite thin. Thoughts on tweaks anyone. Should i try to strengthen them with epoxy putty, or just blutack type damping on the spider and gap between frame and magnet?

Thanks for taking the time to read this.

John.

I stuffed them into a pair of BIBs a couple of years ago -original TC version as I didn't have any T/S parameters at the time. They worked well enough. If I built them again I'd use a much shorter line though -about 95in or so. I used some trad. window putty on the spider, though they didn't ring much. Not hifi, but they're musical & good for cheapies. Their only problem is the Monacor SPH-60X, which doesn't cost much more and genuinely is hifi.
