Default A 8 incher with a paper cone

I am looking for an 8 inch woofer/driver for a 2 way design. I stumbled onto the Audax HM210G0 years ago, used it for a 2 way design and was delighted with the sound. Today, sadly, the Audax is no longer available.
What I am looking for is something suitable for BR design (Qts < .4) and that can be crossed over at 2K or higher. I find that paper cones just sound better and any cone breakups at HF are easier to deal with, compared to the exotic materials of today. Did I say that price is an issue? Something under $150.00USD would be nice......Ideas??

The CA22RNX is a good woofer.

The peerless nomex is probably the best value.

For about ~1/2 the price of the Seas and Perless you have the studio edition Beyma 8BR40, 90dB with a copper voice coil and Le=0.7mH.

???

Beyma: Item Price: $65.99 New Low Price

....http://www.usspeaker.com/beyma%208BR40-1.htm

Peerless 8" HDS Nomex: $58.75

....http://www.madisound.com/catalog/pro...oducts_id=1614


For a little less than the price of the Beyma you could have the Peerless HDS Nomex woofer. Did I miss something? Is that price for the Beyma for TWO woofers???

But, the Beyma does indeed look more like the old classic 8" paper speaker woofer found in inexpensive but fun to listen to 2-way bookshelf speakers, like the ones I used to have from the late/mid 1970's that I loved so much myself.

Looks good for a small vented box
unibox = 91.7 dB/2.83V/m
should go past 40W given a big port

FYI this person sells a 2 way with this driver http://www.jupiter-audio.com/pages/europa.html

Don't take me wrong. Price in Spain (Europe) before taxes for Beyma is about 29,86 Euro (2009), and it was about 40,00 Euro (2006).
