Attractive price. This Dayton or Aurum Cantus 250. Or something opposite - Eminence LEGEND BP122.

The DSA315 is virtually resonance-free up to nearly 4 kHz, which is not bad for a 12" woofer. Then is starts to ring (an aluminum cone) but that should be high enough to be filtered out sufficiently - I hope.
- This is one of the many woofers I have lying around here. It may still end up in some direct radiating three-way.

I'm interested in short tappered TL for such drivers - like Sanders and Jazzman use.

Some of those bass guitar woofers are usuable, especially if these are designed to reproduce a clean tone (without breakup overtones/coloration).

This is one of my favorites. It's basically a slightly modified Sica 10 2.5 PL.

Oh, I'm already cured from that ... :)

Switched to...? :)
At home I use ESL57 - so high Q at 100Hz. Must say I like it.

Did you mount it in a cab/baffle to get an impression of the sound signature?
Thick rubber rol surround + metal cone may lack midrange snappiness and 'paper' warmth.
I have to admit, the plots look promising and the motor structure appears to be properly engineered.

A midrange snappiness and 'paper' warmth? Now you've lost me. Do you mean it will sound more neutral? I don't know but I'd rather not discuss a sound of different cone materials here. I don't have much to add anyway.

Ro808 18th October 2019 06:47 AM

;) This surely isn't the place to discuss these aspects.
Let me finish by stating I'd rather not use rubber roll surrounds, especially in the midrange.

Ah Yes, I forgot about those ;)
Which crossover was used between the DE360 and the (I suppose) 6 or 8" woofer? The 3-way with ring- and mid-dome is another project?

1,2kHz (Behringer). Same project that replaced STH waveguide with DE360.
