Woofer for tiny closed box.
 
In the 1970's there were a number of really small closed box speakers; Goodman's Maxim, Realistic Minimus 7, Technics SB F1 spring to mind. I would like to have a go at making something similar.

Any suggestions for a woofer (4"?) for a 2-4 litre closed box?

I am currently doing a very similar project and the best woofer I have found so far is the Monacor SPH100C. It seems to work nicely in a 2.8l enclosure tuned to around 85hz

Not what I would call a "Tiny" box tho

For some reason, probably ease of filtering, these 4" sort of speakers often used 4 ohm woofers. So this one fits the bill for 4L: SB Acoustics SB12NRXF25-4 MidWoofer

But I would give serious consideration to this polycone for 2L or more too which might work on a simpler filter: Peerless 830870 HDS 106 PPB MidWoofer Speaker

These are both closed box drivers. This one is more reflex oriented: SB Acoustics :: 4? SB12NRX25-4

The Visaton Aria Light is an interesting small reflex design too. Easily enough available driver units.

Thank you for your suggestions. The Monacor SPH 100C and the SB 12 fit the bill very well. I agree with Moondog, but when I put "small" in the thread title, I saw an old thread that talked about small boxes of 30-40 litres and 10" drivers.

small speaker
 
I have a pair of Minimus 7's and had to replace the woofers. I found good quality cheap replacements from MCM Electronics . I don't recall the model number. Worth a look.

It might help to know what F3 you are looking for and what kind of SPL's you want at those frequencies. Also, do you intend to use a sub with them or will they be handling all the LF's?

I don't think anyone is expecting much bass from a 4L closed box. I hate to mention the "C" word here, but I've got to. CONE Tweeters were what made the Goodmans Maxim and Videoton good! :D

It's quite easy to import the Boxsim Projektdatenbank Aria Light into the projekte folder of Boxsim. The 8 ohm W 100 S - 8 Ohm works pretty well as a flattish 3.9L closed box or as a slightly boomy reflex.

Some change does the Visaton filter good though, IMO. :)

This looks quite reasonable with the TW 70 - 8 Ohm cone tweeter. I quite like that.

Oh, just as a bit of fun. Here's a 2 litre reflex Pure DMX-25 speaker I have which was part of a budget music centre. It's incredibly simple, just a coil on the woofer and a cap on the cone tweeter.

Really quite respectable sound in the budget bracket. It's got great midrange. :)
