Bass(ish) driver for 1.5cf sealed box.
 
I have Wilson WATT 3 speakers on custom made stands. These stands are 24 x 16 x 11 and were made from one inch mdf. So they are pretty solid.

So Now I am thinking of making them into woofer towers. I have a good dedicated sub, so I am really only thinking of improving dynamics in the region 60Hz to 200Hz.

Since the width of the box will be 11 inches, I guess I would talking a 10 inch or under driver. And I would prefer sealed.

I have an active crossover (LR slopes) and plenty of amp power.

Any thoughts on a good bass(ish) driver? Initial thoughts were the SEAS 10" aluminium as used in the Wilson Sofia, or the Scanspeak 8545. I have also been recommended the Lambda 10 inch.

But I would welcome all thoughts and suggestions.

2 choices.

Scan Speak 25W/8565-01
Peerless CSX 257 H

hope this helps.

Possibly a little small for the Jordan JX150, but worth taking a look.

Good idea. Aperiodic enclosures are probably one of the last of the cut-n-try box methodologies now that decent modeling is available for quarterwave designs.

I have had some very good successes with aperiodic boxes.

also surprising how big a driver one can fit into a box.

i used a Pioneer 12" in a 1.3 cu. ft. box (per channel) using an aperiodic vent in my car.

Thanks for the tips. I've managed to find a source with Dynaudio 24W 100 drivers which appear to work well in small cabinets and can take plenty of power.

the 24W100 are very good in 1.5 cu. ft.

Used them in a 3 way with the d52af and d21af once in the 80s. love them.
