Aurum Cantus AC200/50C2C 8" Woofer

An evolution of the AC Series, the Aurum Cantus AC200/50C2C 8" woofer uses high motor strength and low power compression to great effect. The tailored response of the speaker's exotic yet supremely engineered non-woven carbon fiber sandwich cone delivers the signature Aurum Cantus combination of depth, accuracy, and listenability. A copper-plated flat aluminum wire voice coil provides high efficiency and excellent power handling, complemented by a low-distortion magnet system and precisely cast aluminum alloy basket. Aurum Cantus woofers are characterized by fast transient response, minimal tonal coloration, and deep, dynamic bass.

Aurum Cantus AC200/50C2C 8" Woofer

I currently own a pair of Allison AL130 speakers. They have a push/pull woofer configuration . Can I use this woofer as replacements

Is it reasonable to pair this woofer with Dayton PT2 planar tweeter? I would use box parameters listed below. What would be the best crossover to use?

Asked by: Tunessmith
With a carefully-designed custom crossover network, you should be able to integrate both drivers with little difficulty. I would recommend a minimum of a third-order filter on the PT2 at about 2500 Hz. However, there is a rise in the response of this woofer that probably would not be adequately corrected by an off-the-shelf crossover to ensure a good transition to the tweeter, and it would manifest itself as a harsh tonal character.

Would these woofers do OK in a 2way setup with the AC G1 ribbon tweeter crossed over at 2k Hz?

Asked by: BifPib
Yes these will work well together with that crossover point.

Will two of these work in one sealed enclosure with a volume of 0.73 Cu. Ft.?

The interior dimensions of the enclosure are 22.75" H x 8" W x 7" D, or 0.73 Cu. Ft. This is actually a sealed enclosure within a much larger ported enclosure (see picture). The current setup has all JBL Pro Drivers and the none of them are appropriate for the tuning of the enclosures. Being a novice, I wanted to find out if two of these 8" Aurum Cantus woofer drivers are appropriate for this sized enclosure.I will also be replacing the 15" JBL's with something else. Any suggestions would be welcome. The net volume in the main, ported enclosures is about 13.4 Cu. Ft. - Int. Dim. 66.5" H x 16.5" W x 22.5" D less ext. dim. 23.25" H x 9" W x 7.5" D.
Asked by: Dude who needs help
That is a reasonbly acceptable size for two, a little on the small side but still usable. Qtc of .972, F3 of 80Hz.Cannot suggest something for the larger enclosure without knowing tuning frequency or port size/length.

Best box for full low extension?

Nice response curve.
Asked by: 2tune
I would run it in a 1.5 to 2 cubic foot vented enclosure tuned to 35hz which gives you an f3 of 42 and 37 hz respectively. A 4" diameter port or two 2.5" diameter ports are needed to keep port velocity low enough.4" diameter port:1.5 cuft, 35hz = 15" long2 cuft, 35hz = 10" longtwo 2.5" diameter ports:1.5 cuft, 35hz = 12" long2 cuft, 35hz = 9" longOr if a sealed enclosure is desired 0.5 to 1.0 cubic feet which give you an f3 of about 70hz with the larger enclosure having a more shallow rolloff below that.

Does it have a progressive spider?

I intend to use them in vented enclosures. Also, how many are in the package?
It is difficult to tell by the picture. most likely the spider is linear because it was not stated, usually progressive spiders are used in auto sound systems to limit the excursions when the voice coil travels out to the edge of the magnet assembly. because space is limited in auto applications and the speaker pistons must have long excursions for high spl this usually lifts the voice coil out of the magnetic gap thus limiting the damping factor from the amplifier. so with linear spiders the excursion is mostly controlled by the damping factor and progressive spiders get progressively stiff at the inner or outer limits.
