B&C 6PEV13 6-1/2" Midrange Speaker
Given the high efficiency, has anyone used this horn with a low power tube amplifier, 10-20W?
I've been looking at several drivers in the pro category for a monaural speaker setup for a 10-20W tube amplifier. Has anyone used this driver in that application? Given the high sensitivity and relatively low RMS power for this driver, it appears that this may be a good match for low power tube applications.
The 6PEV13 is an excellent high efficiency midrange driver. When I first purchased mine, I was struck by its exceptionally lifelike midrange sound.To answer your question - yes, it would be a good driver for a low power tube amp, but a high fs and low xmax prevent it from being useful below 350-400 hz. I recommend for best sound quality using it in a 3 way system with a woofer below 400hz and a tweeter above 5000hz. This is not a full range driver.
