B&C 8MDN51-16 8" Professional Neodymium Woofer 16 Ohm
B&C 8MDN51-16 8" Professional Neodymium Woofer 16 Ohm is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb, this is what QSC uses in the ISIS seriesI learned about this driver from QSC when I bought a pair of their ISIS 8" 2way speakers. I was astounded at the beautiful flat-response, nearly perfectly flat from 60 to 20kHz. Digital piano and orchestral sounds are amazing.Later, I upgraded to the 828H ("H" for High-powered). That's when I realized that these drivers do all the heavy lifting up to 4kHz. Amazing projection! And when combined in a vertical array the dispersion is excellent. Stereo imaging in the configuration is w-i-d-e, over 60 degrees with very little drop-off.These are lightweight, so in conjunction with a well-designed cabinet they are easy to move and set up. Now that I see what they cost, the price for QSC speakers seems much more reasonable.They are durable too! I have used these daily for over six years now and they still sound fantastic despite being abused, transported, kept in a cold / hot van.
