Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply AmazingOne of the best I've tested in a long time. I will be using this driver exclusively moving forward. Never harsh - very accurate and clean sound. Don't hesitate!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What do you expect - it's the standardIt's well made, sounds great. I can't complain. I guess that's why it has become the standard. I have it crossed over around 850 hz to a JBL 2226h

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Detailed and DurableI was pleasantly surprised by this driver. It has the durability of a Titanium driver with more of the detail of a Mylar CD. The output is tremendous but the detail is retained. The B&C Mylar DE10 is more delicate but does not have the power handling of this unit. This is a workhorse. We use it in our premium line array cabinets; HiFi sound at PA volumes. Just keep the crossover above 3.5KHz or this thing will take your head off.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible HighsThis is one of the best drivers for over 1Khz. use ever made. It's the best I've ever heard and is a steal at this price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well Worth The PriceI used them with the pn# 294-620 horns and 3500hz crossover in my 3 way, 1 x 6 x 18" DIY prosound monitors.There was no "break in period". They were perfect from the moment I installed them. I just set their levels to match woofer and mid with a pn# 260-262 L-Pad, sat back and enjoyed!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hifi sound on steroidsI find this driver very easy to work with. It has a smooth extended response and is capable of a low crossover point. Coupled to a decent waveguide it has a very clean, neutral and articulate sound. Put simply, "hifi sound on steroids." This is the compression driver that Earl Geddes found to be comparable to a cost-no-object Tad. My only complaints are related to it's construction. Firstly, the exit tube lacks a smooth profile - it has a series of small concentric lips. Secondly, the foam could be better lined up with the exit.
