from exceptional midrangeThis is an excellent model for your portable applications. It is very similar to the alpha 6 that uses ferrite magnets, so most of the positive reviews there should apply here. To summarize those reviews, this model screams from 100 Hz and up in a vented enclosure. What I will add is that the bass response below 100 Hz drops sharply and those familiar with home audio or studio monitor mid-woofers will either be disappointed or need to carefully design a system to extend the bass to 80 Hz. You can use a big enclosure and equalizer to push it to 70-80 Hz flat, but the wattage will need to be kept below 12-24 watts to avoid damage. The x-damage rating is just a hair above the xmax so it will blow easily. This woofer shines above 100 Hz with a sharp filter placed will result in powerful PA, monitor, or home system. In this case, it could be used in an enclosure as small as 4-5 liters when paired with equalization to boost the lower frequencies relative to the mids (the max acoustic power is 112 db at 100 Hz with a 4 liter enclosure, giving a lot of wiggle room for equalization).
