from Good Driver for a Small to Medium Throw CabinetI use this driver in several different cabinet designs that I build for Pa.'s and DJ Systens as well as in permenant installs and have found them to be very efficent in small to medium sized rooms. I prefer to cross them at 2.5khz or higher and with their 2" voice coil,they seem to handle 100-plus watts with ease.Many people who have heard them have thought they were much more expensive drivers and commented on their clarity. They perform exceptionally well on a constant directivity horn lense.I will buy more in my future builds

from Waste of time and money!Although having a huge magnet,this tweeter is pretty much must that, a huge magnet. The speaker is very inefficient as compared to other horn compression drivers, thus very low volume and difficult to match the output of the woofer. The frequency response range is relatively narrow mostly in the 2K to 5K range.

from This driver is HUGE!!!This Goldwood is reaaly big(like 5.5" dia.) it has a beefy magnet and sounds pretty good. I put it on a 24" horn and it really projects well. I only had a problem with the polarity of the terminals I could'nt see the markings(getting old and blind). I used the Tech-Help questionare and Chris Frechette had an answer for me right away. I bought the replacement diaphragm for this and the Selenium 210TI. Thanks Chris and Parts Express!!
