Hello, I'm considering upgrading my bose souddock series 1 drivers. I'm wondering if these would fit in the enclosure.
Unfortunately we do not have a cross reference available for this type of thing. You can pull up the spec sheets for these drivers on our website and compare dimensions for the Bose you have to see if they will be close or not.

Hi. From the description:Dimensions: Overall diameter 2.75" (3.35" diagonally ear-to-ear), Cutout diameter 2.42", Depth 2.15".You can see by the cutout diameter that it's a 2.5" diameter diaphragm.Hope this helps.

7 Watts Rms?
The 7rms power handling versus 60 watts max seems like a huge difference. Is this correct?
Power handling can be measured with a wide variety of methods, producing very different results depending upon exactly how the measurement is taken. 7 watts RMS sounds very reasonable for this kind of driver, however, the maximum power handling should always be taken with a grain of salt. While the driver may be fully capable of handling 60 watts under a very specific set of circumstances, I would not incorporate this driver into a design with 60 watts as a goal for normal operation. To state this in very broad and general terms, the RMS wattage is typically a sensible rating for normal use and design, where peak wattage is not nearly as useful from a pragmatic design standpoint. Actual peak power handling should normally be around twice the RMS, so perhaps 15 watts would be a more realistic peak figure for this driver.
