from The little speaker that can"tI wanted to like this driver, I really did. Solid spec's, paper cone, and good price point. The problem with buying an untried speaker is you never know what your gonna find. This driver will make somebody a great midrange. It has lots of "snap", and is very clean between 300 hz and 3k hz. That being said, 400 cu in ported to 80 hz in an mtm center chanel application coupled to a HiVi tn25 xovered at 3500 hz @12 db. Nothing below 150hz. Dead. I even pulled them back out and made sure I didn't do something amaturish with the polarity. Tried sealed, changed ports, a healthy adjustment on the eq will put the bass into them, but they stop sounding clean. I hope they break in and start sounding a little warmer. I'll post back up if they do.
