Visaton W300-8 12" Woofer 8 Ohm
Can the Visaton W300-8 12" Woofer 8 Ohm be used for electronic drums?
I want to build speaker cabs to play my electronic drum set through and was wondering if this speaker would be a good choice for especially KICK drum sounds, or which speaker would be good?-Also, going to be using it with a tweeter and wondering what would be a good match. Thanks.-Shawn
This woofer would work well for an application like this at moderate volume levels. I would recommend the smallest vented design for the higher tuning frequency.

will this woofer work in a 2.0 ft3 sealed cab?
Yes this will work in a 2 cubic foot sealed cab.

Does this Move more air because Larger XMAX? than Goldwood 12" inch delmar
12" goldwood heavy duty vs This woofer for moving Air14mm xmax vs 5mmhttp://www.parts-express.com/pe/showdetl.cfm?partnumber=290-332
The Xmax is only .25mm higher on the Visaton woofer so there will be no significant difference in output, assuming these are both used in their optimal enclosures. The woofer to choose is the woofer best suited to your needs.

What size box would this need if you used it & the Goldwood 8" heavy duty woofer in the same box?
If you Desire both on the same plane, I think about 13.5 wide x 23 high x 8 deep, around 1.5 cu. Ft. You could. Decrease to .75 cu. Ft. To 1.0 cu. Ft. If you use a different configuration.

What is the Xmax spec?
This is an advanced question:Isn't the Xmax spec the maximum linear travel (voice coil length minus the gap height) / 2 ?Shouldn't the Xmax be listed as 5.25mm and not 14mm, the mechanical limit of travel ?
There exist many different theories about the xmax spec. Some simply divide the voice coil length by 2 and accept that. Others consider linear vs. Non-linear responce while others apply a percentage of change in linear responce. Various speaker manufacturers list limits to the spec. Car audio goes for overall gain or volume and the most throw they can produce.My personal theory is to design with a goal of performance and balance specs, cost and result. Some cabs I want reference quality while others I am after an impressive sound for the drunks in bars. All things considered your box can do as much in performance as a speakers specs.Some cones move more air than others with the same xmax. Sound is moving air. Use specs as a guide, just as intended. A manufacturer has no idea what the box their product will go into. This makes the other theil parameters more important.

Xmax or Excursion Limit ?
Does Visaton say the Xmax value the same as the excursion limit ?
Not that I can find, so go with the xmax figure of 14mm.
