Visaton W300S-8 12" Woofer with Treated Paper Cone 8 Ohm
what is the magnet weight?
Visaton does not publish a magnet weight for this driver. Usually you can estimate about 80% of the drivers total weight as the magnet structure. Magnet weight really has nothing to do with judging a speakers performance anymore.

Could this woofer be used in a sealed cabinet similar to the W300?
I am not familiar with the W300 although this woofer requires a sealed cabinet of exactly 2 cubic feet.

Sound Quality,Audiophile worthy?
I am considering using these in a two way system. Basically I am going to build what I would call miniature towers, because they will only stand about 3 feet in height and be wide enough to accommodate a single 10"" or 12"" woofer; I have not decided woofer size yet. The midrange will be fixed on top, something similar to a Bowers & Wilkins. I was mainly drawn to this woofer because it is on clearance, but I would like some feedback from anyone with direct experience with this woofer. Please refrain from responding if you do not own these or have never heard them personally. I am not interested in theory based assumptions as I can draw those for myself based of the specs sheet and the given parameters. My overall goal for this build is to achieve audiophile reproduction, so any suggestions for woofers capable of 35 Hz or lower, and are in the 120-150 RMS power range are welcomed; again recommendations with direct experience only please. I have also listed two other drivers that I am considering, the Morel 9"" cast frame and the ESS 12"" cast frame. Feedback related to these selections is welcomed as well.Thanks in advance...
ABSOLUTLY THE FUN THUNG ABOUT BUILDING SPEAKERS IS YOU TRY THEM AND THEY WORK GREAT, AND SOMETIMES NOT. DON'T GET UPSET THAT YOU BOUGHT THEM, BECAUSE BELEIVE ME YOU FIND THE RIGHT FIT. JUST GO WITH YOUR GUT FEELING, BUT ALWAYS READ THE DETAILS ABOUT THE ITEM AND I EVEN CHECK THE REVEIWS............
