  • Any full-range speaker projects using the Dayton Reference paper/kevlar woofers?

    I would like to know if anyone has made full-range speakers using the new(ish) line of Dayton Reference paper/kevlar woofers?

    RS225p-8a, RS150p-8a, and xt25

    Not finished. Sitting in the corner waiting on a sunny, and dry, weekend to primer/sand/paint. Then it's back to getting them dialed in. Yes, I'm slow.

    Can't tell you how the sound compares to the metal cone RS225-8 as I've never had a pair of those. But I will say, the bass is tight, tactile, and easy to pick out different lines (definition?) running through the lower registers. Picked the papers because I thought they might be easier to build a crossover for.

    The Khanspires, and Statements come to mind, but they use the older metal cone RS225-8.

            Hello

            By 'full range', do you mean 'doesn't need a sub', or that the driver is used full range? If the first, Curt Campbell's "Slapshots" which use two RS180Ps in an MTM design, are marvellous sounding speakers and provide excellent bass/mid for most of our collection, which includes jazz, pop/rock and classical. No heavy metal except Led Zep, Deep Purple and Bad News (look them up on Youtube, hilarious)

            We have a Polk sub, but unless the recording has really deep and powerful bass, such as the beginning of the famous Bach organ Toccata, we don't turn it on.

            I haven't heard the RS225Ps but if they share the same 'house' sound they will be excellent

            Good luck

            Geoff
