    Nope, not easy, but possible. I did use the um12s in three ways (Trinity build). Yes, very low sensitivity but man did they dig deep!

      One thing I would like to see is a quad coil woofer/sub with good T/S parameters to operate sealed. During development of the Indium 7, I read a fair amount about the Watkins woofer and would like to try the approach. With quad 2 ohm coils, one could wire to get a 6 ohm and 2 ohm signal path. The concept is that you run the woofer off of the higher impedance coil, but have the low impedance coil connected to a notch filter that only allows current through around the resonant frequency of the woofer.
      Keep an open mind, but don't let your brain fall out.

        Just because it is more linear, and may have more Xmax does not mean it will play lower. It does mean it will player louder though.

          Sounds v cool. I guess you've seen these, rather gorgeous (can almost forgive a stamped steel basket)https://www.parts-express.com/morel-...oofer--297-134

            Yep, seen those and used a version in a car audio install some time ago.

              Spill the beans .how do they sound? Guessing this new version is a lowered spec in some way (judging by price)

                I think we can all agree that PE should house-brand the Tang Band giant dome midrange. Bonus points if they sell it with an ovoid or rectangular frame so we can get the driver spacing closer.

                A midrange cone driver optimized for waveguides is also a solid idea. Someone stuffed a Fountek 2" unit in a horn, and the results were highly impressive, though the efficiency was still quite poor.

                I do recall that WmAx measured the midrange from the Infinity Primus 3-ways. ~90dB efficient, very reasonable distortion, and it was $12 or so when they'd still sell you one. I could see a knockoff driver being a phenomenal seller.

                Also, way at the top of the list are Sanwu amp modules, which perform quite well and are a bit hard to source because there's inferior knock-offs flying around. ALIexpress will sell me a TPA3116 mono module for $6; I'd gladly pay $9 just to guarantee I wasn't getting a dud.

                Perhaps from a measured performance standpoint, but their unit to unit consistency that I have seen is outstanding.

                I would like to see a cone tweeter come back - they are just cool looking.

                I've seen some complaints of consistency and frustration with really flimsy frames. A swap for a nice glass-filled plastic frame and some QC would likely mend it.

                Of course, there's also the RS line for a little bit more money.
