  • If anyone is interested in a relatively high sensitivity MTM on the cheap...

    Check out this little bugger, I'm kinda surprised nobody has mentioned it yet.

    That response had my jaw on the floor when I was measuring it. I'd like to see some designs based around this guy.

    Description says "cloth surround" but picture shows what seems to be a rubber surround!

      Picture looks like cloth to me. The price sure looks right.

        Not when you zoom in. The listed 1mm xmax is a concern if accurate.

          Cloth surround on these. Xmax was measured by us so it is accurate. High pass these and it won't matter, the idea is to use multiples.

            Nice, a cheap cheap 3-way could be made with these in an MTM, and maybe a Titan glitter woofer and a cheap neo tweeter like the BC25 or ND25
            Don't waste your money on a new set of speakers, you get more mileage from a cheap pair of sneakers. Next phase, new wave, dance craze, anyways it's still rock and roll to me!

              These could be a very nice MTM match with the ND25FW tweeters. I just finished a pair of MTM's using this waveguide tweeter and a pair of NLA Peerless buyout 6.5" woofers. These tweeters are a great performer at a low cost. Flat response and low distortion above 2500 Hz.

                I believe these guys are the manufacturer of this driver. Indian based company from the looks of it. Not sure what they were used in though. I'm guessing an MTM config considering the 16ohm load per driver. http://www.iwaispeakers.com

                  The surrounds almost look like a treated woven material

                          I have a crisp 20 dollar bill for anyone who will design a budget MTM with these.

                            Yeah. Hope that's a typo. Otherwise, these might still make good midrange drivers.

                              I wonder if PE/Matt can supply the impedance graph to model the XO (ex., ala PCD). They might be good for MTM surrounds as these woofers need some serious HP, maybe up at 200 hz.
