      They usually use letter designations at the end of the model number to specify slight differences in the T/S parameters or other spec's.

        IIRC the 8S is more of a woofer with a rubber surround and the 8M is a true midrange with accordion surround

          I've always wondered why rubber surrounds aren't used on all AE drivers !?

            I was the one who ordered those woofers. They wound up in Ed Rosenquist's cabinets teamed up with the Transducer Labs Magnesium domes in guides on Corian baffles.
            Rubber surrounds have resonance issues that are different than foam or accordion rolls.

            The surrounds on this OEM SEAS 7" midrange is one example of how to minimize edge resonance and diffraction from a protruding roll.
