    Augerpro measured the HO version. Exceptional performance through the mid range.

      FYI, here's the spec sheet for the Wavecor

        80L tuned to 40Hz using a 4" diameter, 4.5" long port, gives F3 at 40Hz, capable of hitting 115dB from 36Hz on up.

        Can you imagine a pair of them in the room? HOLY @H!z][

        Really unlimited dynamics with your 1000W amp, as long as you're not pushing stuff below about 32Hz. If you want a woofer to keep up with that snappy 6600, this is it.

        I want to use that big 10" WG and a 91dB tweeter, with that woofer, crossed around 700Hz.

          Hey, thank you for posting those!

          I've been looking for a mid exactly like that wavecor, and now I guess I've found it. Unless it should be the vifa instead..

          I think the winners are ...us! Those look like great drivers, the prices seem reasonable, and now we have measurements to evaluate by and work from. Can we ask for more than that?

          thanks again,

            All those driver looks like winner to me ... except for the price for both woofer!

            That is exactly what I was thinking of. It looks like Scan-Speak has made some significant improvements on what most thought were just vifa retreads.

            The Wavecors are going in a center channel. Paying around $120/ea for the performance that those Wavecor drivers give is not a bad deal at all, although I paid much less on ebay from a private seller. The Peerless exclusive have similar performance for less, but I don't think I'll ever warm up to those silver frames and phase plug. The Wavecor full size tweeters look interesting also.

              Hello, I have a few questions.

              You have the paper based wavecor, correct?

              Does it have a sticky coating?

              Could you post CSD graphs of the above drivers? I realize FR graphs have the same info, but it is easier to visualize resonances with a CSD graph.

              Thank you

                Yes, they are the paper based cones. I do not have these back yet, but the WF120BD04(s) that I have are the paper based cones also. They definetly coated, but it is not sticky and no tacky feel to it at all, not at all like the coated slit cone Scan-speaks I used to have. The Scan-Speaks were sticky and seemed to attract dust like a magnet, no such problem with the Wavecor(s).

                Here is the CSD for the WF152BD03:

                  The WaveCor is $123, not $60?

                    Right, but there aren't really any drivers that match its' combination of smooth extended response and low HD for less. The Peerless exclusive comes close, but is not quite as extended and is kind of ugly to my eyes.

                      sorry if I reply to a thread of five years ago.
                      I would be very intrested to know if the tweeter Scanspeak D2604-833000 has no ferrofluid, i'm very intrested to this.
                      someone has opened for inspection?
                      thanks in advance
