  • Interesting buyout...

    ...found here. In fact, it bears a striking resemblence (albeit with a stamped frame) to lovely little guy.

    Picture shows what looks like a typical neo motor, and the description calls it a "ceramic" motor.

    $8 in quantity (does anyone else not show the qty price breaks on the item page anymore? I have to add a bunch to the cart, a further PITA because I do not have an 'empty cart button') seems like a pretty fair price given the pricing of TB neo full rangers these days.

    Couple on the way for me, along with six of the 2 ohm SAS unshielded buyouts. Thinking FWWW with the SAS covering from ~300Hz and down, and the TB up top. Bet it can be done. The SAS drivers model pretty nice in multiples.
    Don't listen to me - I have not sold any $150,000 speakers.

    It's the "attractive pincushion frame" that sold me on it :p

    Looks nice. Johnny I am scared of becoming a buyout junkie. I am ordering some x-over parts this week and may throw 4 of them in the cart.... :(

      Mike, if a guy just wants to build speakers for the he!! of it he can do a lot worse than to consume buyouts

        I like your idea. Those are interesting drivers. How will you handle the difference in efficiency between the set of woofers and the FR?

        Don't worry, if your parachute fails, you have the rest of your life to fix it.

          I'd check Chad Gray's website for response plots of the W3-881 and how he dealt with the xover on them. It's an LR and LCR, pretty simple.

          It's the same cone anyway, and I imagine the buyout looks better for a sealed box due to higher Qts. Depending on output, you may have to go to 400-500 Hz to keep the Xmax happy.

          The overview is the only spot that says ceramic, and is likely spliced from the Ferrite version, which is the -881SJF.

                    Wiring the woofers in series will maintain the same sensitivity as a single driver, which isn't a whole lot higher than the TB full ranger. Move them out in the room a bit and it would be fine, especially if you cross at the baffle loss frequency.

                      I'm interested in how these measure up. I'll be keeping an eye on this thread.
