    The driver reminds me a lot of this old buyout:

    http://www.parts-express.com/peerles...4-ohm--299-250

    I have 4 of those buyouts sitting on my shelf waiting to build a killer MTM garage set of speakers with a cheap CD and waveguide I bought from PE for peanuts.

      When you get a chance, could you burn in a few and grab the T/S params if you're able?
      I won't get mine until 7/21

        They look the same, but the posted T/S for these is quite a bit different.
        Makes me think this was special run for a particular manufacturer.

        Yah, now I"ve got to find a tweeter that can play low with 96 dB efficiency. ;-)

          Sorry, I don't have a woofer tester. However, I hooked up my el cheapo LCR meter to 2 of them right out of the box and found: Le 1.089 mH and Re: 7.7 ohms for each. A bit baffling, really. Would either drop with a few hours burn in?

            I'm hoping I can make something fun with the old BC25SC06. I have a couple sitting in an unused pair of "hotrodded" B652s.

                Yup. My NS6 drivers measured 0.68 w/an Fs of 65.

                  Wow, that's pretty much identical to the old Aura NS6 drivers. Maybe an aperiodic vent (Stents) is the way to go.
                  Does an aperiodic vent minimize excursion? Xmax is the problem I'm seeing in a Unibox sim.

                    These are tempting but they model is a very large enclosure, no? Was imagining running 3 or 4 per side but it's a very big airspace. Javad

                      Well yes, clearly this is an 8 ohm driver and the NLA buyout I mentioned was a 4 ohm driver. But the frames, cone, surround, and magnet look to be at least very similar.

                          The efficiency sure is good! Not sure I'm ready for (my first) horn design.
                          I'll know much more once I grab the T/S specs.

                            Aperiodic designs would limit excursion, I would think. The Sten design calls for a single 3/8" hole per chamber, basically just lowering the Q of the box. Essentially you are just making the box leakier without introducing Helmholtz resonances in the holes you make. The closer to sealed (the less leaky), the more limited the cone excursion would be, right?

                              I spent some time in Unibox last night (of course all of this depends on accurate (and consistent) T/S params) - and found that driver excursion was
                              definitely the limiting factor. Found some old Internet discussions about AP vents, so I now knew how to munge the parameters.
                              A standard closed box model was ugly, with massive over excursion below about 100 Hz. Changing Ql on a closed box to 2 or 3 caused the
                              excursion curve to flatten a bit, but it was still over xmax below 100 Hz.
                              Preliminary model that looks best is vented, with a somewhat smallish box that's tuned a bit high.
                              We'll have an indepth discussion later, but I think that floor reinforcement and boundary reinforcement will flatten out the overall response
                              to a nice solid bass capability.
                              I"m not an expert at some of the modeling, but using Boundary Modeler reinforcement added to the Unibox FRD looks like F3 about 50Hz, and
                              F6 about 40 Hz. TBD later.

                                I found the same Don, a port tuned in the 60-80hz range performed best, tuning of 40hz required a massive box to make it work, like over 28l per driver minimum, more like double that. I don't see 4 of these things outperforming 2 decent 8" in a smaller enclosure for example 2 RS225 in 60l ported puts out a lot of nice bass to 30hz. But these things are cheap. Javad
