  • 8" Neodymium Woofer 4 Ohm - anyone used it?

    Has anyone used this woofer? Thoughts? I'm thinking about two of them as a three-way with a Fountek FR88EX.

    I've never personally used any of them, but others will want to know which driver you are talking about. Is it by chance this one: http://www.parts-express.com/pe/show...number=299-098

      Technically, that's not a three-way. The number of 'ways' is the number of passbands in the crossover. You would still be describing a two-way, unless you're planning to use a tweeter above the FR88EX. If you will be shading the lower woofer in your dual-woofer config to provide baffle step compensation then it's a 2.5-way, because the upper woofer overlaps the lower woofer's passband.

      It's time to pick up a copy of the Loudspeaker Design Cookbook and read up on your terminology.

        Drivers will only be 84db/w, seems low for a system using an 8" driver...
