  • Musical 10" woofer?

    Anyone have a recommendation for a 10" woofer that will play to 300 hz or so but still have some authority on the bottom end?
    I've looked at everything I can find and the SB sb29nrx75-6 looks the best on paper although the SEAS L26RO4Y looks interesting.

    Thanks
    John

    Price? Sensitivity? Impedance? Does any of that matter to you?

      It will be active and eq'd, so not really.

        If sensitivity isn't of concern a lot of subwoofers will play happily to 300Hz.

          Get it while it's on sale

          Looks good to at least 500hz. Has a lot of copper in the motor.

            That looks more like a HT sub. Looking more for a woofer that will sound good at 300 hz

              hey John, hadn't seen you in a while here. Or maybe I just missed some posts.

              Back to the point, what's your budget?

              Acoustic Elegance makes a dynamite 10" woofer, their TD10S. It can easily do 1000Hz if you want.

              I'm using the RSS315 as a woofer in my 3-ways currently. (check the Byzantium link in my signature). The RSS265 can easily handle 500Hz. It's response is actually flat to 1000Hz before cone breakup kicks in.

              Eminence Deltalite II 2510 if you don't need deep extension.

              The RS270 is certainly capable of 300hz.

              One of my all time favorite 10" woofers . . . the Usher 1001B. Usher makes some dynamite woofers.

                You specifically said "Musical" in the title. That has Reference Series written all over it. I know for sure that the RSS265HF can easily play up to 300 and is squeaky clean all the way up there. It's a sub so it definitely has the authority on the bottom end as well.

                    Looks like you have your eye on a high end driver. Have you considered Acoustic Elegance? I bet one of their TD models would fit your application quite well. Even their 15's are rated up to 2khz thanks to ultra low inductance (though you wouldn't necessarily need to cross that high due to beaming). AE sound is one of my favorites when it comes to bass, I am currently building an IB setup with AE subwoofers for an upcoming muscle car install. Very excited :D

                      You'd be hard pressed to find any good quality ten inch driver that doesn't have give perfectly good results to 300Hz. For that matter the same would apply to twelves, fifteens and eighteens. Sub drivers tend not to be used above 100Hz, but that's not because they can't go higher, it's because you don't want to run subs into the directionally locatable frequency range.

                        I'll definatly +1 on the RS270-8 after using them in my 442 build. They work nicely in a little over 1c.f. Sealed.

                          Hey Pete, Yea, One day I had had the idea that it might be fun to get back to playing music. So I dusted off the drums, found a rock band, then signed up for some jazz lessons,
                          practiced a lot, found a jazz band, and now a reggae band too. Maybe a bit much, but it didn't leave much time for building speakers. Anyway, I'm reworking the focused array that I had at the last Iowa event that I attended, 07 or so. Trying to get a better blend from the 10" to the two 4"midbass. I'll take a look at your suggestions. Thanks

                            That is a function of cone diameter, correct? At what frequency does a 10" become directional? I could not pick it up at 150 and looking at the off axis response, most 10's seem to have the same response on axis to at least 45 degrees off axis to 300hz.
