I finished up deadening and sealing my doors this evening. With minimal time to tune/listen i was pretty impressed with the lower end on these. For now they are crossed at 63 and 3.2k 24db slope.

Which size? My 8"s are crossed from 50-180 with L-R 24db/oct filters on both sides. With limited gain they can go down lower, but I like it a tad on the loud side...and they are also in small sealed enclosures (.4 ft^3 per driver).

The naturally start to roll off around 1khz on the high end, and do so at a pretty shallow rate, around 6db/oct. My install is very different though, so any high-frequency measurements won't be applicable to a typical door install.

I would generally not recommend using just a tweet with the 8"s, but a small widebander would work very well.

Am waiting for my damping material to arrive so I can install them, I have the 6.5". I bought four Audax TM010A1, so hopefully I can use two for each side but looks like they need to be crossed at 6khz. The Flutes should play up to 5khz, so am hoping that will be enough.

I would feel very comfortable doing that. I've seen them paired with just a tweet in at least one design, but that's in a home application where you have much more control over the response.

This driver seems to be very interesting. I'm looking for new drivers for midbass duty in AP or Sealed enclosures to fit inside a door. Perhaps 0,3ft│ maximum enclosure volume, when I model them they seem to work fine. Impedance phase seems to be nice and smooth, almost as good as Dayton Rs180, they should be easy for the amp to drive.

Mojo, how's your impression of the lows with these drivers now when you've used them for a while?

I still really like them. I also still can't beleive you can get this much for $30 per driver.

At this point I'm running 2-way and crossing at 2500 at the top and 65 hz at the bottom. This brought the stage down a bit from the 3750 x-over I had before, but gave me a little better imaging as I have the Flutes in the doors.

And they will pound when you want them to. Mt Eden has four remix versions of Sierra Leone available thru Amazon now, and the 4th track (which is more of a house mix) hits clean and hard over and over and the Flutes love it. I love it.

I am considering adding a midrange in the kick for a 3-way system, in order to allow crossovers that occur before beaming. Got my eye on the Aura Whisper at this point.

I've decided on the 8ohm version. The T/S parameters fit my application more. Can't believe how good they model in a 6 lit (0,21ft│) vented box, might actually try a vented application in the door with Fb around 55Hz...

Too bad they don't cost $30/driver in Sweden, they sell them for twice the price here. Everything is expensive as crap in Sweden... My P99 retails for $2200 here, you got about half that price in the US lol.

I echo original poster's sentiments: extremely smooth, stout midbass, great clarity without being harsh anywhere in the range. Have them on 55wrms per channel of Audison and they sing. Only had to tick down 2kHz 2 clicks and that is all. Using Audison crossover so it is hard to tell exact point, but I would guess ~75-3500 is the range they are supposed to play. I am absolutely loving these! Pretty heavy drivers with a large frame - plan accordingly. Excellent Build quality to boot! 4ohm version by the way.
