If you know of a few people who really want a shallow 8, you may want to point them towards

Product Polling - Kravchenko-Audio

He designed a really well received XBL tweeter, though there were some teething issues along the way. He is the most likely candidate to put together a small run, high quality, driver backed by a high level of customer service.

I checked the site and it looks great, the guys apparently does "made to order" parts?

I was also browsing JL Audios website and came across the ZR800-CW. I don't know how good those are for SQ though. I will have to do some digging.

The ZR800 is an outstanding midbass.

Oh yeah!?

Well I'm currently debating weather to use the ZR800 or the Audiofrog GB60 as a dedicated midbass in a 3way setup, both manufacturers are claiming 9mm of 1 way xmax (no idea how much of that is linear). The ZR800 has more cone area though...decisions...decisions...

If yo can fit the ZR800......hands down....it is the right choice. I made the switch from the TM65 (which holds its own for sure) and It is no contest. The ZR800 is sick.

Only point that I would have to give to the GB60 is that it can play higher.

Love your reviews. Going to try to start understanding some of those terms you used. Still new to all this.

I really hate that those speakers are $$$ but they're Made in China... =/ But wow at the build quality and flat response curve.

Well enough about the 8" drivers. I'm going to use the GB60. Well time to get this thread slightly back on track lol

@ErinH nice review, when are you going to test the GB60?

Andy is max power increased with a higher crossover like 350Hz@24db?
