I srsly question their linearity at full excursion. i would not expect good highs out of them while playing low, however they may make a cool driver to play with in a hone situation crossing into say the 200Hz range into a sub that can play that high easily like a Dayton Reference or many others.

and the efficiency sucks.

**** at that price they better be awesome. That is Scan, Seas, HAT L4 ect. territory which are proven drivers. Hell you can get one of the crowd fav. peerless for a lot less then that.

To damn expensive to even buy one to check out.

12mm of xmax! For a 3" driver that's insane. That's more than many subs.

Something doesn't seem right to me though. It has an Fs of 70Hz and only 20 watts RMS power handling. If you cross it significantly higher than 70, or even at 70, how would you even come anywhere close to the max excursion? That just doesn't make any sense to me. If I am misunderstanding how these factors work together please correct me.

They are actually pretty cheap when you realize they are used here::laugh:

I'll believe them when I hear them. I've never heard a driver that wasn't muddy when trying to play full range. Unless this has some freakishly amazing new technology that isn't evident, you can't play a booming kickdrum and vocals cleanly. I find it's easier to play low and high concurrently. Some drivers can handle that. It's the low and mid frequencies that conflict the most.

And that surround is definitely warped or out of alignment.

imjustjason has a pair of cabinets similar to those clair's. A whole array of 3"s and tweets. You start looking for the subwoofer, its pretty damn impressive, and they are definitely NOT muddy. They sound great. I think they use aura drivers, but he'd have to chime it to clarify since he built em.

Mine have 9 - 5.25 inchers and 27 - 1" tweeters in each cabinet. All Audax.
