A lot of drivers from wavecor, finetuned for vehicle application...

I run the m182w with hx20t4 active on a mosconi as100.4 controlled by the P99 with amazing results..

Last month the m182w has been reviewed by car&hifi magazine and is said one of the best drivers they ever measured and heard...

Will do, I just got them in today. I am needing to grab another Fountek 89 so I have 3 of those also. I am gonna install them all and see which ones I like better. I am assuming these since they have more top end, but we will see. I am trying to get these full ranges to play 250hz on up with something like a 48db slope on the low end.

Just from playing with them free-air, these little guys have alot of potential. The top end is amazing compared to other fullrange drivers I have here, even some coaxials I have that are 3.5". The midrange sounds alot like the FR89EX, which I think is the strong point of those drivers. This was just me testing free air off of headunit power, highpassed at 170hz, I couldnt get alot of volume out of them as the 170hz at 12db {i think its 12 db} is not enough of a crossover for them. They were pretty loud, but not as loud as I will try to run them in the car. I will also try them in tiny sealed enclosures in the dash once I get to getting them in the car. I will be running them all on the MS-8 channels. I was powering them with a kenwood HU that would let me highpass them, I did not mess with the 3 band eq much at all.

Here they are sitting next to the FR89EX
