Hi,

I just founded two of those speaker for a good price. But I was wondering what I could put on top of that? With plans that are suitable for speakers with more than 1000w for 15s speakers, I am confused...

I will like to build a small sound system, with those fane almost free, I thought it will be a good start.
Thanks for the help!

Still never put these in supers, but according to the screen on my amp, mine seem to be able to handle peaks of up to 800 each watts or so. I limit them to 400 watts RMS but with a really slow attack. They can certainly handle more than 400w, though i wouldn't push them too much harder than that as its not worth the risk.

What makes these drive so desirable today considering there are much more powerful higher SPL drivers around today.

Would you play with a stack of 4 Fane 400W Colossus against another sound using modern high powered drivers 1000-1500 watt?

With todays AES ratings would it be safe to play 600w through these?

Are they a lot different in build and sound compared to todays 18XB's ?

Few reasons , some of us out hear love using old skool drivers like these, no we not gona go up against monster drivers/soundsystems ie like yu say with sed drivers,

some of us me included love to build old skool Vintage stacks and use Original drivers ect

as many say and lev, one of the best sounding/tone driver t/s specs ect

nostalgia reasons, aslo these driver play a wide freq band, high sensitivaty compared to new drivers of today

love the older models to these too.....

not all about monster powa all the time

cool man

Thanks for your reply, I've got 3 hardly used. 

I'm upgrading my system from 3 to 4/5 way.

Would these Fanes work in any type of Kick Bin/High bass cab to play above to new high power 1000-1500 watt subs ?

What are they worth on the used market?
