Cant go wrong with a Volt driver. Once experienced, never forgotten.

I did some 5" +1" coax cabs a while ago.

BMS loaded, I really like how they sound.

Use them as monitions in the studio when tracking vocal and other quite instruments, they don't do much below 90Hz very crisp and detailed.

Thanks all - I’ve asked Volt for a price, the CX220.1 sounds ideal.

Hmm, £250 direct from Volt - no availability until mid August!

Back to the drawing board…

I have a couple of pairs of Tannoy i8s, also the controller (TX1) which can be used as a crossover to separate sub, or an eq for full range use.

PM me if any interest.

A bit leftfield, but depending on how loud you need it to be you might be able to find a good deal on some car audio coax speakers. The stated power handling obviously needs to be taken with a bucket of salt, but I've had some pretty loud and great sounding ones from Infinity and Focal in the past.

I’ve been eyeing up this 6” P-Audio coaxial for a compact 12v rig. It seems to tick all the boxes of my needs, which sound similar to yours.

 Space - The final frontier.
The challenge being what are you going to compromise - Efficency vs. bandwidth.
So deciding factor might be how low vs. how loud.
Some drivers like being in a small a box as possible - This makes the natural roll off steeper, but flatter in the pass band. Useful for drivers with a small x-max. But crossover frequency will be fairly high.
Lots of mid drivers have a decent x-max- This makes them more suitable for use with reflex ports which can extend the bandwidth while still giving resonable efficiency. I am thinking of allignments like QB5 where the port hump is actively filtered to give an extended response without too much excursion.
Time spent with Hornresp can give interesting results - Driver in reflex cab, run sim and then use the filter wizard to check the response & displacement.

Thinking along the lines of a 6.5” + comp or tweeter, the original top for the sub was a 6 x 3”, but I’m not so keen on building similar.

Happy to build or buy used, budget is c£150

Thanks!


Not coax, but the B&C 6MBX44 mid-bass driver in a 3l reflex box tuned to 120Hz handles 200W continuous and is about 96dB/W. About £120 each though, so might be out of your budget...

I had those and I thought they was too heavy.
Seen a German page where the basket snap of this reason, and thats in a "hifi" cab under transport, so just a warning there...Wink
