Fun experiment
With the frequency response graph looking as flat as shown, I thought I'd play around with this little driver - and at $11 each, why not? I'll spare you the details, but I ran these full range in a ported cabinet with an 8" woofer. the woof is crossed over about 800hz. The imaging and upper frequency detail is outstanding - not only for $11, but for drivers at most any price range. The big downer that I noticed (although it is getting better with break-in) is that snare drums just don't pack any punch. That is where it is most noticeable. I'm going to play around with different woofers and x-over design. If I can figure out the drum issue, this will be the best cheap speaker design that I have ever heard/created. Definitely worth playing around with! Do I like them better than my Markaudio's? Not sure yet...

Fabulous little midrange for Car Front Doors!
Hi Folks,
I used a pair of these as high in the front doors of a 2007 Toyota Highlander as I could mount them, a few inches below the window and door switch modules. I connected them out of phase with the 5.25 inch full range pioneer 2 ways lower in the doors, using only a 65 mfd bennic NP electr. cap for a crossover.
My 2007 highlander did not have midrange speakers in the dash as the newer ones do, and absolutely no midrange makes it to the driver or passengers's ears from the low door mounted front (or rear) speakers. These, mounted high, with broad dispersion, fulfilled that need perfectly! They are astoundingly smooth frequency response. And while I don't expect to be able to drive them with a huge amount of power, they do just fine in this use.
