I'm needing to build a couple small 2 way's for a friends billiard room. I have a couple of these tweets laying around that I intend to use.

Once I decide on the woofers, I will build passive xovers for them. No onto my question
Anybody use these before ?

The price makes them really tempting. I'm wondering how well they will balance with the tweets I have. :)

if you look on the parts express project showcase I'm pretty sure there is a project using those same drivers. yep, here it is http://www.partsexpress.com/projectshowcase/daylum/driver.html

http://www.partsexpress.com/pe/showdetl.cfm?&DID=7&Partnumber=295-300 those are the drivers I used in my fronts, but I'm rebuilding them. I'll sell you both speakers bor $115+shipping if you're interested.

Yea they had those as a "deal of the Weekend" a couple of weeks back. I picked one up and I'm going to use it for a sub in my office at work. Everyone on the TechTalk boards say they are really nice speakers for the money. They say that the midange sounds much better than the:http://www.partsexpress.com/pe/showdetl.cfm?&DID=7&Partnumber=295-305 and that the bottom end is pretty good too. I'm excited about finishing up my little project. I'm curious to see if this little sub will go down as far as my modeling says it will.

Didn't see that one. Thank you. Guess the tweets are a decent match. But I gotta go with my own cabinets man. Dare to be different :D :)

I've used the aluminum cones (those ones), and the clarity and bass is unrivaled for the price.

Do they sound boomy or popie, because a lot of aluminum cones I've have hear have a tendency to sound really popie...

The dayton reference have aluminum cones. I have a set of the newer 4ohm 6's in the car now. Sound pretty good to my old ears :)

When they get in the lower range and an impulse sound is sent to them they make a poping sound and get punchy and ringy at that point..... It's hard to describe it, but aluminum cones do it....

I wasn't sure how to spell it, I knew you know what it is cause we had a conversation on it once involving aluminum cone subs.....
