    It's a gross misconception that you can't use low Q drivers in doors. The lower Q here is a result of excellent motor damping, a BL figure of 7.8 newton/ampere-meter on just 18 grams of moving mass. Very nice acceleration and control. In addition, if we look at Q itself as simply a function of bandwidth, then by applying the necessary EQ on the low end you are in fact changing the Q of driver. These have the motor and the power handling capability to provide the desired results for nearly any application. How low you should cross will depend solely on your application, mainly power/excursion related.

    These have never been mounted or used in any way.

    Pics of the system for those who asked. The crossover is for this combination only.

    Cost me over $700 for this. I'll make you an insane deal on the whole set. Talk to me.
