    I get about 4 3/8" from the under side of the mounting lip, thanks for asking.

    Yep, I can appreciate that. They're not exactly shallow. These would require a spacer at a minimum.

    Begging to be part of a killer 8" 2way, though. Very wide bandwidth. In fact, the only reason I am offering them up at all is because I was able to grab a pair of MOTUS UH205PW1 drivers for home use (look those monsters up). There's a big price difference between the TB and the MOTUS but their respective performance compares very well. I would not hesitate to do a full-on custom install to make these work in a vehicle. The dual coils give you the option of FR response or Qts shaping as well. Lots of possibilities with these.

    Thanks. Sometimes it's easy to feel that way but I get it, to each his own. I know a lot of these guys are running some pretty loud setups and need mids that they can thrash without worrying too much about them failing. Like the pair I sold you, those won't fail under most conditions. These are more for the SQ/SQL guy who wants low bass up front so the sub can seemingly disappear. Would make for a hell of large format two-way, the top end is really smooth and overall sensitivity is nice so low power is okay.

    These are on ebay, along with some other drivers. Just FYI.
