Thank you.

 

This thread was hilarious.


Saying "clipping doesn't kill speakers" is a half-truth at best. Technically no, clipping itself does not hurt the speaker. But in clipping your amp, you can easily create a situation that WILL kill the speaker. Was the squared waveform the DIRECT cause of the failure? No. In the end, the answer is, always has been, and can only be... heat kills speakers. BUT, clipping increases heat generation, sometimes by a drastic amount. So to start a thread simply to state that clipping does not hurt speakers is, again, a half-truth at best.

Not to mention, as CRX said, you can place them in more than one location to help with room modes.

We need to address your true goals and narrow the field of driver choices down before we just say 8" or 15".

Again, too vague a question.

 

We need to factor in the net sensitivity of the four 8" drivers as well as the mechanical stroke.

 

Four correctly chosen 8" drivers could easily outperform a single 15".

 

Thinking back on his budget, he'll probably be better off going with a single 15".

If you go with a 15", you should seriously consider this driver.

 

http://www.parts-express.com/pe/showdetl.cfm?Partnumber=295-468

 

It has lots of copper in the motor (low inductance, low distortion), it's efficient, and it digs very deep. Works well in sealed enclosures and does even better in EBS enclosures. We're talking in the teens here. At the price, it's a no-brainer.
