    Any of the top 4.

    I want to put them (one per speaker) in a smallish sealed box. They all look very similar, but no idea if I am missing something.

    This will be 'just for fun' and just want to play with a small dull range speakers. I know they will have very little bass, but that is fine.

    If there is anything else in the price range you suggest, just give me a link!

    Thanks!

    All of those drivers are pretty similar parameter-wise.

    Personally, I'd go with THIS ONE. I don't know what size box you're looking for, but this one would fit nice in a sealed .3 cuft box. Plus, I prefer rubber surrounds over foam.... and I like the "bronzy" look of the cone. :b

    Although, I don't know much about neodymium-based drivers.

    I'm impressed as hell by your design and finished product, but the custom inductor thingie and the fact the speakers look like they have little/no bass (300 Hz. at the botton!?) concernes me.

    Kenneth, I know Madisound will "rollback" inductors to custom values for you.
