    Looking around at raw drivers I had forgotten about the siesmic 8196E. Here are the specs:
    QTS: .19
    FS: 19 hz
    QES: .21
    Xmax: 25 mm
    Pe: 1100 watts
    sens: 20 - 80 hz: 96.7 db
    EBP: 90
    With such a low Q and high EBP it looks like it will actually sound good in a vented box.

    You might take a look at the 8196HK, which is a new version that is coming out. The cone is made of honeycomb and kevlar and offer great mass and stiffness. This also leads to a bit higher Qts, which sould help a bit in the low end department unless you plan on adding a few ounces of mass to the 8196E. Yeah, I have never seen one in person, but by the specs they look superior to just about anything else out there. At $575 a pop they are quite expensive though. Also, the enclosure requirements are pretty huge. There is a guy on the DIY bass list build 4 (!) of them in 25 cubic foot enclosures each!?!

    No, I don't have any specs on the HK drivers, though they should be available within the next couple of weeks. You can email Barry Bozeman, who I shure could tell you. His email is [email protected]
