Best 15" drivers for DBB

Really appreciate the offer. But with the MOFO-152 having solid response down to 24hz with insane power handling I shouldn't need any more.

 

Its not about the output at all.

What is it about?

 

Seamless transition from mains to subwoofer.

I have a pair of K-47s (18s) and 4 K-46s (15s) from the KP-600 stacks. I think the 46s would work, I'm sure there are plenty of people who will correct me if I'm wrong.

Pat,

 

I speak from experience with the MCM 2953 driver.  Go to the website and scroll down the reviews and you'll see my review  that the pair I got were WAY OFF on specs.  Not even close.  QUT was like .7??.   (I think I made a type on the spl I measured it was nowhere close to their published specs).

 

At that price QC can't be extremely high.  I've had 12" MCM woofer that had the same problem.  Hope this helps.

Very good to know. I just bought the Parts Express kit to measure T/S values. If I get a speaker that doesn't match what's published....sending it back.

 

What do you think about the MOFO driver from MCM that I mentioned?

Most important thing for me with a sub is does it blend with the mains. If the transition isn't fairly seamless it doesn't last long with me.

I use Crites 15" Cast in my La Scala's 

Another consideration with lower hertz rating @ 21 htz - 97 db is the Altec 416 8C 

 

That's if you want good tone instead of noise 

 

As to the specs of the Crites cast 15" subs I have some info I got on the net a long time ago and took a screen shot 

Not sure how accurate the specs are - and it would be good if anyone that can confirm

1526 is 4 ohm.  I wouldn't go putting two of them in an enclosure together.

I was working on the presumption that they were 4 ohm 

One per cabinet is enough
