Home Speaker Asylum

General speaker questions for audio and home theater.

historically it was the default!

Vintage paper cone drivers generally are very well behaved -- only when crossover design became very straightforward did woofers with awful out-of-band behavior become "reasonable" for loudspeaker design.

A classic example of a purpose-built woofer with well-behaved HF rolloff was Winslow Burhoe's 8" "EPI" woofer (and its kin). Huy Powell still builds replacement drivers (and whole loudspeakers) using a modernized version of the Burhoe woofer(s). See website below.

all the best,
