perhaps you can find a knowledgeable re-coner who could tell if there's any existing basket/motor for this part to work well
Thats interesting for a project but to make a commercial speaker you canīt do that. Itīs far too expensive to make a basket, center iron , magnet , coil suspension etc.
Iīve been looking to drivers like SEAS Prestige MCA15RCY. There is something on the sound of 5.5" drivers thatīs appealing to me. Not that 755 is a 5.5 but is regarded for itīs sound. The Seas is still a bit expensive. I need a driver to put with a 18" woofer on an open baffle.
here's a good Six inch fullrange which isn't expensive
I don't like my stamped frame Nirvana8's much - one problem is their suspension goop stiffens and raised fs a half octave from the low 40's
to the mid 60's - that in turn raises qts.
You might want to take a look at the Audio Nirvana Classic alnico speakers. I am using their 15 inch classic to great effect in my system. And the prices are hard to beat. The website is over the top, but the speakers are excellent.
