Home High Efficiency Speaker Asylum

Need speakers that can rock with just one watt? You found da place.

RE: What attributes make a driver a good match for a SET?

"I'll be designing an open baffle speaker using an 8" full range driver with super low inductance, coupled to twin Eminence Alphas and an Original Heil AMT tweeter."

There are drivers which a manufacturer or customer can call a "full range driver", but there is no such thing as a full range driver. We've covered this misnomer multiple times in the past. Even "TheTubeGuy1954" gets it now. Moving on...

You should consider using two (per channel) low frequency drivers, wired in-phase. This will give you essentially omni-directional LF output, without the front/back sound cancellation problems from the baffle.
