Home High Efficiency Speaker Asylum

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

yes, that is a very small baffle for "full range" reproduction

... and, of course, a driver with a high Qts (>1) is generally considered a better choice for OB alignments. I know there are published "factory" specs for the Lii drivers, but 1) I don't recall them and 2) I have no idea if they're accurate.
By all means, consider the 'famous' and very versatile ;) OB design (re)popularized years ago by Joseph Esmilla (see link below).


I guess the other question for the OP, "AudioDwebe", would be what other large twincone "full range" drivers have you heard? e.g., EV LS-12 or LS-15? Altec "Biflex"? Have you listened extensively to good coaxials (e.g., Altec 604 or 605 Duplex, Tannoy coaxes)? You may just be looking for a different sound than the Lii provides.

"Full range" is very much a fringe niche.
OB is very much a fringe niche.
i.e., one is in the rarefied territory of (fringe)^2 (niche)^2. ;)

I have played around with both extensively, but moved on after about 15 years of experimentation. YMMV, though, of course!





all the best,
