Home High Efficiency Speaker Asylum

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

is the goal cheap, good, cheap & good, or... ?

I am always looking for good/cheap/interesting alternative drivers :-/

In terms of cheap, good ol' Pyle has a panoply of cheap compression drivers.
In terms of good... well... who knows?

FWIW, I do have one pair of the cheap-ish Pyle PDB512 2/3 bolt treble drivers (I do believe I mentioned this before; I am too lazy to go back & check!).
Pyle PDB512 at PE

They seemed OK when I tried them on 511B horns -- I haven't tried them on better sounding horns, but I DO intend to!

These were about the same price as the ones Freddyi's asking about, and might (?) be a little more civilized and might (???) be a little more extended in response in both directions -- maybe (????) even flatter in response than what in essence is a purpose-built PA driver.

Just a thought :-)

PS I do agree that unit-to-unit variability is a pretty common 'feature' of the cheap drivers (not just compression drivers)!

PPS One thing I can say about the above-mentioned Pyle (ahem) drivers from my relatively short tests -- the sensitivity quoted in their specs seems to be, shall we say, a tad optimistic.

Yes, a wee tad.


all the best,
