Home Speaker Asylum

General speaker questions for audio and home theater.

What a mess...

Thanks for sharing that history of this company and it's incredible founders and stewards. Frankly, I just can't keep up.

For Scan/Peerless/Vifa from my Canadian source it's always been Solen, but I used to rely on Parts Express back in the day when the dollars were more on par...

I was excited about their "Discovery" line as there are some drivers there that are particularly close to my heart. The new little 4-incher with the larger neo magnet (10F/8424G00) appears to have roots in the famous Vifa MG10MD0908 fiberglass, that I use as mids in my WMTMW speakers that serve as my present-day reference. I would bet those full-range neo drivers would absolutely sing in a compact WMTMW...

The sub I am using right now is in a DIY setup employing a later Peerless XLS model that now seems to be re-badged as the Discovery 30W/4558T00. At $348 Canadian, can a guy find better bang for the buck? Maybe... I paid about $150 for the Peerless on sale. Value is incalculable. First time I've had a metal-cone sub pass as a "music" sub, to be sure.

Hope to do a build with an Illuminator series D3004/660000 (was a 6600 air-circ prior I believe) one day before I go, but the Revelator D2904/710003 is only a few bucks more per side for almost 3db more sensitivity...

It's funny, really, thinking about doing a build for $500 retail when a single tweeter can cost $300 or more.

Then again, those components are worlds apart.
