Awesome Mid and Low driver
Reviewer / FromEngland / Date27 Dec 2016
I'm using it both as a subwoofer driver and as a top driver. This thing totally astonished me for thomann the price, the sound reproduction of it is amazing, and you really can't complain about the build quality either. Performance as a subwoofer driver: I didn't expect such a clear and deep sound, especially since the manufacturer's specifications claim a response from 38Hz to 5kHz, but thomann i can totally see where the "LF" part in the name is coming from, in the subwoofer enclosure i use it in it's playing loud and deep down to about 30Hz, which amazed me quite a bit. Performance as a Top/Fullrange cab mid driver: It's playing thomann very clean and accurately (this will ofcourse depend on your enclosure) up to the claimed 5kHz It also sounds very lovely, every detail i wanted it to have, it actually does have. The only thing it's missing just a little bit is ruggedness/build quality, be sure to thomann not screw it in too hard or you'll bend the mounting part of the basket. Otherwise, i do recommend this driver alot. Pro's: - Very clean and nicely sounding driver - Nice and clean bass/mids Cons: - Mounting place for the basket is kind-of bendable thomann
