Build a WO 10 and put these in it:  Decware MODEL DHMPRO

Go here: http://www.decware.com/newsite/mainmenu.htm, click Speakers, and scroll down.

Your friend knows not of what he speaks. The WO will blow him away. If he likes it, build him two.

Read the details on SPL with that driver. I've been looking for years for better drivers than Steve's to put in a WO. Now Steve offers that "better" driver. I'd say buy it.

I hope Steve D. will chime in here and let us know how well these drivers perform in a Wicked One. How low will they go? I know they'll be loud, and with a reasonable size amp.

Has anybody reading here heard these drivers up close and personal?

Do they have substantial output below Fs in a Wicked One? (I bet they do.)

OK, read and become enlightened:

"Just Letting anyone else who is interested know that Steve said the DHM108B's would go better [than the DHM Pros].  
Cheers
David"

From this thread: http://www.decware.com/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1172444696

I'd still like Steve D. to chime in and describe the differences between the two drivers. What box does Steve recommend for the DHMPRO? How about PA use vs. home use?

(Now I'll go searching around and most likely find the answers to my questions.)

Braggi,

Im with you on this one...Steve has yet to designate an appropriate application for these hot PROS, the only thing remotely Ive seen is the warning that these PROs are not designed for the death box.  ALSO, is it just me or does Steve's DHM108 look EXTREMELY similar to the Dayton ST255-8 10" Series II Woofer sold on the parts express website? the specs are surprising very similar...hmmm but $35 cheaper on parts express.  should I just buy the Daytons for my Wicked One?

94 dB efficiency at best, in car. that's how infinity rates them.

I am almost done with the WO, prolly next week we're in biz.  I got the Infinitys off of ebay brand new for about $240 total to the door.  I am using oak cuz I want to stain it a nice dark walnut so it matches the rest of the wood in the house...that might actually add some time to the completion date.  I will definitely post pics later though.
