If you want more output, find a driver with higher Vd.
It also must have specs within the usable range as stated in the plans. That's the first thing one must do when considering a driver, in any and all of our designs.
Yes. Indeed. That too. Especially. Higher Vd, and also within the acceptable parameters.

I wonder if Eminence plans on making an updated 12" with neo motor, maybe slightly bigger coil, suitable for horn use?
The newer 18'' and 21" drivers in their touring line look really nice.(maybe not for horns though)

18" and 21" drivers can't handle the throat pressure in a full horn, and will shred the cones.

Are you aware of the 3012LF? Neo and suitable for horns.

But not for the T60.....I think that's what he's talking about.

6 - T39 4-25" 2-22" 3012LF
4 - OT12 2512 Melded/NSD2005
1 - T24
2 - XF210

Oh yeah. Good point. Complete oversight on my part. Yeah, it would be great to have a Neo option for the T60.
