    I'm looking for a 4 ohm speaker for a small 1x12 cabinet (1.1 cubic feet). I've seen a few around but they seem to be geared more toward home or car audio and have low sensitivity. It will need to handle 200 watts. Any suggestions?

    Thanks
    My cabinet is 1.3 sq. ft. (correction) and 2 2.5" square ports that are 3.5" deep. I have checked out eminence - they don't seem to make many 4 ohm drivers. B&C does but they seem to be special order and probably very expensive but I will contact them to find out.

    The Avatar web site www.avatarspeakers.com shows a 4 ohm version of the Delta 12LF is available. The Delta 12LF was designed to work in smaller enclosures.

    1.3 cu. ft is about the same size as the TL-806 enclosure that EV designed for the EVM12L. While not a bass speaker per se, it sounds really nice for bass if you can live without massive low end.

    That Delta LF might be just what I'm looking for. The eminence site doesn't mention the 4 ohm version. Thanks!

    Meekster-
    This may be a dumb question but whats the best way to plug up a port? Can I just glue a block of wood in there?
    Thanks for the offer on the speaker but I think shipping from finland would be too much money. Sounds like jock is jockin' for it anyway.

    Thanks again meekster. I just got Dave from avatar's price list for speakers. For the ones that he carries the prices are great!
