    IMO it's hardly better than an Eminence Basslite 2012, and pales compared to a Deltalite II 2512.

    Yeah I ran it through Win ISD and it looks like the eminence drivers would be better in the box I'd use. I was looking for a 4 ohm 12" but there doesn't seem to be a whole lot of choices

    Bill, how would you come to that conclusion ? :meh:

    The 12PR300 and the DL22512 are pretty much a dead match...
    and the 12PR300 doesn't have that nasty spike at 2,5kHz which you have to compensate for in your crossover design.... the DL22512 is a little cheaper, that's a plus...

    By modeling them both in a cab.
    Only if you're building a hi-fi or PA cab. Musical instrument drivers are supposed to have break-up modes.

    Granted, the 12PR300 is tighter in the low end than the DL2 2512, but that is merely a different voicing...

    True that, but that is one hefty spike at a point which has come to be commonly known as the neo honk.
    Has nothing to do per se with break up modes .....

    As you well know, there are more design options than fullrange mid woofer with tweeter on top.........

    Bill, can you tell us more about that? I read that early on Leo Fender was surprised by comments from western swing bands that some of the early speakers were too hi-fi.

    Look at the charts for the SVT driver. :eyebrow:
    The magnet material is moot.
    It only has to do with break up modes.

    The earliest speakers were hi-fi. That includes the D130.
