I divide loudspeaker drivers into two categories, Home Audio Drivers And Pro Sound Drivers. Each are designed to do different things but are essentially interchangeable. A DIYer can mix and match drivers to get the sound he wants.
My thoughts on Full Range Drivers – I consider these to be Home Audio Drivers because they are typically used in home environments, have limited power handeling and offer a smooth sound.
My thoughts on Pro Sound Drivers – They offer much higher power handling and typically a rougher sound – although there are smooth sounding Pro Sound Drivers I like very much.
