This little speaker drive unit demonstrates the advantages of High-BL (it has a very big magnet for its size). This makes compensation down to 30Hz feasible at low levels.

As well as giving high sensitivity (88dB for 1 watt specified) this gives 'tight-coupling' resulting from back-emf feedback. This damps any bass resonance and also holds up the bottom end giving a roll-off closer to 12dB/octave than the 18db/octave otherwise expected. See the Visaton FR8 for comparison (both cost around 5 from CPC).

The roll-off above 15kHz and the large peak and dip around 2kHz make this unit more of a bass driver than a full-range device. The 2kHz anomoly is believed to demonstrate a common weakness of rubber roll surrounds - they allow long throw for bass use, but cause reflection of the compression wave travelling through the cone. Foam or paper surrounds can be designed to provide a matched impedance which absorbs energy at the edge of the cone, minimising the effect.
