    Is it supplied with the crossover, like their OB 15inch units?

    Be interested to see how these workout.

    yes it is, for the $145 you get the coaxial woofer, tweeter and crossover with wires etc, it is simply plug and play.
    (just add a baffle, although you dont even need that!)

    and anyone will be welcome, and yes they are 95dB

    so tubes might be on the cards in the summer ;)

    And shipping is? Presumably in this case it really is by ship as they would be quite costly by air.

    Nice choice! Can it also be used in a speaker enclosure or better off as open baffle?

    yes open baffle really, QTS of 0.65 is too high for anything apart from open baffle or an aperiodic enclosure. shipping was $112 for 8-10 days Air Parcel delivery. so not too bad (they weight about 30lbs)
