Hi
Does anyone know how these drivers differ? Are they all the same?
Thanks.
Michael

I've used a few, if I have any details they will be at home.

Some were 4Ω whilst others were either 6 or 8Ω.
The mounting screws / spacers differed as well as some physical profiles.
All I've owned have either been sold or used in projects, was anything in particular bothering you?

Hi
Thanks for the replies.
Nothing is bothering me.
I am interested in building an active three way with a pair of these coaxial drivers, and I was looking for opinions about the differences between them.
Are the LS50 drivers worth the extra?
I would be adding bass augmentation.
Proffski: Might you have access to raw drivers?

Sorry, no access to any new KEF transducers.
My last pair ended up in Poland.
LS50s... Magnificent!!!
