My point exactly.

Depends, the one I actually picked is rather unusual. By using a 4" Voice coil you have in effect a 4" diameter dome radiator in the middel and another 2" wide ring radiator around it. This means for the same cone material thickness you get the same stiffness as a conventional 5" driver using similar materials.

So, it will do pretty well at both 40Hz and 3KHz.

As for PR, it is a system of resonant reinforcement of low frequencies, just like bass reflex, transmission line or horn loading.... ;-)

My smaller speaker gets used with a sub and thus gets into your line.

But as you know, I prefer fewer ways over more.
