I'm selling a pair of Audio Nirvana Super 12" ALNICO full ranger drivers. These are essentially new. They have less than 10 hours of run time and are in pristine condition in their original boxes. I'm selling them because the project we were working on went in a different direction.

Frequency response from 37 hz to almost 20,000 hz. You can expect at least 99 db efficiency. It handles 30 watts continuous RMS (normal listening level will be about 1/10 watt). Impedance is 8 ohms. Voice coil is 1.5 inches (38 mm). Total magnet weight is 1.9 lbs., using 9 individual elements. Total weight is 10 lbs. The cone is made of paper. The surround is accordion style and made of treated cloth. The phase plug is copper anodized, machined solid aluminum. The frame is cast aluminum.


Cheers,
Morten

Hello Morten,

 Your heading states these are the Alnico magnet drivers but your price and physical description match the neodymium drivers. Could you please clarify.

Thx,
Dieter

Good catch. I grabbed the wrong price off their website.

Hi Morten,

Am I understanding the AN 12" drivers are Classic and not Super as you state in your response to another party. I'm confused somehow.

I'm only interested in the Super AlNico drivers and not the Classic's.

Correct me if I'm wrong.

As well I'm in same boat as for driver size, I'm not sure I can use such a large driver but I am considering it and trying to figure things out.

I'm sure you can understand it's not such an easy task, figuring things out that is. I'm working on it.

The 12s are Supers. The 10s are Classics. Bothe are ALNICO.

Hi.  Do you have the prototype cabinets available as well ?

Not really available. I did build proto cabinets but have butchered them with multiple cutouts/blanks on multiple sides for various size and types of drivers plus ports. They're raw and a mess but perfectly suitable for quick testing of drivers.
