A 'compression driver' is ment to be hooked up to a 'horn'
basically a tweeter with a wave guide....



WTF audio pipe.... love the chicks but hate the gear....

Reminds me a lot of the Aura Bass Shakers.
Really though, those aren't compression drivers at all

I have two aura bass shakers that I don't need anymore, I'm in Edmonton now so shipping is necessary.
They were used on the seats in my old car, one underneath and the other in the back, then the passenger seat had same setup. The ones under the seats are still there as I was too lazy to take them out after the car was sold. Be a pain to remove them as its a hard to reach spot.
I had a 2x75 watt amp running all four of them, worked great. Could vibrate the seat pretty hard when the volume was turned up high.
