I've taken the woofers from several broken ART200's, and Wanted to make a subwoofer-wall (haha, dj & an engineer, I need this)

But I cannot find the technical specs for the drivers anywhere!

All I know so far is:
It's official replacement part is: L12-ART 200A/AM
Frequency Range goes down to 50Hz @ -1-dB
Frequency Response goes down to 70Hz @ -3dB
It's a 12 inch driver


And that's everything, I'm just trying to figure out how low they can go, and whether they'd be suitable as subs, and hopefully find enough info so I can model them with WINISD.

Thanks for your help guys

Any of the RCF 2 way design use a Pro Audio driver that is good at 40hz and up. SO if you are planning on a subwoofer design for 40hz and up it can be possible with a 15 but not much with a 12. If you have a LOT of them then maybe be able to build a 40hz subwoofer .

Without T/S parameters your guess is as good as mine. All you can do is experiment with cabinet sizes and tuning frequencies.
and whether they'd be suitable as subs
Any pro audio driver that was designed for 70Hz @ -3dB is not going to have the excursion capabilities for sub woofer duty. Just my opinion.
