I was comparing the specs of the raw compact drivers - not with crossover's applied to them.

Full range can definitely work but it's more of a balancing act.
i would deff use subs with them...no doubt about that just thought from imax point of view cause all there speakers in the real imax theaters are full range

they're run full range, that doesn't mean they DO full range. There's just no crossover applied.

Full range means the speaker has to act like a sub, or at least 10dB lower: 105dB ref level at 20Hz is the sort of thing 12" woofers and 400w and a big box are used for. Sure looks like a sub.

So I say if you want each channel to act like a sub, be prepared to spend 2x on drivers, wood, more complicated crossover, and buy more external amps.
