yes, so anyone who want to design a high SPL speaker with sensitivity above 88db or so wouldn't be able to use this driver...
I remember Cambridge Audio claims that the BMR speaker was "more full range" than the typical 2 or 3 inch driver, but then again, the Minx speaker can't hit below 200hz. I think it hits better at the high end that say a 2 inch Bose cubes, however...
When a speaker manufacture claim there 2" driver (insert 5 or 6") can hit low than most models because of the design, I get that you might get lower distortion with some designs, but still...according to physics, a 2, 3 or 6 inch driver is only capable of going so low! I know, cabinets, ports, room all have to be figured in...what am I missing when Speaker X says our 5 inch drivers can hit lower that speaker Y's 5 inch drivers and the aren't talking about cabinets, ports, etc?
