It looks to be a bit better all the way around with the exception of cost no?

Generous 6.5 mm of Xmax with 48 mm peak-to-peak excursion before damage :eek:

Does that not seem disproportionate to anyone else?

Just under an inch of inward travel before damage doesn't sound too extreme for an 18" pro woofer. It's liekly the suspension won't ever let it get that far anyway.

It isn’t out of the question, it just means you’d have a hard time damaging the driver. 6.5mm is most likely the distance in which the voice coil is still in the gap.

I understand. I'd suggest a more reasonable xmax like how the 460HO is calc. Can someone calculate a realistic number? It will make sims more accurate @LTD02

Are these a direct replacement for a PA460... aka will this work in the VBSS or MiniMarty?

Founf this old thread but it wasn't really helpful.

It's also a bundled here with a baltic birch enclosure:

You could drop into either of those enclosures in fact you could probably get away with using the VBSS DSP settings. That said this driver looks like it brings just a hair more bottom end output near tuning and looses a couple dB up top. Powered by an inuke or NX 3000 you don't really gain much over the PA460. In the VBSS both those drivers are primarily xmax limited. It could be more linear then the PA460 at high output levels but I wouldn't know unless tested.

Where it looks like the PN470 would have an advantage over the PA460 is in more compact higher tuned enclosures (PA Bass Bins) where more power can be thrown into the PN470.
