    TL 1102 equivalentt

    Hi to everyone on board,

    I am on a project right now to create a mid sized speaker based on a TAD 2001 Driver and horns.
    I want to create a 2 way system based "probably" on a pair of tl 1102 per side.

    Could anyone tell me or advise me an EQUIVALENT ?
    Gauss 3184 ?
    Anything else worth trying ?
    I WANT a paper cone. And alnico.
    No other substitute please. Matter of taste
    Thanks for your help....

    Phil

    The AL-1103 is supposed to be a very good replacement:

    It is made by Davis for Akoustik, and designed by a french contractor to replace the TAD TL1102

    No direct experience, but the JBL 1200Fe is highly regarded (and distortion plots are very impressive), but it is a ferrite driver.

    If you want to stay with alnico magnets you will likely only find vintage drivers, like the Altec/great plains audio...

    But while we are a t it, if you like alnico magnet maybe you would like field coil drivers even better:

    Supravox also comes to mind

    Another option would be to commission Davis to build a special version of the 31TCA12 with an alnico magnet (similar to the unobtainable JMF version), but the price will likely be similar to the AL1103 (and probably even higher for only 4 drivers on special order...).
    EDIT: oups, forgot you only wanted paper cones!

    Hi pw8888

    How did your project turn out?
    What driver did you end up with?
