surface area matters more than displacement, because in specific setups like bandpass or ported when playing near tuning the cone barely moves, but is under extreme levels of stress/pressure....

the kicker however is that with entry level drivers you usually get T/S parameters that are more inline with sealed, or giant ported boxes, than small ported boxes.

I'm personally a huge fan of the TangBand 8" speakers, tho I wouldn't call them entry level.
