Godfather series were appx 200-250W.  Rose series were about 500-600.

I used to own Godfather 10's and 15's and Rose 12's.... A buddy of mine still has 3 rose 10's.   Very nice in their day.....   In fact, I think I have one of their mids and tweets in some old home speakers  (they were 8 ohms)

I used the godfathers in ported for a brief time and wasn't really impressed, I ended up sealing up the ports.   I've run all my M&M's in small to moderate size sealed with good results   The 10's were in about 1.5 cube and the 15 was in about 2.75.   As I recall modeling and testing them out, they were pretty forgiving in sealed box.

I have TS parameters for the Rose 12's somewhere in a notebook, but I had measured those myself..... I don't think they even came with TS parameters, only the dealers had those spec sheets.

If you do turn up M&M TS parameters, drop me an email, I may try a new project for my friends Roses this summer.

 

And that fella there is the 8 ohm version.

The M & M subs that I remember from back in the day were a very small enclosure sub. I don't know if all were that way or not but a shop in Phx Az had 4 18's in a pyramid one on each of 4 sides and just big enough for the speakers to fit. Basically 4-18's in less then 3 cubic ft and it was impressive but I don't know if the subs were special for the application or what but it was told to me that M & M didn't need the airspace . It was during an era that seen Iso Baric set ups and new lower airspace requirement subs IE: Kicker Solo Barics. If I remember the car was a green wagon and was located in Chandler Az. mid to late 80's I think it ended up being somewhat famous.

I suspect they could have used a larger box, though we used a lot of them in relatively small sealed enclosures with good results.

M&M had the world SPL record back in 87-89. 

Too bad the old man died though.

I got to looking around for the info on the vehicle I remembered. I got ahold of Wayne Harris who had the terminator in the area in 87' but it didn't have M & M's and wasn't green and he didn't recall the car I remembered either so I may be losing my mind. There was a trend in the mid 80's for M & M and Babb speakers and both seem to be gone I did see a few ads wanting to buy and selling M & M I didn't notice how old they were but there were several Portland and Seattle Craigslist. As I mentioned earlier during the mid to late 80's every manufacturer seemed to be engineering ways to reduce air space requirements and most everyone used sealed enclosures if you have to experiment I would start there.

OK, Now I'm gettin all nostalgic, found this thread:

http://www.audiogroupforum.com/csforum/showthread.php?t=15839

Put the 15" in 5 cubes tuned to 30-32 hook up an old school punch 150, and voila!   LOL

I can't even remember what series the clear cone ones were now....I smoked a shitload of pot in those days.....   I do recall the clear ones were the entry level series though.
