Mark, as Jason points out, cone speaker drivers are measured by the outside diameter, i.e., your green line. The Axiom 5.25" mid-woofer measures 5 1/4" across.

Wait, wait, wait. Are you telling me Mark could have taken a driver with a diameter of know size spec, and measured it himself to see what that spec corresponded to?

And besides, what if a properly calibrated ruler wasn't available?

Smarta**es.

You know that Axiom gets love from me, and I'm NOT saying that I don't trust them. But, there are lots of speakers out there that claim an 8" woofer, while the reviewer notes it's 7" or something similar.

There seems to be lots of confusion on the subject, as Googling for it brings up many different answers. I just want to know what the "official" measurement is in the industry.

Exactly. Because the metal frame adds .5" all the way around. \:\)
