Default Widerange Mid/Tweet suggestions

I'm looking for a single driver of some sort to handle around 400Hz and up. If dynamic, then I would want to use it as a dipole though other types may be appealing. I'd like to avoid something that has a 'shouting' characteristic if possible, unless there is a known fix for it.

I would be crossing over actively to 15s.

On paper, the Jordan JXR6 would fit your requirements, if it will give you enough output.

I haven't heard one, so can't comment on the shoutyness or otherwise.

One of the HiVi 2 inch drivers? They are cheap too.

I'd want to go for at least the 3" to go down to 400Hz unless you don't want a lot of volume...

Personally, I'd go with a JX92S, Fostex FE108ESigma, F120a or FX120.

You're pushing those 15in units a bit high though IMO -FWIW, I wouldn't take them up past 200Hz, maximum. Those big cones don't like going much higher (big co-ax unts excepted). And unless you're very careful, vocal imaging might suffer a bit with things coming rather obviously from two different points. That's just my take on it of course.

I have looked at this driver and they say that it has better bottom end than the Jxr6. Since I need that less, I wonder if I'd get better mid/top with a Jxr6?

Is there an upper bass/ mid driver ( 5 inch ?) that is flat to about 5 Khz with no peakiness after that ? Like the Vifa P13W 5 inch driver . With enough Xmax to be used in an OB . I guess 24db ( linkwitz) crossovers will help in limiting the X max requirement .

How good are the new 5 inch Peerless or other similar drivers ?

I'd say yes.

Probably -again, I'd be very wary taking 15in units up that high though.

I think ALL woofers present a problem above 300hz, even 8in will ... it needs great care in xo design to integrate properly ... in that respect I dont think that even a good 18in studio woofer will be much different ... it just needs great care in xo design, and proper choice of other drivers

I dont know why, but I am not sure if those small light coned low wattage drivers are good with active xo

Although this 8in Fostex is also light coned and low wattaged, it does have higher sensitivity, thus will need much less power and be less strained
