Melon Head said angled up, maybe 10' away, the voices didn't seem to be coming from the floor. Seems odd when tweet speakers sound like they are on the floor.

I've read on full range drivers or wide-band plus supertweet, if the setup is lower, it seems to image higher than the drivers.

It would be cheap enough to throw it on a 4' x 4' and try it.
Then again, maybe the front wall bounce (if small baffle) tricks the brain into thinking the image is higher.................

Well,

I plan to make it a U-frame for the woofer, but opened for the AN.

So I don't know if you can still call it tall and slim... Will look more like a pregnant lady

Any suggestions? Did you try your AN15 with any woofers yet?

Was looking at this one

Celestion 15" Professional Woofer 8 Ohm 299-418

Seems to have a pretty good flat frequency response down to 30Hz.

OK I am back now.

I definitely agree with woofer support on a relatively narrow baffle, however I hesitate to advise on cheap woofers as you might ruin the high performance of the AN15. Sought of like adding vegemite to a nice chocolate milkshake - that could be scary.

I have stack of cheap MCM woofers arriving soon I can let you know what I think of them when they arrive.

What ever you do don't use Eminence Alpha.

At the moment the only woofers I would recommend are the GPA416 or another pair of Super 15 Cast Frame (but not cheap)
The problem is you might need 2 pairs as support like what I have. If the wings go deep enough you might be OK.

I have to go I will be back later

It would be nice given the price if a quartet of MCM woofers actually could make a good foundation under the AN15 so do let us know what you find.

It's shaping up nicely. This driver is a keeper, I recommend it so if you want to build something around it then go for it. Of course, how you use the driver is also important.

I'll post further updates into my thread as it evolves.

But I'm distracted right now building the Martello-2's whilst the climate allows me to work out on the driveway. And I have a trip to Europe soon and have to take them with me to deliver them to their final owner.
