Default which modern coaxial offer good sound possibilities?

which modern coaxials including lower priced examples offer a chance of getting really good vocal and cello reproduction ?

what diameters?, which xover schemes? which cabinet (including OB) types?

i would definateley recommend the new Hawthorne Audio 10" Coaxials, for $125 i think they were, they are great value and sound great on OB.

Seas offer a decent 7in version which should do OK in smaller rooms, or, if loaded into a pipe (or any other sort of) horn, larger spaces too.

What do you mean by rough?

The 15" has some ringing from it's stamped frame. I fixed that by damping the frame with duct sealer. The 10" doesn't suffer from that problem, it has a cast frame.

Other than that, the two drivers sound pretty similar.

(sounds a bit like a 15 guitar speaker)

to be fair, some of subjective part has something to do with 15" coax in general going to relatively high xover- got this cone on 54oz woofer: Beta15cx and its reminescent of Sp15B. my other Eminence coax are C15cx (2-flavor - Sp15A and smooth cone), C12cx, Beta 8-10-12cx

where does SI 10 have the better sound? is its price $150/ea?

considering ~27 for HF and probably more for the nice xover parts = a nice price and Beta 10cx could come close in price -wonder when they will add in "storefront"
