Default Seas ER15RLY vs. Peerless HDS Nomex (830873)

Seas ER15RLY and Peerless HDS Nomex (830873) are both very good midwoofers and measures well. http://www.zaphaudio.com/5.5test/
(Thank you Zaph for your fantastic page!!!!)

But which one do you prefere??
I want to use one of them in a 2,5 way with active 4th order LR at ~3000k.

Tweeter will probably be Vifa XT19 or maybe Seas 19TFF1.

Hi,

On paper the Peerless is more suitable for a 2.5 way due to its response.

No. I meant the Peerless. A 0.5 way has 6dB of BSC by default. Work out the rest yourself .......

Thanks for the responce, right now its 50/50!
Since I'm going to use a an active filter I can adjust the LF responce if I want but I think the extra bass from the "0.5" will be enough (as sreten also wrote)
Since I haven't heard any of them I would be very happy to get some comments from someone who has!

Well, it is true in a passive speaker with a parallel 0,5.

Not exactly what you asked but to me the graphs look better on the Peerless. A little less distortion and flatter response graph then the SEAS.

Any comments are welcome!

I agree about the distortion and FR....but how about the CSD?
And does thease measurements tell us all about the sound??

Ok, not to start a flaming war in here but according to some, CSD doesn't show anything more then the THD and FR graphs already do. Just a different way of looking at the same data. I stopped looking at them completely but that is just me. It's also been said that once your x-over is installed, it will make both CSD graphs look similar, so I pay more attention to THD.

What I would be curious about is the difference in X-max. Granted in a MTM speaker x-max is less of an issue because you have double the woofers but 3.5mm to 5.0mmm is a big difference. Can anyone comment on that?

Just to add to the war THD and FR tells you little about the transient responce. Maybe if you add the phase responce that will be enough........

The difference in X-max is interesting....but peerless has lower LF THD at the level Zaph measured. Also, is larger X-max always good or does it effect the midrange? (http://www.zaphaudio.com/lowxmax.html)
