Cool Efficient two way using compression tweeter

Has anyone considered using parts like these to build an efficient two way for home use? The frequency response on this new compression tweeter looks smooth. I want a bouncy, live sound that will rock the house. There are many 12 inch woofers to choose from that seem to be good choices. Or will this speaker sound rough and unlistenable? Crossover around 1200 to 1800khz. This would be about 99db per watt… Any thoughts?

How about giving this one a try? http://www.decware.com/newsite/mainmenu.htm Could be a pretty cool multi purpose set up; mains, monitors etc... Dave

The link is supposed to lead to the pro-sound cab in the speaker section

I was thinking of putting the drivers in a box, not open baffle. But basically yes, these types of drivers for home use and high eff. Are they too rough sounding or will they do justice to hi fidelity? I don't want to bother with 'bar mitzvah' speakers.

I believe they will work very well in home hi-fi systems. I am in the early stages of looking at them and doing something with my four Alpha 15A's on an OB or H frame and mated with other drivers one of which would be a compression driver and horn.

I have tried the 10" circular horn from PE and found it to be not very good.

I suggest you give the RCF H100 horn a look from Loudspeakers Plus(where you can download the spec.), costs $28 each. It suits my B&C DE250 very well the freq response is quite good no excessive bum or dips, you can get away without equalization.

H100 can be x-overed at 800Hz according to the manu. recommendation, I x-over mine around 1.7Khz.

My combo sounds quite good, I am still tweaking it.

My system is similar and not a clone of EP, CS2, Tweeter woofer, woofer(TWW) configuration. I am happy with this config., I have tried a few. It is worth a try.

cheers.

This woofer:

and this tweeter:

http://www.partsexpress.com/pe/showd...number=264-362

seem like they would make a nice combination.

Hi,
I am using an RCF CD1710MT3 1" on RCF H100 crossed over at 1200Hz to 8" Celestion Truvox 0818 and at 200Hz 2x KEF B139 in closed box for bass. Of course with a 12" this would be a nice 2-way.

Look at the Menhir by Monacor/Celestion 1" + 12" should be really nice: http://www.lautsprecherforum.com/forum/index.php?id=75 kit is right now for sale, by developer: http://www.hifi-forum.de/index.php?a...188&thread=665

Cheap 10" Koax by German Klang&ton Magazine?: http://www.lautsprecherforum.com/for...e=thread&id=95

regards, Micha
