Default B&C DE25 or DE250 or Beyma 380CP? What to choose!

Could anyone help me decide on one of these drivers? I can get the DE25 and Beyma local, not the DE250. But im still uncertain. They are to be crossed at 1,9 khz 24 db LR.

Is impedance peaks anything to be worried about?

I have all three: the 25 in my Unity's, the 250 in the sides and the 380M in some small FOH speakers. All should be fine from 1k9+ with an LR24, but it will depend on the horn and it's loading.

Then I bring you the vast question; which one sounds best? And which one is the easiest to cross over to Seas W22 magnesium?

The horn is 18sound XT1086.

I don't use the Seas, so how should I know?

But you DO know about the compression drivers...!

With the question about the Seas, I was aiming more at which of the compression drivers is easiest to deal with in an active crossover with the different impedance curves in mind.

They are all excellent drivers. The rest is preference.

An active XO makes the driver Z fairly irrelevant.
