Show me a response with both drivers tested together. You may not need any xover.

Fooled around a bit with crossover points and found the best overall response with the woofer crossed 2nd order at 500 Hz. Seems I have a floor bounce or something at 500 and 250 hz...

Nice to see you again Defo! Long time So you couldn't stay away from horns? Are they the same horns you ordered long time ago? What drivers do you have? Is it OB in the bass?

I was going to suggest the same. Xover a la DYNACO.
The use of the horn might be forgiving for any problems with phase. Distance between horn/drivers is something to consider, so that a lower frequency xover vs on the upper side, might be beneficial.

You too Sannax! Havent gotten a chance to finish my speakers untill now...

The woofer is Seas A26RE4 (pdf in first post) and wideband is Scan-Speak 10F.

As of now the bass is OB but the back of the speaker will be enclosed in studio foam in the near future, so it will be kind of a hybrid between OB and aperiodic
