Every hobby costs money. If you play golf, it's comparable with a new set of golf clubs.

At the same time it gives me a reason to sell some of the drivers I have on the shelf.

about £700 or $1090USD per pair.

Did you not sell this to the other 'arf (she who must be obeyed six months later witnessing speaker to end all ...mk II = ) as an attempt to produce your speaker to end all speakers, to end the madness?
Accuton not cheap either.

Ok, that's about 2 times the price of the ScanSpeak midrange.....

No, she knows that I will never give up my hobby, but she's tired of me having 3 sets of stand-mount speakers + sub in the living room

Troels Seas CNO2.5 Cost no Object. It uses Seas top of the line drivers and would sound ridiculous and look good as well. Also, this design looks interesting.

THe TL bass could be really nice sounding with such a nice driver.

Thanks for your comments. Iíve built endless of stand-mounts + subs. I want to build a true 3-way speaker here.

Iím sure that Mark K's ER18DXT is a nice speaker, but I donít think these drivers are in the same league as the ScanSpeak;s. Iím a big fan of SEAS drivers and I have personal experience in several designs with both the ER18 and the DXT tweeter. Iīm currently using the ER18 in a reference build around Zaphs SR71. Iím using the SR71 to benchmark my own design against and itís a nice design, but not exceptional.

Likewise have I used the DXT tweeter in several, both active and passive designs and itís a nice unique driver and is quite hard to work with, but it measures like a dream. However I think there a lot of other dome tweeters that subjectively sounds better like e.g. Dayton RS28F-4 and ScanSpeak D2608/913000 (HDS), but of course thatís my personal taste and opinion.

Regards

What 3-way is not a 2-way with another driver on the bottom?

The paper version is tested on Zaph's 8 inch driver roundup.. nothing special.

The smaller Raal is a super tweeter.. for use above 6 kHz IMO.

The larger Raal in amorphous core transformer version is pretty much the tweeter to beat for a standard 3 way.

The Scanspeak 12MU8731T-00 looks excellent.

Zaph|Audio

For bass I'd recommend something a little different - the Lambda Series Dipole10 (..in a sealed cabinet about 3.5 cubic feet, NOT dipole - one driver per side). One 8 ohm coil integrated into the overall loudspeaker, the other 8 ohm coil for active bass gain for baffle-step loss, cabinet losses, and eq. for the modal region.

AE Speakers --- Superb Quality, Unforgettable Performance, Definitely.

Perhaps in an Avalon aesthetic..

Hi,
since Respons Grand IMHO is about as good as i gets when it comes to speakers in boxes I would go for something similar. Maybe with one of the RAAL's instead if you want to try a ribbon. You can't go wrong with SS.

The SS Revelator bass have tremendous impact and detail for a 10" driver. Very low distortion too.
