I think Faitals are fairly reasonably priced. You might find something here:

Looks like a plan. PD 15 at the bottom, Faital CD at the top. Horn TBD. That could work well.
I had been looking at the PDN.15SB40 Neodymium 15", but the ferrite has a lower FS and might work well. The Neo looks a little better up top, but without seeing distortion, who knows?

CPC sells the Faital 15FH500 for 161 incl. VAT when in stock, 210 for the 18. Or get better Faitals for the same cash and they appear to be in stock.

PD 15"s at work in Adam Audios big monitor. I guess one could do worse. Personally I really like my PDN15BR40s, but I'm not sure PD delivers neo-models any longer(?)

Cool!

JRKO - I'm a bit lost. Are you still doing 15+horn, or a 8-10" cone mid and tweeter?

Suppose the end result could look something like this:
M1 Speaker

Just without the $100 000 price tag. ;-)

In fact the horn looks a bit like a Beyma TD235 ground flush along the edges.

At least my suggestion would be a 3-way system where the woofer and mid crossed somewhere in the middle of eachs floorbounce-freq. (3-400Hz). For modest level listening I'd like to try something like Seas MCA15RCY + the DXT together with a good sounding 15" pro-woofer.

More money and more SPL: PHL mid/woofer and perhaps 18Sounds XT1086 horn with tbd CD.

Nobody said that it has to look exactly like that.
It was merely an example since the driver set up would be rather similar yet JRKO intends to spend about 2% or so of the M1s retail price.

Budgets are ment to be blown, aren't they? Yes, first lesson in the tour de audio would be someting like: If budget is final - buy hedaphones.

Secondly: One of the owners of M1 is the russian president Medvedev. I guess he don't have time to DIY.
(Roomsize is probably OK too...)
