I have at stable use a speaker with a 10" and a very little fullrange 2" with
7" waveguide ( ex-speaker ). The FR is very similar to the concave Tang Band,
it's made by Monacor .
The simple series crossover helps in stopping the woofer emitting from 1000 Hz
and the FR from not going over excursion

I believe the Dynaco A25 was a 10" 2 way.
Seas made the 10" until a couple of years ago IIRC.

Seems to me you need a wide range 10" and a tweeter that can cross low.

Good luck with your project.

Seems like a great compromise for low watt amp freaks and those not really interested in pure full range.
A great compromise, unless one cares about how the music sounds.

Then it's just compromised.

Or a wide range with a tweeter that can cross high, like a Fostex FF225wk + FT17h.

I use a Monacor SPX-20 , similar to the TB W2-784 SG, although the first choice was a phase plug equipped one such as the TB W2-803 because of the wave guide I intended to use to have some sensitivity gain at the crossover region...but the bumped surround introduces some irregularities .
So ,Monacor SPX-20 !

I designed these before I heard about the Tektons.

System Pictures & Description

Eminence 10" pro woofer, Ciare horn tweeter.

Excellent loudspeaker, precisely balanced. High sensitivity, 96 - 97dB.

I posted the design, but not much interest. Hearing would be believing though.

Which Eminence are you using? Just curious as I recently made some 12" and horn foldback boxes for my Son's band and was a bit shocked at how good they sounded.

Would be interested to try a high sensitivity 10" and horn, and Eminence drivers are available at reasonable prices here in OZ.

Regards,

I use a pair of Zu Essence speakers. These 10 inch full ranger/ribbon tweeter speakers have been out for several years, and build somewhat on the Zu Druids, which have been around for a long time.

This configuration, done sans crossover, has been around for a long time. Many, very differing opinions on how they sound.

Guess I am about as old as the folks that voiced them as they sound pretty good to me, and work well with my tubed PP amps. Looking to make a 300b amp and try the SET route next.

If I do anything different with speakers, it will be a GPA 604 based coax speaker.

But not all of the Tektons are like that. I have read that the Lores have lower crossover and the one pictured in my first post has to have a low xo as well.
