I once did a speaker with a 15... 4 5 inch and 4 1 inch domes, it had crossed the 15 to the 5's and the 5's to the 1 inch, it was a 3 way... an mtm, uses 2 bid bass drivers, it is still a 2 way.

Exactly.The right way to do it

Dor really good bass, you'd still need multiple subwoofers placed to kill room modes.

It all does get kind of silly, doesn't it . . .

I will say that a subwoofer should probably never be co-located with the "rest of the system", though . . . the acoustics of it are just wrong. So I don't count the subwoofer in the number of "ways" in the "mains" . . .

A "subwoofer" is below the woofer, there not to be heard but to be "felt". A "supertweeter" is above the tweeter, not to be heard, but . . . uh . . . is there a mosquito in here ? ? ?

a lot of mis information on this thread, I'm not one to argue. I've not spent much time on this forum, but I've been building for 35 years, 30 years ago built for a living.
I try not to post as a know it all and as I posted earlier, I don't know folks around here... isn't someone known as a resident expert of sorts. Its obvious the threads that I've posted are ignored.

I have some of the Fostex planars, wish i had some of the Corals. I sold my Quad IIs (with 110v transdormers personally delivered by Ross Walker) to a friend who uses 3 pair in his system.

Lots of them. And even the real ones don't see eye to eye all the time.

Hi Dave, plenty of room for opinion for sure, but a lot of mis quotes that are not the facts. Simple stuff... it seems to me, we are here to help each other out, not prove what I know or you know.
