Sreten,

For the Tarkus, would one be able to use a decent FR unit in the mid-tweet box?

Understand XO would need changes and probably dispersion would be affected.

Hi,

Why ? The mid driver is a great value driver, and there is no real advantage
to using a FR driver instead of a driver intended to be used with a tweeter.

Can be done, redesigning the x/o for other mid and treble drivers, but TBH
whats the point ? Both middle and treble drivers are excellent value IMO.

rgds, sreten.

Potential builder already has FR units in hand.

But the again, as the drivers are all great value, and better to execute according to the designers plan.

I saw Slayer once. I knew it was going to be a good show when fights were breaking out during sound check. The Black Daliha Murder/Cannible Corpse show was great. Sepultura was great before Max left. Never saw my favorite band Anthrax though...the only time in the last 25 years they have played in my area, my friends went and "forgot" to tell me they were going.

heavy metal speakers ? you need clean good articulated bass in the 40-200hz region , no shybass speakers/drivers ; clean midrange, no need to make it standout most recordings in the genre have plenty midrange action already ( guitars , snare drum) ; for tweeters choose a metal dome , metal ribbon, compression driver , no softdome tweeters

carefull with the midrange or it will sound terrible

Very interested to see how this project turns out.
Yes it is and all sold out here in OZ

I always thought Paul was loosing something by not using the 12 inch in the Tarkus but it is designed more for a sealed box and Paul likes to build ported I think

wow megadeth! Yeah thats metal for sure. Saw them at the wolfrun years ago, their PA sucked. Ruined a gig i was excited to be attending. Strangeley the sound of the warm up act (skindred? Or at least skin was in the name) was excellent.

I would love to hear Rob Rock's track Garden Of Chaos (from the album with the same name) on something like a set of Karlsons with some power behind them. That ought to get seriously interesting! It is rock, but the drumming from the intro...

Why Karlsons. Consider the following quote by GM:
