Those 10" speakers are mid range units. I used to design and build equipment for 1 man bands and used 10" Zomax speakers as midrange units coupled with 15" Zomax speakers and Sammi bullet tweaters using a three-way secord order filters from my hi-fi speaker designs. They were awesome and rattled the foundations.

As balerit said 2 (good PA) mid range drivers can work out after you decide on your design and after you answer what sreten asked you?!
Stereo or mono? Read his question. Also what size/type/application of speaker you r looking for.
They are good for a 3-Way stereo or for a 2-Way in a stereo + sub mode.

Hi,

The 5 pin DIN input could be mono or stereo.

You say the speakers are active, one thing certain is its powered.

If the crossover is active, there will be more than one power amplifier.
Two for a mono speaker, and 3 for mono bass, stereo midrange.

For stereo two tweeters are needed, for mono one might be better.

The baffle driver layout would be useful to advise the tweeter placement.

rgds, sreten.

Hi, Sorry once again for the late reply. So after waiting almost 10 days for my DIN to phono converter lead, it transpires that the input is infact an XLR 5 pin, so would i be right in assuming that answers the stereo or mono question? Seeing as from what ive read the XLR5 is used for a ''balanced stereo signal''? Ive composed a rough sketch of the speaker cabinet, im afraid its not quite perfectly to scale, sketchup 8 isnt quite as easy to use as i thought, the dimensions are H:920mm W:550mm D460mm. As for the crossovers, everything is contained on a single circuit board and theres a lot of stuff on there, most of it looks completely alien to me, Perhaps if i try and post a few pictures here would that possibly be any help?? Thanks again
Elroy

Then you have:

1 cabinet
1 woofer
2 midranges
0 tweeters
4 amplifiers
0 crossovers

Does each midrange have its own housing in the box and is there maybe a capacitor connected to them?

Hi,

You appear to have :

Stereo bridged "XLR" input, in a very non standard DIN socket.
(Edit : no that is not right, one screened lead is missing. Its quite
possible all the active crossover stuff precedes the DIN input)

4 chips amps, 2 probably for mids, 2 probably bridged for bass.

But if that true the baffle layout doesn't make a lot of sense.

(Edit : Common sense investigation on your part is needed.)

rdgs, sreten.
