Default PA midrange for HiFi 3way

I am building a new Active 3way loudspeakers. The woofer will be Beyma 12LX60V2 in 80l box tuned to 30Hz. I plan to use 18sound 6nd430 as midrange. There are 2 other options:
Beyma 605Nd or 6P200Fe

The inspiration is from
f3b
max

Do you have any experience with these midranges as High end home audio?

As tweeter there are 3 options:
Beyma TPL150
Seas DXT
SS 6600

Do you have any experience with these tweeters?

THX in advance

the 6nd and 6P200 are more alike.. the 605 is a completely different driver (shouldn't extend nearly as low as the other two and requires more from the midbass driver in the lower midrange).

Which design sounded better to you, the f3b or the max?

I have not heard them. Maybe next week there will be a possibility to compare them. There are lot of discussions about PA drivers in home audio however I never had a possibility to compare with hifi drivers.

I've used the B&C 6md38 and the 18sound and preferred the B&C tone. Both were used as midranges in the same system. The B&C was also easier to cross to the tweeter which was 2nd order at 3.5khz. It may have been the high crossover point as the B&C didn't beam as badly which I attributed to the shape of the cone.

It should be OK. I will use miniDSP crossover and will correct the freq.response from 45 Hz as it is done with F3B.

for a midrange at that price range you may want to look at PHL as well

im experienced with the beyma tweeter, if you have the money, go for it.
Take off the back and cross around 1.5k - 2k

For mids, the 6nd430 open baffle and cross before 2k. 24db/oct

I have the 6nd430 ready to go in a project combined with the beyma tweeter, but I have no experienced with them yet.

Good luck

I would use the 18 Sound 6ND410 or 6NMB420 as they are more suited for midrange use. I have used both and they sound very nice.

The 6ND430 is a great driver which I like to use as well.
