I got the transducers (after quite a long waiting) and I can continue my project. The 18Sound coaxials look nice and I suppose (hope) the sound quality is OK. Does anyone have experience on these?

That's a really wierd looking driver... does the tweeter fire through the rear of the woofer???
Certainly an interesting solution, can't say I'm a big fan of the concept but it could be counter-intuitive (i.e. work a lot better than expected!)

I only have experience with a pair of 18 sound midbass drivers. They measure better than advertised. As far as the coaxial, usspeaker says it's a "outstanding sounding coaxial." I don't think you'll be dissapointed.

Looking forward to how this project turns out. I have a pair of ciare coax's looking for a permanent home.

Cute looking driver!

With the additional mid band gain your waveguide will provide (around 4 dB from 200-1000 Hz) the crossover will be "interesting".
Much easier to cross with DSP, as the upper midrange of the woofer has some pronounced frequency response peaks, and flattening out the mid range passively would require a lot of attenuation.

Apparently it is much easier than expected at least according to augerpro:

DSP would make it easier though, or going hybrid with passive crossovers but using DSP to fix the global response.

So you can take the CD off of the woofer with those?

Thanks for the comments! Yes, the driver is cute and the quality looks very good. I still have ambition to try passive Xover but if it is difficult then DSP or passive with DSP. I'll do the first trials during the weekend.
