Default D15 or 2.5?

Has anyone tried the Proac D15 clone as seen here -

Response D15

Could anyone compare the tonality to that of the 2.5 clone?

It's my understanding the D15 has effectively replaced the 2.5 in Proac's commercial lineup. From what I've read it's gone some way to addressing some of the 2.5's tonal quirks (for lack of a better term!)

Any thoughts/comments?

Default Or something like it..???

I too have looked at this design.

Due to having an extra set of 36 ltr. cabinets from my 2.5 build I have been looking for a 6.5" to 7" mid/woofer and 1" tweeter design to work in this cabinet (ID = 7.5" x 9" x 38").

I do question the ability of the 8513 to blend with w17EX (w18) at such a high x-over point.

I like the idea of the Seas w18EX and the SS9500 tweeter to get the x-over low enough to blend corectly. Kind of a tweaked D15/2.5 blend, a little less bass with better detail and midrange.

As it looks I will be looking at these empty cabinets for awhile longer unless someone has a idea here ???????

Actually, I see the D25 is the exact 'replacement' for the 2.5...

I'd still like to hear from anyone who's tried the D15 clone though, the reviews of the production model are very favourable.
