I've been holding off till preamp, and GM70 amp, are done. I'm listening to the pre and hopefully will be listening to the GM70 in a week or two. I didn't want to fool around with drivers until I knew I had the final electronics in place. I've got the dds horns and a pair of Radian 475 PB's sitting on a shelf.
Generally, to me compression drivers sound a little hard or brittle in the home environment - However, I am counting on the wide dispersion charactistics of the horns and the polyester diaphragm to take that edge off - along with the tube electronics.
If you get them, send me an e-mail and let me know how they sound. If they sound good to you and my setup eventually works out as planned, I may see if it would work out to have you help me pick up a pair of the CP385nd's
No longer powered by Linux - not enough apps and cross platform integration - but maybe one day

Well the most important thing first is budget!
If you on a low budget get the Eminence PSD2002 1.5khz-20khz,phenolic comp driver from www.bkelec.com for £45 inc vat for the driver then £22 for the flare
Or if u got plenty to spend get the B&C DE16 titanium comp driver 1.5khz-18khz, £76 from www.allangordon.co.uk
Well the most helpful PA knowledge and advice will be from Rog Mogale www.speakerplans.com ask him on the forum for any further advice about what flare to get for the comp driver and what x over point ,etc.
But remember with compression drivers the higher u cross them over--- the higher power they handle!
P.S :Bullet tweeters are super tweeters and are mostly crossover above at 5khz-6khz and the piezo rubbish is only ok if crossed over at 8-10khz!
