Default Is it OK to have odd number of drivers in a single channel

Out of curiosity, are there any issues with setting up (for example) a 2-way with a tweeter and 3 midbass drivers or TMMM arrangement, as oppossed to a MMTMM or MTM arrangement?

Just curious, for satisfying impedance, sensitivity, box size and of course cost variables.


Thanks ~Andrew

If the impedance isn't too low when you wire the drivers together, I can't see why not. I've seen a few TMMM designs (I think).

As long as you have a reasonable impedence, the drivers are playing the right frequency spectrum(in other words crossed over properly), and the sensitivity is reasonably matched, then it should work out just fine

...and what is the relation between sensitivity and wiring of the drivers? How is the sensitivity affected by parallel or series wiring?
