Default Looking for line array suggestions

Got the ich to build !

Looking for suggestions for line arrays for both HT and Music.

I`ve never built line arrays, but there always has to be a first time.

My intial thoughts are to mount them on the wall on both sides of the screen. I would go down 10 inches below the screen height. The 10 inches below the screen would also be used for the center channel.

This gives me a total height of 67'' to work with.

I would not to be wider then 12'' and keep the depth to a kept to minimum.

I would like a munimum low of 70 HZ

Anyone have any suggestions, of it will work, and of drivers?

Here's a pic to help

Here's mine. It was my first speaker project. Didn't start small. Just went for it. It'll do 40 hz easy and room enforcement takes over.
Don't need no center channel or a sub with these.


6 - PT2's per side @ 24.80 = 297.60

10 - 5 1/4 " Aluminum Woofers per side @ $12.55 = $251.00

Those look good RG

I`ve been looking at what Zaph has done.

See the pic below, I think they are just amasing!

I 've been looking at the Silver Flute W14 - 4 ohm,
along with the Yag 20 or the Dayton PT2.

I've been playing around a bit.

Here are a couple of options.

On the left side, the array with a 10'' powered sub under.

On the right, the array with a 10 '' powered sub beside.

Do you have any thought, comments?
