Default What do you think?

Hey

I may want to make cheap (only because the drivers are) High end speaker

the speakers involved are pioneer 3 way 10" coaxial car speakers, I cant find any specs except that they can take 100 watts rms each

I have heard that having all the acoustic centers the same will give awesome image so I plan to buy 2 pairs so there are 2 coaxials in each floorstander

I have more info but before I unleash it all I just wanna know is this acceptable?

Thanks

Two seperate drivers per speaker will negate the "awesome image" of a coaxial. You could, however, put the second pair on the backs of the cabs and make bipoles.

As far as car drivers being acceptable, only you have to listen to them. So, if you can accept them, then that's all that matters.

Coaxial car speakers do not have the acoustic centres aligned. Ok if you look from the front, but look from the top. In fact these are guaranteed not to be aligned unless you electrically delay the highs. At least with separates, you can tilt the cabinet to suit your listening position.

P.S. they may still sound good though

Here is a bipole speaker design:

There are a few others on the site if you search around. These and dipole/open baffle designs, also on the site, will work well if you have enough room, as they need to be placed some distance from your walls.
