Default P-Audio in huge MLTL

Reading these posts of people doing Tannoy Autographs, Westminsters, etc. I got an idea of doing something simmilar but not in horn enclosure.
I found 2 interesting coaxials made by P-Audio:
BM12CXA
SN-12C

Has anyone heard these drivers? Are they worth trying?
My initial plan was to put them in MLTL
L=130cm
S0=SL=2.4Sd
r-port=8cm
Lport=4 cm

All criticsm appreciated

Hey Bas,

How about an update on your fabulous new speakers? Do you have drivers in them yet?

My apologies to this thread for the OT.

The SN- series was not too warmly received by Klang&Ton a while back iirc. I would recon anything with at least the BM-D440/450 tweeter on the back from P.Audio, though the 2" variants (BM-D750) have some issues on the very high end (the driver dives like a rock above 13kHz so EQ would be handy) though for stage monitor use they ahve the ability to rip your head off if called for.

Some musicians are a little deaf and like extremely loud monitors(mostly as a function of stage volume).

Not yet...I'm thinking of selling them back to the maker. Don't have the cash to make em happen in the foreseeable future.

Tannoys the nicest duel concentric I've ever heard.
My brief flurt with P.Audio's was a bit of a disapointment. Came up nicely when eq ed, they now belong to a travelling cinema in queensland and the dolby 1/3 octive eq is necessary.
Many P audio products are brillant, many are not!

Cameron,
could you tell me which P-audio drivers you used? on which part of response you had to apply eq?
Which P-audio drivers you find brilliant, and which you would avoid?
Thanks in advance

Don't do it Bas! That might be something you'd live to really regret. Why not put in some inexpensive (but not low quality)drivers in the meantime like from the Dayton line at PartsExpress?
