Default High Power Coax designs??

I am looking for some Coax drivers for stage P.A. monitor use. something that sounds good and is clean through the crossover area.

These need to handle high SPL's with ease. they will be limited to maybe 50-60hz on the low end and dont need to go above 10-15K.

I have been looking at the eminence coax drivers but the crossover point to there suggested "super" tweeter seems a bit high at 3.5K for a 12" woofer to get up to easily.

I need some low end and most P.A. woofers seem to be pretty shy on the bottom. so a 12 or 15" coax is going to have to do the trick.

A 15" would be my first pick the get the lowend but then i am concerned about what it can do at the top end before the horn kicks in. so maybe a 12" is a better way to go?

it might be possible to do a 10" coax with a 10" woofer. but then the cost and the weight goes way up....



Anyone have any suggestions?

I just picked up a pair of these. Unfortunately I can't tell what they sound like as I haven't played with them yet.

PA drivers often need an EQ anyway so I wouldn't worry too much how balanced the sound is.

They need an XO.

Check the coax from B&C (http://www.bcspeakers.com/), they have good response curve and low distortion, and some models have a low crossover point.

Best regards

One of the BMS drivers, or one of these.
