Can I clarify, when we talk of Pro-Audio, are we referring only to PA (sorry, public address) or studio monitors aswell?

Because the first mind blowing pair of speakers I heard were the in-wall main studio monitors back at RG Jones recordings studios in wimbledon (now sadly closed), Which I would have described as 'Pro Audio'.

When I worked in a live music venue, we (myself and my sound engineers) would use the main PA system to listen to newly purchased, newly recorded, and favourite music. It was amazing, and although not true high-fidelity, I'm sure if we tweaked the system to a 'home use' type set-up, it would have easily achieved it.

I think that the whole discussion is questionable. Someone heard a speaker he refered as pro speaker to. Pro audio systems are tuned to have a linear frequencie response and can sometimes sound hard. Especialy when played loud.

Out of experience in designing speaker systems for professional use frequency response in the important range between 1 and 4 KHz decides about how good the system sounds with music playback.

2.5way, MMT with 2x8" plus tweeter, and a mono sub with 18" woofer

12" starts to narrow coverage from 800 Hz upwards. So need 3-way or very low x-over. 8" similar problems.

might be possible to combine a 10" and 8" in a 2.5way design
(with similar low end rolloff)
