Default Choice of driver for El Pipe-O

Can anyone provide info on selection of a driver for El Pipe-O ...

Edit: Oops, this should be in the Loudspeaker forum - reposted there - see Choice of driver for El Pipe-O

Maybe, but I noticed that El-Pipeo initially got more response
here than in Loudspeakers.

At least follow the criteria for TL speakers mentioned here I guess

And measure the height of your ceiling
Is that all there is?

Default Oldies But Goodies.

Just this weekend I pulled my old Kef transmission lines out of the garage and gave them a birthday. (amazing the things that get done when in the sin-bin).

These cabinets are 900mm high by 450w by 450 deep, with a B139 mounted in the top left corner, and multiple internal panels to give a folded path 3 times the height of the cabinet.

I am using a Dod 18dB line level crossover, feeding 100Hz and down to the TL's via a big Panasonic amp, and 100Hz up going to an Amcron D-150 MkII driving a pair of Kef 8" 2 ways mounted on top of the TL cabinets.
This combo is around 450W total I suppose, and works bigtime.
Nicwix, if you go to the trouble of making TL's, I expect that you will find the results very worthwhile.

Nelson - For pretty impressive bass, try a listen to the 8 minute version of Madonna's "Nothing Really Matters" after about 4 minutes in.
On my system, the couch massages the kidneys and blurs the vision.

I believe not to believe in any fixed belief system.
