PMSL the other half did her pieces when she saw the size of the boxes I wanted for the Volts (BM220.8s which I was going to partner with some Fountec CD3neo ribbons) in the livingroom, those ATCs would really warrant 12" radials as bass units IMHO and that would involve a seperation I think!

I have just ordered a pair of the BM251.4s as I wanted a pair of high efficiency drivers for another project the ATCs would be ideal though, decisions decisions. The scan would go nice with my C-quenzes too as small wife acceptable stand mounts.

I've worked with Volt drivers in the past, excellent manufacturer.

I've used the 10" B2500.1 and the 15" Radial R3863. The only bass mid I've used is the BM220.8.

I only had my first experience of ATC drivers in April this year so I'm a relative newcomer to ATC and already have owned the SM75-150 & now the SM75-150S dome midranges. I recently bought a pair of SB75-234 SC that are phenominal drivers and then I bought the PA75-234 STD that I have on here. The fact that I've owned quite a few in a short space of time suggest that I absolutely love them

Personally from my experience with the Volts vs. the ATC's its easy for me to say without question which one of the two manufacturers makes the best drivers

We have SCM 20ASL, SCM100A and SCM100ASLs here at work so I'm very familiar with ATCs, my only worry was if the PA based drivers have the same kind of sound as the studio based drivers.

Yes the overall sound is similar but with the obvious benefit of the greater sensitivity, 98dB vs. 86dB for the 9" PA and SB drivers respectively. To be fair the studio stuff is lower reaching and seems to have that bit more absolute insight and quality, when you engineer these features in sensitivity does suffer.

From what I've heard of the PA I like the high efficiency sound very much. Everything feels effortless and you can really crank them to quite obscene levels that not even my ATC studio drivers in the Perceive speakers can handle.

I'd keep them myself but its likely I'm getting out of the DIY malarky for a while now that I've finished these. I just don't feel the need to build anything else. These drivers were destined for a center channel but TBH the Perceive's sound better than anything I've had before in 'phantom' mode and the timbre and voicing remains consistant this way.
