Rosso-6MW150D sealed enclosure size

The difference between tye BG60 and TG30 is mainly sensitivity. The BG60 Is more suitable due to the higher sensitivity. Both are great for the money and the THD figures are similar. Just dont cross too low, as 2nd order HD climbs fast going lower. This is a typical characteristic of ring radiators. Fortunately 2nd order HD is very pleasing to the ears as opposed to bad sounding 3rd order HD. I'd recommend running a WG to improve integration and further lower HD. The WG148 Visaton WG can be used here with little modifications, but there's an STL file out there for free download to print your own WG needing no modifications. Simply bolt it on and go.

The BG60 is available for $28 from Digikey. Thats a great price for the caliber of tweeter it can compete with.

Can I buy the WG instead of printing one of rather one thats already made since my prints a kinda rough also I found out my crossover is 2nd order
 
You know that universal crossovers don't work? If you are lucky your Chinese high end x-over will prevent the drivers from instant destruction.
Sound will be a random catstrophy. I know you don't want to know, but speaker building doesn't work the way you go. Sorry.

What do suggest I do I mean what’s making the crossover sound random it’s a 2nd order crossover for speakers my set where custom made to my specifications from the person who makes them on Alibaba just because you can buy the universal type doesn’t mean it had not had alterations to the filter circuits
Yes the off the shelf ones are different

The crossover I have is
tweeter 3.5khz to 20khz 2nd order
Midrange 500hz to 3.5khz
Woofer 500hz


Does anyone else agree my crossovers are wrong or am I wrong for my tower speakers or do I have to custom make them
 
I agree regarding the xover issue. The 6MW150D is a driver which will greatly benefit from at least one LCR notch at 4.3k in addition to the LP filter. You'll need to at least simulate the driver FR and impedance curve to get decent sounding results. "Universal" type off the shelf xovers are never going to get you close to full performance potential of the drivers you plan to use. At minimum you'll need some measurement system like REW, calibrated mic and a decent PC sound card with loopback function, or a contained solution like the DATS system.

That's the easiest, self contained system to use for most beginner designers. It does most things right and is capable enough for most projects. The only drawback it has is being a USB mic, it can't measure relative phase between multiple drivers. Thats a minor issue for most people IMO.

DATS is a USB mic based system. Something like a dual channel USB recording interface will do relative phase measurements and require a calibrated XLR based mic with a known CAL file and software such as REW. This isnt however as simple to use as the DATS.

Do you have a crossover in mind that would 100% work

And same with a XLR mic I did buy one of those mini calibrated mics from Dayton that plug in to your phone it come with a calibration file it was ok but not the best thing

Thank you for your help
Hopefully my 1st set of home made tower speakers will sound awesome can’t wait to finish it
 
I use the Audax TM1 and Earthworks M30 with Motu M6 interface. The M30 measures flat to just past 30k (used for tweeters) and TM1 for ground plane and LF. The TM1 exceeded my expectations, specifically when people commented it was supposedly not low noise enough. This isnt the case though. I paid $280 for the TM1 version with CAL file. Great mic.
