what would your design be if you didn't have to worrie about fr. response?

I have a behringer 8024 which I have to say is one of the best peices I have ever spent my money on. When used on just about any system in a room with some sound absorbtion/diffraction it makes a world of difference. I was wondering what would your guys' design goals be for a speaker if you didn't have to worry about the frequency response? Would you worry about driver distortion? transient response?

I think you're looking at this the wrong way - please don't be offended but can I offer my reasons as to why I wouldn't do what you are suggesting?

Equalisation is a great thing but like everything it has it downsides. I think its a much better idea to get a design well sorted as a whole, including the FR, adding minimal EQ at this point can offer benefits regarding room correction but a brute force EQ approach to mask a weak speaker design is like trying to hide a rickity floor board with a rug. Best to replace the floorboard and then add that rug as a finishing touch.
