I now use the PRV 5MR450 with the Beyma in a Baffleless line array design
I found the Beyma a bit light in the mid-bass region but better in the treble. Now have the best of both designs

Nice! Must sound amazing. Watch out for those high SPLís with this setup. Easily 105dB/watt

No, TS parameters are too different. Mostly Fs, Qts, Vas are too far off,

Hey guys, how are these drivers with "complex" music? I've heard full-range drivers that just fall apart with anything other than simple acoustical material.

Thanks,
Jim

They play complex genres very well when used in a FAST - with a woofer for stuff below 300Hz. Great with speed metal or orchestral symphonies. Their high sensitivity means that very low cone excursions are needed and hence distortion is very low and music is not muddied.

I listen to a lot of progressive metal, Fusion and contemporary classical music. Using the FAST approach works really well
Because they are not trying to do deep bass means the drivers are not working as hard, leading to a very fast punchy sound that manages to do complex music justice.

Thanks guys!!

Are you filtering out the lower frequencies at all? The stuff below 160hz?

I do not bother myself
My friend used to cut off about 150 but no longer as he has gone line array with the PRV drivers
I think if you are in a position to experiment easily then give it a go
