I wish I could buy two more of these bass drivers but they're nowhere to be found.

Next time you build, try to get the treble closer to the mid driver.
You can even trim a bit off the treble faceplate to get it closer still. 10mm cut off would be good.

The higher the crossover frequency, the more important the "closeness" becomes.

That's an interesting thing you bring up. While the photograph I produced has cheap cell phone lens distortion, the distance between the 2 drivers is 1cm.

However.

I have considered replacing the 4 inch Audax with a Morel 5 inch. I would like the increased power handling and a touch more bottom end from the larger driver. I am considering the Morel CAW 538.

I took all the posts that AllenB wrote and turned them into a PDF document so I could print it out to work through my crossover design. Here is a copy if anyone is interested.

That's excellent djn, there has been interest in a printable version. I should learn to make PDF documents this way.

Thank you.

Thanks Allen. I laid it out in MS Word, then saved it as a PDF. No need to have Adobe.

I saw "Word" in file properties.
I had not thought about using Word's pdf export.

I use it with contracts all the time. That way nothing can be changed by someone else but I can make changes to the word file then save it as a PDF again.
