I'm no expert, GM is the man you wanna talk to, but a K15 with a pair of Altec/GPA 515 might just be what you want. Not that difficult. But speak to GM.

Deon

Well, I hope GM may express an opinion here.

Altecs and GPA's may be relatively common in the USA but they are all but unavailable in OZ and their weight makes overseas shipment unviable. I know there are Eminence based Karlson designs but the 'results unknown' factor is too great for me to take a chance with someone elses money.

Don't misunderstand, I really appreciate your idea. In a year, when I have some Karlson under the belt, I may be more willing to take a punt. I hope you are around with your suggestions then!

Kind regards,

I would slightly disagree. Complex metal of the scandinavian variety can be played perfectly well on a well designed 2 way. If you need deafening volumes and really want to feel the double kick then a 2way will run out of steam.

Not up on modern Metal but I remember recordings with a lot of Ambience and dynamic compression so I'd be thinking of a system that is smooth through the midrange and dosent become shouty and stays balanced with high volume..

Just my 2 cents, Joel

Wouldn't do any good either. Music is distortion.

I cant think of a serious metalhead who would be happy with a dome midrange and a planar. Would be good for some kinds of music, but go crank some Nile through it and see how happy it makes you.

And no, metal doesn't contain harpsicord or violins ...or keyboards.

I'd lean towards a 12"+horn 2 way or a 15"+6-8"+treble horn depending on budget and requirements myself and seriously consider going active.

Beyma has some good looking new (at least to me) drivers which are cheap here but some cost more than double on US sites.

Certainly depends on what type of metal you refer to. Doom and folk metal use strings and keyboard a lot. A large chorus is also common on doom metal records.

Btw, my username is taken from Danish doom metal legends Saturnus.
