Default Help choosing Scanspeak

Hi! I have been using ProAc Response 2.5 clone some yrs ago and now I am looking for tweeter drivers for a new build.

I like the sound in Scanspeak but have heard of tweeters that are better and a size larger. What do you recommend for a step up there? I am looking for a soft touch to it and clean, not to harsh.

Thanks for advices.

did you build the clone with original D2010 tweeter or the version Troels had on his site?

Viper,

I would use SS 2905/930 000. Not overpriced and excellent.
Do you still own 2,5 clone ?

I did work with D2008 tweeter. One mean little beast.
Performs very well once the XO is right.

well, d2010 is not the ideal tweeter to cross to a 7" woofer. I don't see d2008 working well to a 7" either but 2905 should be excellent.

Ok the D2095/9300 perhaps is the way to go. I remember listening to them and they was really clean and soft. How is the "peer point" in those? The 2.5-Clone was just a big sound wall.

I am planning a complete new 3 way build. And working my way down. Would a Dayton Euro 7" be a good match?
Dayton Audio ES180-8 7" Euro Series Paper/Fiber Woofe | 295-350

I can say that i would like to have some "peer point" effect

This was my old pearls. Sold since a couple of years. Don't remember what the driver model number was tough

It comes down to your capability as a designer and time and money you want to invest.
For a 3 way build D2010 is fine. It depends more on what you are asking it to do.
If you crossing it to a small 3" mid around 3khz, it's just fine and dandy.
That Dayton/Usher driver is not available. Usher 8945A and couple of other drivers can be used.
Are you looking to design and build from scratch or build a kit? Whats the budget? How are your woodworking skills?
Scan makes a lot of drivers and there are a lot of possibilities.

I was planning to run my active filter/dsp and then to my amps. I run this calibration from the computer so a filter build is not needed.

The Dayton drivers i found on the second hand market

The weak spot will be the Dayton? It looks just like the one in the Response 2.5 clone
