Great thank you. I spent another bunch of time looking for the tweeter frd. I have been on the fence but I will order the nextels. It looks like I do not need any additional components. not sure how to add the delay. thank you again I really appreciate your help.

I ran the sim and you are right on better line with less components.

Ok I have decided to try the Nextel drivers and make the reductions.changes the crossover. I have to give a thumbs up to Chris at Solen.ca. When I noticed the problem I contacted him along with Seas and Chris has be exceptional to work with. He contacted Seas several times with my complaints. He came up with an alternative nextel driver at a great price and even helped with alternative cabinet designs. In my opinion he has gone above and beyond. He has been quick to respond and supportive with all my whining. Thanks Chris

sorry I have to stay away from the Magnesium cones. I live too close to the ocean. I already ordered the Nextel drivers. Less crossover cannot be too bad. and it is I will build something else.

thank you for your help. I have a couple of questions. In the cross over the tweeter and woofer are powered separately will the removal of R2, R3 and C4 put the tweeter at risk of damage? Will moving the woofers out so there is .5" distance between the tweeter and woofer voice coil hurt anything and give the desired delay? - closer to time aligned. thank you Ben

Hi,

Removing the designated parts will not put the tweeter under more strain, it will only make it louder because both of the new woofers are louder than the old ones. Adding the delay was meant only for the XSim to try simulating it a little better. The phase compensation/delay (asymmetrical filters) is already within the crossover. There is no need to change how woofers are built into the baffle.
You are welcome!
