Default Opinions on Pairing Satori MW19PNW-8/AMTPRO-4?

Hey There!
I just purchased a couple of AMTPRO-4s on sale from Parts Express and I'm looking for drivers to pair them with. My thought is a two-way with the Satori MW19PNW to keep it simple. Crossover would be an LR2@1500hz on both the low pass and hi pass.


Would this be a good pairing? Is 1500hz too low? Too high? The MW19PNW dips about 2db around 1200hz. Does that rule out this pair? Or, would I need a different x-over point, or can I work with the dip electrically to smooth it out?


Thanks in advance

Look at the on-axis and 30 deg horizontally FR of the amtpro-4 tweeter. I'd cross this tweeter earliest at 2.5 kHz.

It does look like that from the FRD/ZMA files Parts Express provides for the AMTPRO-4. Comments on their website indicate that these are being used down to 1500hz, although further comments do suggest 2K-2.5K.


So, if I had to set my x-over point to 2K-2.5K, would you think this Satori driver could handle it, or is there a different 8" high-end-ish driver you know is capable of being crossed at those points?

And how does this dayton sound like a midrange or like a twitter spooky?
Can you record the sound to hear how it sounds?
I also look at him.

Hi, the satori is good for it even though it may need a little more complicated filter as the simulatation illustrates.

I appreciate your help. I think then I will take a chance on that driver. I will use OmniMic and DATS to measure the drivers before building anything, however how did you do your simulation? Do you happen to have FRD/ZMA files for that Satori to share?

The Satori is great upwards. Try to find if there is a frequency where both drivers have the same dispersion pattern at 30 and 60 deg. Above 2k.

You can have these traced from a spec sheet and assumed on a baffle 22x45 cm. Vented box tuned to manufacturer's suggestion.

Thanks for that link. I ran across a similar design on the Part-Express forums here: Bamboozled - Techtalk Speaker Building, Audio, Video Discussion Forum.
