Well, he might be making the tweeter.... that's pretty exotic.

One last time and I'll shut up...it seems that you are driven by gettng the highest SPL efficiency instead of the best sound quality. Then you want to pump hundreds to thousands of watts into these very high efficiency speakers. A 100 db/watt speaker allows the use of sweet sounding low wattage Class A amplifiers.

If my spec sheet is correct for the Pro Sound PR17: I have not seen it selected in the forums as the best sounding midrange, it will beami over 2Khz, and with just 0.5mm Xmax it will move very little air even at 300Hz to get over 100db SPL per driver in a monopole. It looks like it is designed for horns.

Some 3-way linesource designers try to take advantage of the extra midrange displacement in n-drivers to cover as much of the 80-3,000 Hz human vocal range as possible. There are 5-5.5" speakers with linear motors that can cover this range

He is Feandil and only wants to build something silly to try to rip someone off on Ebay with high power handling numbers to claim.

Well,
we all know now that Mcintosh was heavily involved with the last project. This one smells of Infinity. Arnie Nudell himself perhaps?
The world (and Ebay) anxiously awaits....

When i used these for PA i did horn load them... got away with 2/side (and a Bryston 4B driving them). Used from 300-1.5k.

I told you not to post these ideas on the forum because most
people don't undestand the design concepts.. Told you, look at the silly
replies you got. Keep these ideas private

hmmm... I plan to keep these.... hence my dream arrays


only linesource has produced some actual help.


anyone want to explain what is a letdown about this???

I'm using a midrange that is flat at 300 hz to 2 khz... and is noted for awesome SQ

I'm using the TD15X lambda which also is renowned for amazing SQ

and I'm using a DIY ribbon........

I seriously was looking for input... but since linesource is the only one with knowledge I'll go somewhere else

Linesource: It's not so much the high efficency... I just have the midrange and midbass picked out so I need high efficency to keep up... many people hear are in love with the PR17's sound... not it's efficency...

I'm not too interested in some isoteric Class A's cause I don't know if the money justifies the benefit... I will be finding out soon as I ordered a $3000 N.E.W Class A dual channel mono design amp... Early tests show know audible difference on the test speakers between that and the QSC 2450...
I'm going to do some tests where I isolate the tweeter out so it will be easier to hear sonic differences... but as of yet I'm totally unimpressed with the uber expensive class A

You have some significant design flaws and since we'd be skipping the Ebay commission, I'll assist in the design for the bargain fee of only $999 and shipping is free anywhere in the world. For a limited time, I will include a set of plans for a compact bass horn array absolutely free. Why go ported when you can get more bass output with a smaller cab using more economical drivers using a bass horn array ?
why would you horn load a Lambda????

that's like horn loading a JL W7 or something... it would destroy it's amazing SQ

Well, one thing people mentioned was not to bother getting superhigh power amps, so thats useful information. Also, that the drivers you are interested in aren't easily available/or are unavailable. This is also usable info. Some of the other comments are opinion, and that's always a variable and shows that there isn't unaminity, so at least shows that maybe some more study is a good idea. Take your time on the design. That's also part of the fun- considering different ideas and thinking aboout them.

The rest is because of the feandil link not too clever...

I wouldn't. I'd use something much smaller and more economical.
