Driver for vocal
 
Hi!

I am searching for a driver with a frequency response between 1-6 kHz.
Is this possible with regulars or should i go for horns?

The idea is to have a upper voice range free from a x-over. Above I'm planning a slot tweeter. And for the low I already have a suitable driver.

The listening distance will be ~3,5m / 140 inches. And the price up to ~90$ /each, new or used.

Thanks for any tips!

I'll try to get the ball rolling here?

Sounds like a candidate for a full/wide range drive unit?

I've heard good things about the Fountek FR88-EX.

I've seen some people use 8" paper cone units (Lowther) as their ultimate midrangers but not sure what you'd get for $90 each in Europe?

Keep an eye out for a pair of used 2" compression drivers. They can handle that critical rage fairly easy and can go as low as 500hz. Add a horn ( new or used ) from Autotech when you can and you will be off to a very nice start. You would have high efficiency and dynamics that cone drivers wish they had. Sometimes it pays to buy right and cry once !!!!! Another excellent driver, but not cheap is the Beyma TPL150 ( check ebay). Good luck.

Thanks for the advice. Reading around some I find this similar driver that seems to be a step up, but it comes with two different magnets.

Anyone know which one is the better? The spec are some different

Those 3" cone drivers with tiny voice coils simply are not capable to produce the SPL required in home audio (>100 dB). A 2" midrange dome easily does and is perfectly suited. :)

A few modest cost 1" compression drivers(DE250) on modest size horns/waveguides (SEOS15) get good reviews covering 1Khz-18Khz with well controlled directivity.

Geddes has a paper on the value of controlled directivity speakers on his website which could change your design direction for the better. Geddes uses the B&C DE500 1" compression driver crossed at 1Khz - 18Khz on his well reviewed 15" Summa speaker.

1 to 6 kHz, looks like a job for dome mid
you have not specified sensitivity you need and wattage
