    My 3 ways are long gone. I am almost certain the mids sounded wrong because I got the enclosure incorrect.

    Thanks guys, I don't have measurements from my first build. I took them, but I lost the data. Few years back now. Thanks for your time. I like the Troels design, so not a bad place to start. Maybe I can convince the wife some JBL array 1400's, 3900's or 4367's are a good idea. lol

    Looking at the freq charts, I thought the DE250 had a better response?!

    I selected the mids for their frequency response and low mms. My primary concern is to design a speaker which can produce micro detail. I don't listen to music super loud. Most of my listening sessions are around 80 max 95 SPL. I'm just after an engaging, dynamic and transparent listen. I would also prefer not to employ a sub bass section. 30hz extension is ample for me. I just want the speaker to sound full with excellent bass impact, agility and weight. Paul and yourself mention measuring of axis, why is this important? How does it interplay with the selected baffle size and crossover point? Cheers Steve

    Thanks for the advice Paul. I guess I'm not trying to emulate the sound as such. Although a speaker which sounded like the JBL 4367 would be quite an accomplishment. I would however like to achieve a large, dynamic, efficient transparent sound. I just love the look of the JBL monitor range.... Thanks I'll check out the waveguides you have mentioned. This gentlemen subjectively ranked the Faital Pro LTH102 quite highly. https://speakerprojects.wordpress.com/2017/08/29/bc-de250-8-compression-driver-in-various-waveguides/

    Thanks for the advice. I have already decided the mylar version is the way to go. I'm keen to give the de250 a go. It gets some fantastic reviews. I'll check out the drivers you have mentioned.

    Thanks. Yes I have seen that design. Looks great. Using a Troels design is a strategy I am considering.

    I didn't like the midrange result. Sounded very congested. Bass was also not as dynamic and extended as I would have liked.

    Hi there, I''m currently in the very early stages of building a 3 or possibly 4 way speaker. I have experience building an active 3 way previously, which didn't deliver the results I was looking for (First build and all) I made a number of rookie mistakes, which I don't want to repeat this time around. https://grizzlyaudio.blogspot.com/p/2ca-1251-active-dsp-12-inch-3-way-build.html So in an effort to achieve a fantastic result, I thought I would post my design idea here, in the hope that people with more knowledge and experience than me will provide some guidance and advice. Design goals: JBL ish big sound.... Series 4367 etc Good power handling Full range, bass bass down to 30hz in room, with good weight and control Cabinets must look nice Transparent with excellent detail retrieval Excellent imaging Not too big Great Efficiency Crossover will be pro DSP (Symetrix, QSC, BSS, Hypex) or analog active Drivers currently being considered: HF: DE250, 108db http://www.bcspeakers.com/en/products/hf-driver/1-0/8/de250 Flare: Faital LTH102 http://www.faitalpro.com/en/products/HF_Horns/product_details/index.php?id=903010110 Super tweeter? Not sure if this will be necessary, with the DE250.... The DE250 seems to offer the best HF extension I could find from a 1inch compression driver. MID: Faital 8FE200, Excellent response curve, and mms, great extension, circa 96/97dm through usable midrange. https://www.parts-express.com/pedocs/specs/294-1170-faitalpro-8fe200-4-specifications.pdf or B&C 8PE21, Nice response, more breakup after 2k, higher mms, 97db through usable midrange http://www.bcspeakers.com/en/products/lf-driver/8-0/8/8pe21 BASS: 15inch or 12 in a ported cabinet Looking for suggestions that aren't too expensive and are proven to work in smallish enclosures around 140 litres. Something easily accessible in AUS would be great. At this stage I'm seeking feedback on my driver and HF Flare selection. Any help with design would also be appreciated. Thanks in advance Steve
