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.
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.
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
Not too big
Crossover will be pro DSP (Symetrix, QSC, BSS, Hypex) or analog active
Drivers currently being considered:
Flare: Faital LTH102
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.
Faital 8FE200, Excellent response curve, and mms, great extension, circa 96/97dm through usable midrange.
or B&C 8PE21, Nice response, more breakup after 2k, higher mms, 97db through usable midrange
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
