View Full Version : Selenium D220Ti
12-22-2008, 08:29 PM
I'm looking to put together a new center channel for my home theater and was looking at using the newer Selenium D220Ti on a B&C ME-10 short horn to cover from 3KHz up, without any additional tweeter. My mains use older Selenium D305Ti (2" throat) on HL14-50 conical horns and some old JBL 2402 bullets. I'm wondering how the smaller 1" exit Seleniums will compare to the drivers I use in my mains?

Well . .
The Selenium stuff is very good . . at least in my experience in PA cabs. Using high power compression drivers in a home HT environment seems a bit "Odd" to me, but if it works for you, that's great!
Without knowing a little more about your whole sound setup, it's hard to say, but I can't see a glaring reason a 220 in the center wouldn't match the 305's on the mains. Again, just a totally baseless opinion.

The Selenium 1" are better than average - for their price point. That is, better than what comes in a consumer PA cab. Not necessarily on par with 1" drivers costing in the $150 range, but for most semi-pro PA work they are fine. Not necessarily what I would choose for high output HT. The 2" are noticeably better. The D3300 2" has much better extension and 'air' than any of the 1". For adding 'air' to a high output home system, I'd lean toward using their old slot loaded super tweeters.
