    Alright so before I take the plunge I'd like to get some opinions if I'm wasting my money or not....

    I really want to try an xt25 in a waveguide (possibly pellegrene acoustics if he's still doing them) paired with a dayton pa310-8 woofer. Vented preferably, but I'm not sure that'll work...

    Am I barking up the wrong tree? It won't have much amplifier power because of the tweeter, but it'll be cheap enough to make a few of them if it works.

    Otherwise I can go the selenium driver route, but I'd really like to keep it cheap... and use the xt25.

    Thanks all for your help, it's going to be a busy year!

    Cheers, Tom

      Not an xt25, but already in a wave guide: http://www.parts-express.com/peerles...-ohm--264-1386

        Hi Chris,

        Thanks for that! I'll have to look around and see how it compares. Zaph just kind of sold me on the xt25's. I've got some peerless 830883's in the closet from a failed car audio project that I'll probably pair with some xt25's to satisfy my need to use those tweeters.

        I've had some interest from this and have someone lined up for me to make them a selenium horn/deltalite or kappalite (pending a meeting next week) combo. I'll be running them active initially from my minidsp so I can do some testing before doing a crossover (can't get parts locally here).

        I've heard from Pellegrene Acoustics and they're not in business anymore unfortunately. So there goes that master plan!

        Thanks again Chris, I'll give a good research and see how they'll do.

        Cheers, Tom
