    Possibly. However, in my situation with a small room, and boundary reinforcement from the audio cabinet it will sit on, I don't think it will be an issue.

      How low the center channel needs to play? How about the surrounds?

        Honestly if you can get down to 80Hz with a CC or surround, you're doing just fine. Your sub can take over from there.

          perhaps a small cube like the SEAS kit?

              They looks decent enough and useable, even though the tweeters will have to be crossed a bit high.
              Don't waste your money on a new set of speakers, you get more mileage from a cheap pair of sneakers. Next phase, new wave, dance craze, anyways it's still rock and roll to me!

                I have a 3.3 Audyn on the tweet and the woofer full range in a .15cuft enclosure right now. Tweeter needs to be padded but not too bad. The woofer is decently smooth full range.

                  I'd really like to try the smaller ones as a small desktop setup, but it will have to wait a while. I'm excited to see what people do with these though.

                    For giggles, I did some renderings of 2 different box styles of the 4" Coax driver. One with a slot port and a simple box design, the other with tube ports, and some more flare to it.
                    For scale in the pictures, that is a 34" curved screen monitor.

                      Hi,
                      Thanks for this post I am always interested in building a pair of speakers using coaxial drivers. I have one question:

                      1. Is the x-cross between the tweeter and woofer built into the driver or the DIYer has to design his/her own x-cross to fit the drivers?

                      Thanks.

                        No crossover included, but there will be one available. Learned that today at MWAF.

                          Kole won a set of the new 4" Coaxials as a door prize at MWAF. This got the wheels spinning and it looks like I'll be competing again next year in the Open Unlimited Class. Gonna look at building another set of arrays using 10 or 12 of the new 4" Coax's. It will be interesting to see how good these drivers can be tamed with DSP. One difference for next years arrays, subs built in to the back of the cabs. Might as well utilize the dead space (several forum members questioned why I didn't on the first ones) and not have to ask for as much from the mid-woofers. Even with subs, the next set should have a smaller footprint. Had planned to take a break from building for a while, catch my breath so to speak, so much for that now. One thing for sure, the new design will implement as much of the KISS rule as possible, tired of complicated builds.

                            Cool. While reading this thread, I was thinking that PE should supply a schematic for a crossover.

                            I assume, there would be one "ideal" crossover that would work with whatever enclosure people want to make (since the drivers are always going to be the same)...is that correct? Or would there be a reason for different crossovers?

                              The crossover would work ok for most enclosures. The biggest variable would be in the baffle width and the intended location (desktop, close to a wall, etc) which may effect the amount of bsc needed.

                                I was thinking about you saying this today, and I think the CTC spacing on the tweeters is going to create some major problems. Just my .02. I think it would look freakin' awesome though.
