    Based on the appearance, it's a custom unit or a Faital.

    I'm positive it is a state-of-the-art Radio Shack midbass. It's the only possible explanation as to why they sound so good.

    I would like to add some suggestions to the list of 8" drivers that might also be suitable:
    BEYMA 8BXN coaxial <---look at the stupid low distortion between 200Hz to about 2kHz.
    BEYMA 8M70V2, also very low distortion

    Anyone have any idea if a 3 way studio monitor makes sense or is too much? If so do you have any driver recommendations for 2 or 3 way?

    A MiniDSP would do what you want for an awful lot less money. The "HD" models have the processing power to use FIR filters with no phase shift, if you're into that sort of thing.

    Would a small format 3 way monitor be difficult to design and build? I would spend a little more to make it 3 way if it made sense...

    Who makes a MiniDSP? Are they rack mountable?

    Would it make more sense to get a Protea unit (similar to a DBX drive rack, but more analog sounding)?

    Focal is very good at marketing.

    How would you build something like this:
    https://www.sweetwater.com/store/det...studio-monitor

    That what be an awesome studio monitor, but it is not worth that kind of money to me. What components would you use to build something equivalent?
