    I used the old rs28a and a seos8 WG with the RS270P-4. The dayton 10" really does replicate drums quite nicely. thread link https://diy.midwestaudio.club/discus...-thread#latest

        DA32 Tweeter can do 1.2khz. Would be a great choice for a 10". I remember all the pooh-poohing of 8" 2ways 10yrs ago - now it's become less 'controversial'. Why have all these low crossing tweeters that are bragged about - wavecore blah blah blah - if we don't use 'em. I say go for it. Why the hell not.

          ESS had a nice 2 way with 10 inch woofer that was kind of impressive, but no, I don't miss anything of that era.

            My 10" 2-way both measures, and sounds good. I didn't build it for any nostalgic reason. Mostly I wanted to see how I liked it. I like it as much as any 6.5" I've built that costs about the same. More expensive speakers should be capable of better sound, so adding a mid should be an improvement, but could add $100 / speaker. Using a cheaper woofer and mid for the same total cost as my 2-way probably would not be a significant improvement.

              Did you ever post the final details for this design?

                No, I didn't. There didn't seem to be much interest really, and up until a few weeks ago, the x-over was much more complex. I think it was 14 or 15 parts, some of which were large coils used to make narrow notches in the woofer response. I was hesitant to spend $100 for a second rs270p, when I have so many drivers sitting collecting dust, and the x-over looked like it would be a lot of work to assemble in a permanent fashion. When I simplified the x-over, and then saw the driver on sale, it was a hard decision, but I decided to go with a 6.5" design. The ten may get built as a center, or maybe someday as a pair if I get the urge.

                  Ed Rosenquist is going to build a cabinet like what he brought to Grand Rapids but it will be hosting the TD10S instead of the TD8S, crossing to the TLabs Magnesium dome in that 1.5" deep, 8" diameter guide. I am SOOOOO looking forward to this one. They will probably just stay in my living room for good!

                  The TPL150H and TD10M pairing makes for a killer monitor, but it still needs a sub for best sound. And while I LOVE the TPL150, the vertical directivity is off putting to me. You must be at the same level as the tweeter or you lose the top octave very quickly. The character changes dramatically between seated and standing at typical listening distances. The dome in a guide will alleviate that obstacle, and the TLabs domes are amazingly transparent.

                  I really liked seeing that coaxial 10" project. Fantastic ingenuity on display.

                      I believe they're still making the existing lineup of tweeters.

                      Here's what will become a 10" 2-way instead of an 8" 2-way. Corian baffle, 1.5" thick with an 8" diameter guide, 1" throat, circular arc profile tangent at the guide edge.

                        I sure hope they are at another DIY event, the original speakers sounded so good in Grand Rapids!!
