  • High Efficiency 2 Way ???

    Can anyone recommend a High effciency 2 way tower type box project, 90-95 db 1w@1M, with F3 under 50Hz. The kits here are mostly low to mid efficiency. Just built C-Note, not a large room, but need 40 wpc to rock.

    DIYSoundGroup Apollo or other horn based kits on the same site. The tritrix MTM at PE with a sub is also a good low cost option.

      85 db is low efficiency. Tweeter is a wave guide not a horn

        85db is not low sensitivity, but on par with most 2way systems. And that is really what you are talking about here. Sensitivity and efficiency are 2 very different animals. Sensitivity is rated in dB where efficiency is rated as a percentage.

        A waveguide or horn based system is what you will need for that higher sensitivity. It comes at the cost of less bass extension. So a sub, or two is needed to get to that last octave or two.

              You might want to consider the Audaax PR240MO 95 dB. The Audax PR240M6-8 goes lower but is 92 dB efficient. You should be able to find a tweet that can hit 95 dB without much trouble but you will lose some efficiency on the woofer when you add in baffle step. Good luck.

                  Not necessarily. If you use a high sensitivity woofer in a direct radiating alignment you give up low frequency extension, but you can get around that by using two or more average sensitivity woofers. You just need to have an amp capable of handling the low impedance load that will result.

                    before so quick to dismiss (as a newcomer?) did you look at the HORN based systems I suggested?

                      Curt Campbell's Cobalt 8 MTM at diysg 94db, Celestion woofs, Scan Speak tweet. If you want a tower, you make it. I don't think diysg has any tower flat packs.

                      Several other diysg Home Theater kits up to 98db, see for yourself. Most diysg kits are 2 way.

                      The Apollo MTM is 88db, btw.

                      The little S2000 MTM is 91db.

                      Jeff Bagby designed Helix MTM 91db.

                          I just finished building the Cobalt-8 TM and MTM for my living room. I think they sound very good and the dynamics are incredible. I had horn loaded compression drivers before this paired with a Faital 6" woofer which was good but the tweeter in the Cobalt really sounds different I think it is more revealing. It may give up some sensitivity to the compression tweeters that are horn loaded but the MTM is 94 db which is good enough for me. I will say though they are not a full range speaker and you will definitely need a sub but that's part of the high efficiency design trade off.

                              Have you tried Fusion-8 woofer?
