    Lasse, Curt Campbell did a spherical design some years ago. You can read his write up here:

    Check this this thread (and others) out : http://www.htguide.com/forum/showthr...RS28a-RS225-MT

    Before you listen to folks saying the RS225 isn't good for a two way... It is possible, to make a great 2-way speaker w/the RS225-4.

    EDIT: Also, consider, perhaps, a waveguide for the RS28 tweeter, if building a 2-way w/8" woofer?

    The distance between the tweeter and mid, or woofer needs to be kept reasonably short. When they are too far apart, the response goes crazy on the vertical axis. If you use PCD, you can see this effect. When drivers are close, there is still a null vertically around 45 degrees. Spread them apart, and there may be multiple nulls.

    Actually, I can´t find any function in Xdir, adressing a "semi-spherical" baffle. Or am I missing someting here?

If you're curious, boot up XDir by Tolvan and see for yourself. Unless you're a long distance from the speakers you'll hear the tweeter and woofer sections separately. That last part is the biggest problem, as far as I'm concerned. If the lobes are small enough you might not hear them, but the separated bass and treble is bound to sound weird.

    Hi all,
    thanks for the write-up on the duets!

    I have read it and downloaded it on my Phone and on my computer
    I am confident that you are right in that this driver is Quite unsuitable for a low-order crossing at abt 1500-2000 Hz and I thank you all for explaining that to me. Without that, I Would have gone Down the wrong road.

    What I Will have to do now is to decide on What driver to choose and wonder of a paper 8” could work at 1500 Hz?

    Maybe a S/W glitch because it's my post. I don't see it in my original post right after Lasse started the topic.

    I'm not trying to push you to somewhere you don't want to go or toot my own horn, but the RS225-8 and RS28F-4 performed very well indeed in my RS duets, but a high-order crossover was necessary for obvious reasons. The drivers are crossed at 1400 Hz with quasi-8th order slopes, comfortably mitigating upper frequency resonances from the RS225 and preventing over-excursion of the RS28. The floor-standing enclosure has a gross volume of 1.6 ft3 (45 liters) tuned to 29 Hz and resulting in an f3 of 32 Hz. With this design there's no problem whatsoever with using an 8" woofer in a 2-way. Please do read my write-up that has been attached by Millstonemike if for no other reasons than to satisfy your curiosity while perhaps answering some of your questions.

    Hi,
    My latest post was a bit short so I elaborate on that a bit.

    The "thing" is that I have used Dayton woofers (RS225-8 and RS270-8) in 3-ways, crossed at abt 200-300 Hz, before and found them being very good indeed, and especially for the price.

    Now, I´m in the process of choosing a woofer for a 2-way, preferrally a 8" crossed around 1500-2000 Hz 2nd order (if possible taken the tweeter into consideration).

    I, admiitedly without much thinking, thought that the RS225 would be good but I think that you tell me that this driver has breakup modes and distortion if you let it go up to abt 2000 Hz, so:

    What do you suggest?
    • A steeper XO? 4th order?
    • A different driver, acceptable up to 2000 Hz?
    • In that case, which one?

    And finally:
    • Do you strongly advice against the "round-tweeter-housing" idea? (Is there any thoughts from anyone of you that actually has tested this idea?)

    What about considering a different Dayton woofer, perhaps the paper RS225P-8A

    I wouldn't use anything larger than the RS180 in a 2 way, lots of success with that one.

    so the RS225s are essetially unsuitable for traditional 2-ways with lower order XOs?( like 2nd order)
