    The Dayton Classic sounds real good, but sometimes a little too bright in the midrange area. Nice bass!
    The OSMTM sounds good, nice bass but is lacking somewhere in the mids, (I think)
    The 2 sets of speakers are almost there for my hearing.

    Question, from what I am hearing, I am looking for another three way speaker project. The Dayton project was just about right for my budget and skill level.
    Anybody know of any more 3 way DIY speakers?

    (and yes, 3-ways ARE pricey)

    He's done mostly 3-way designs.

    There are a lot of 3ways around. Part of it will depend on your budget. My intrepids are largeish 3 ways but most folks don't want something that big in their living room or have or want to spend that kind of money. The Inteepids have around $1100 or so just in parts. Then figure the cabinets are around another $300-400.

    I would highly recommend going to InDIYana this May and listen to some options if you could swing it, not sure how far that is from you though. That eliminates the barrier of not being able to hear some of the fantastic designs. If you can't swing that I know PE does a get together in OH as well, but don't know when that is.

    I've heard the Statement monitors (and the full size Statements) and they sound great. Although, I'm not entirely sure why you're set on a 3 way; I've also heard some phenomenal, well rounded sounding MTM and TM designs as well. Just saying, don't sell yourself short by not considering other options simply because it isn't a 3 way design. I haven't heard the ones you've already built, but there's a lot of great designs available out there.

    Why not give Paul's Sunflowers a whirl?

    Ive heard the statement monitors and finalists and am very impressed with them. They only get better with the mini's and full size statements.

    Statements (there are tons of 3-ways out there). You must have missed the "stickies" links at the head of this forum: Undefinition, Curt Campbell, Zaphaudio, Wolf, . . .
