    yes, the one linked.

I might just go with the ME45 and see how I go, I got DSP so perhaps Audiolense will flatten everything out anyway. But I can and have the possibility to measure and tweak if need be...

    Do you know much about the difference between the Deluxe LF and the Delite 12? I know the woofer drivers are different but curious if someone is experience in these speakers with requirements such as slam, transients and dynamics. (want all of these variables with as much as possible) Preferably in a closed box. From what I can deduce the 2512 driver is suited more for closed but there was a recommendation in the thread to just close the Deluxe LF if you had subs?

    Ill be honest, I can't seem to find information on the crossover point and sensitivity. I think the Deluxe LF is about 90db which isn't much, I really wanted higher.

    And lastly the DE250 comes in a titanium and a polymide which one do we use?

    I've scoured the pages just everything is all over the place and need some confirmation to start moving ahead with this goal. It seems like the most affordable constant directivity speaker with a compression driver and large woofer which is exactly what I want.







    I hate the sound of titanium, so I'd use the polyimide. I'd be a little wary of that 600Hz stuff. That horn is way too tiny for that. At a guess, a 1kHz crossover might be OK. Plus, I doubt your drivers will be happy at 600Hz.

    Crossover at around 600HZ that could come in handy....

    Would the B&C ME45 work well enough not to make any changes on the crossover?

    I'll experiment some with new compression drivers, but the Selenium and B&C are working out very well. Anyone still printing PC boards? I can't stop building. lol

    DIYSoundgroup has a Denovo DNA-150 CD that may work well, but will need a crossover redesign.

    The D220T is pretty inexpensive but there is a new and cheaper version that takes the same diaphragm assembly the D202Ti, personally I would be looking toward the CDX1-1446 for $1 more.

    I believe that all the tweeters are coupled with L-pads so that they can be adjusted to various woofers.
