I wonder how the 15" Eminense Deltalite woofer used in the Fusion-15 compares to the JBL-2226 used instead of the Eminense?

I have all of the parts to build a 2-way active version of the Fusion-15 with the JBL-2226 instead of the Eminense Deltalite.

All I need to complete this project is another iNuke1000dsp (I purchased two but one was DOA with no warranty off craigslist) and to figure out how to setup the active filters. The thing that sucks is that I am broke with barely enough money to pay my bills due to health issues, and I can not afford a mic either. Which is absolutely necessary for help with setting up the active filters, of which, I do not know how to do. (note- LTD02 has offered to help with the active crossover setup with me taking and emailing him the measurements).

So with that being said, it would be really nice to just be able to purchase the 15" Eminense Deltalite woofer, and pre-built Fusion-15 crossover. Any one care to chime in on how much I would be giving up by going with the Fusion-15 kit versus a Seos-15 + DNA-360 + JBL-2226 active setup?

You won't be giving up much at all.

You'll probably be gaining by getting a XO that's already worked out and proven.

Will the preassembled Fusion-15 crossover be available soon, or should I order the Fusion-15's now to make sure I don't miss the boat?

Dude, are you made of leprechauns? Cause that was awesome!

Yes, I have heard mostly all of them, and yes, I really like the way they sound, and although I can't recall which Seos design uses the Eminense DeltaLite woofer, I was pretty impressed with all of them.

I just really hate to sell my JBL-2226's as I have doubts that the 15" Eminense Deltalite would be in the same performance category as the 2226, although, I could be wrong. Which is why I want some outside opinions.

If I sell my 2226's for say, $165 each, that would net me $230, and I would also save $200 by not having to buy an additional iNuke1000dsp, and another $100 on the mic. That is a total of $530.

I already have the Seos-15's and DNA-360's, so all that is needed would be the 15" Deltalite's ($175ea x2=$350) , the crossover parts ($60 x 2=$120) the baffles ($18ea x2=$36) terminal cups ($10 ea x2-=$20) wood, glue, and wire (=$100).

That all comes out to over $600 for the pair. Plus, I already have the wood cut for my original design with the 2226 in a tower style enclosure.

I originally assumed that if I sold my JBL-2226's I could build the Fusion-15's cheaper, but once I did some investigating, it appears that was not the case, as it would save me over $100 by sticking to what I originally intended! Oh well!
