Being 2.5 or 3 way is not an advantage. It's a designs choice many people, myself included , prefer a well designed 2 way speaker
why would they be more music oriented just by beeing 2 1/2 or 3 way? arent there music in movies too btw
its almost like your saying 2 way is for ht and 3 way is for music only, i myself preferd 3 way for movies, again ears all work different , i myself can hear upto about 20-21khz stll and im 36, so i might got sensitive ears, what s maby the reason i like the full-range more, i dono just guessing here.
better details , better voices and effect imo.
Imo "not owning a big 2 way" the thing i want to build is gonna triumph the 2 way by a oki margin, for voices in movies, effect and have the benefits of being able to play great music whit no sub, just how i like it.
"So don't dismiss a suggestion just because its a two way"
for now the 2 way are ruled out.
I could just build the 2 way, but nah, ill keep at this as its a dream project, im in no hurry, i got great sounding speaker, 2x 12" subs running, same speaker units across the fronts.
in the end i might have to ditch the CD driver and go for a Ribbon build, as there are many like that out there, so i dont have to fiddle whit a crossover that never will work for me.
and many of the builds ivd read/seen that was seeking a ultimate speaker 2 way whit high high end units in them, like Amt tweeters, and the top of the line 15"/12" are thinking of adding in more,
many is talking about adding in a smaller mid´s to get the details from the upper mid, and keeping the bigger unit for dynamiks.
i know there's alot of happy ppl whit just 2 way, and im sure there are some great sounding ones available, like the seos or pi4, but i want to a speaker for what i like combined into one.
i have had the idea of just making a seos 15" , but then again i want to make sure i get the units that can be used in the final project, and that i CAN make it happen after the initial build
so thats why im just not rushing out buying and building.
Pnw - wow really 9 amp outs and 3 from avr, darn. man exp.
