I need some help and advise on which of these two builds that I will soon be building for my theater room. The two options are
First design is the full size Statements that utilize the Fountek Neo Cd3.0 for the tweeter, it uses a pair of Tang Band W4 1337SD's per speaker for the mids, and also a pair of Dayton RS225-8's per speaker for the low end.
Second design that I am considering is Bob Crites' Corn-Scala that utilizes the Selenium 220Ti tweeter with the Selenium HM11-25 horn for the tweeter, and a Selenium D405 CD with a JBL clone M2380 horn for the mids, and a Klipsch K-33 clone for the woofer.
Of course I realize that these are two totally different design concepts. I know that the Corn-Scala will be capable of greater SPL due to it having greater efficiency, and that it will also rule for the dynamics, but those attributes are not what I want and/or like. . Here is what I want in a theater speaker:
1. Detail & Clarity in the very top end.
4. Full body sound
I am also open to other driver combo suggestions, but it must be a 3 way design as I am dead set on going with a 3-way versus a 2-way. I have considered various other designs that include drivers such as the Radian 950PB, JBL 2426 & 2012, Beyma TPL-??, BMC 4550 & 4592. Horns that I have considered are the JBL clone M2380, Selenium HF17-25, Elip-Track 400 from Dave Harris, Seos-24
Any advise on how these two will compare both subjectively and objectively, and how would they fit my needs and wants?
Also looking for other 3-way design ideas as well.
