I am about to start building new mains. I have one set of D220ti and horn from the econowave, but since I still need two more sets I got to wondering if the SEOS waveguide with the DNA-350 or 360 would improve the sound of my build as the cost difference is not too substantial. Has anyone compared these and what was your impression?

Thanks,
Bricktop

I have not personally compared the two in a side by side a/b scenero, but I have heard the Selenium D220Ti in a 3-way Corn-Scala design, and the Seos-12/DNA-360 in a 2-way configuration, and to be honest, there were things that I liked better about the Corn-Scala, but I think that in a 2-way configuration the D220Ti would be a step down from the Seos/DNA-360.

I have heard the 220 and the DE-250 which the 360 is supposed to be like. I am also getting some DNA-205's soon.

I just received a pair of SEOS12 today. I have the Selenium d220ti here. I also received the Dayton D250P and D250T compression drivers. I am also getting some compression drivers from Erich so I will be able to compare the DNA-350 as well.

I will be putting together a few kits with the TD woofers. These will use the miniDSP amps. The higher end ones will use the Radian 475PB. This allows for a simple upgrade path of using the Apollo TD woofers with the Beryllium diaphragm in the Radian compression driver. I am evaluating the other above compression drivers for the entry level option. I have used the d220Ti in the past with good results but Any of those are in a similar price range and I want to pick the best option for the kits.

I have the SEOS and dna360 in my build with some of John's TD12x's and the bottom. For surrounds I have the selenium d220ti mated to an eminence 10cx coaxial. I like the selenium for sure, but I feel the 360 does a little better. Obviously the dispersion patterns between the coaxial and the SEOS horn are different so it is a tough head to head, but I do get pretty excellent response from both. In panning surround scenes they all play quite well together too smile.gif
