I bet they would be killer...but I doubt that a DSP + 3 channels of amplification would be cheaper than the design I posted above. Mine is a pretty minimalist design considering the number of parts in posted Danley designs......

SpeakerScott -

I was just re-reading this thread, and noticed the way you mounted the PRV compression driver. Clever. That has always been a problem in my Synergy designs, allowing for access to the traditional screws or studs on the CD. I might have to steal that one smile.gif

That's why they're called compression drivers right? (See what I did there? I find myself very funny. )

Steal away....I would point out that I think it will work well with metal backed drivers. Some of them (cheaper PRV, Dayton...etc)...have a polymer back that may not hold up it's shape under the pressure needed to hold it against the horn. A thicker wider layer of foam would help.

Any updates on the crossover Scott? I am in the process of collecting parts and going to start a pair of these, thanks for all the hard work and documentation. I am fascinated by this design and cant wait to try some. I kinda sorta want to build a high power prosound version for a DJ system I am going to build for my house too.

Hey!!! Sorry...don't mean to be silent. I still haven't updated the crossover on these....I do have a UMIK-1 and REW working on a laptop now so it'll be easier. (I don't have to move my big desktop outside) I've got a speaker commission I'm working on now (SEOS-12 design) so I'll be one of the few who have heard both Synergy and SEOS pretty soon.

I'll post an update on that in a separate thread.

Hey! Just like me! I still have my SEOS in house even though the 50's won't be getting supplanted for any reason...

Can you say more about the SEOS-12 design?
