You may have little luck finding a crossover design to use the vintage LE85/2420 on a modern waveguide. Simply put, the guys with vintage compression drivers usually have little interest in...

If the Fusion 8 just isn't enough for you for mains duty (I suspect they will be fine), they are pretty easy to repurpose as surrounds or another room in the house. Build two and run a phantom center...

I have smoked glass on the tops of my M2 clones. The M2 height is perfect for plants and knick-knacks :rolleyes:

Excellent :D

Now take the extra screws, paint them black, and replace the others. You know you have a black rattle can for just such emergencies.

Hard to find a consumer speaker to compare to a Fusion 8 simply because it does not run full range...it needs a subwoofer. $250-$500 speakers with wimpy bass simply do not sell...

Tux,

Have you had a chance to hear the JBL D2430K compression driver used in the M2 monitors and few others? Not cheap ($350-$400?) and hard to get but they do run down to 800Hz in the M2.

You are off to a nice start on the crossovers.

I've built several of the Zilch ewave combos over the years. I think they required more of the "Y" in DIY than some folks were willing to invest.

I have a pair of the JBL LSR305 for my PC. Much different look than the L8/L16. On a good day you can get them for $100 each but $150 seems to be the regular retail price.
