how about a 75 degree synergy horn kit good to 300hz with a suggestion/plan(s) for a woofer(s) to carry the mid-bass? ;-) this could be done with a single coax driver (low cost). if crossed in that low, folks could put the woofer(s) beside the horn for those who need a center channel under their screen without getting too much off axis combing, right? maybe a budget woofer option and a performance woofer(s) option. home rooms don't need the massive top end power found in the pro line because high frequencies attenuate with distance much faster than low frequencies.
also, what do you suggest for flattening out all the ripple in the frequency response? not to spend too much time with a competitor, but toole and co. did an enormous amount of research and concluded that flat frequency response (and smooth power response) was pretty much the single most important factor relating to subjective listener scores. you have peaks and dips all over the place, but folks report good sound. is there a way to make good sound -> better sound with some eq, or does monkeying around with e.q. mess up the goodness? i could see how adding a whole bunch of filters may be worse, particularly in the time domain, than just going raw.
"Let me know what you think"
the harley wavefile is very interesting.
the left/right stereo is obviously very good. something is right about that.
there was also a weird effect. the motorcycle seemed to be jumping back and forth from being in front of me to being behind me. it was giving me an audio version of vertigo. i listened to it several times and kept experiencing the same effect. something is very wrong about that.
"FWIW, Usually the BMS coax mf/hf crossover in that driver is more like 6-8KHz not 1700Hz."
right. 1700hz is where qsc crosses from the bms coax to their midrange horn.
