Target Goal would be a WAF speaker that still delivers great performance at a cost that we can easily recommend people for those who refuse to do things like buy big woofers! The 4 6.5s would deliver on the woofer cone space in a compact "tower" "WAF" design.
80 hz ok for cut off I think but I mean generally the way these speakers are designed I don't think that's ever a real issue
efficiency anything above 94 if possible while still being "budget" like the Fusion 4 Quad.
Max Speaker Depth Err Overthinking this =D
Rear Ported? Depends on how the flat pack design is. If it's easier/more cost effective to do front port, then front port.
Hope that helps and if anyone else agrees with what that speaker should entail.
I think the Fusion 4 Quad is clearly an amazing speaker, so a slightly larger version of it in a TWWWW if possible.
$450 max, but I mean, like you've said before, this is dependent on the drivers you find. If you find drivers that make it $460 then I mean.... do it....
If you find drivers that make it work at like $300 a pair, then why would we want to pay more!
All about whether it's something you want to invest time in, and I completely understand if there are more interesting things on the horizon to do.
I don't know your process of course.
