DIY speaker drivers selection

I am trying to put together a DIY 3 way speaker using Beyma drivers for home theater (LCR channels) usage. I already have 4 number of 18" subwoofers to take care of the LFE and I will be using the LCR speakers with bass management. Subsequently I am planning to build 2 way speakers with Beyma TPL 75 AMT driver for surrounds/atmos as well to complete the 7.4.4 Atmos system.

Please let me know if the following combination of drivers is good for home theater purpose when compared to other reputed speakers like JBL M2 with compression driver:

HF - Beyma TPL-150H (https://usspeaker.com/beyma%20tpl150h-1.htm)
LF - 12P80Nd (https://usspeaker.com/beyma%2012p80Nd-1.htm)
MF - 6MCF200ND (https://www.beyma.com/en/products/c/...6mcf200nd-8-oh)

Unfortunately, I need to decide based on reviews and opinions as I don't have access to a place where I can demo them. My usage will be 90% movies and 10% music. Thank you!

How are you going to EQ these speakers? Passive xover? Active DSP?

Maybe someone else has experience with those drivers, but I've heard great things about the Beyma TPL-150H...pricey but supposed to be fantastic.

The TPL150H is excellent, but the others I haven't used. If you do a search on them, you'll find comments, but I've never had a really bad Beyma driver, so they're probably fine. It's fairly unlikely anyone has used just that combo DIY.



What are you doing for a xover?

I am aiming to get a Trinnov Altitude 16 to EQ the speakers as I heard that it works really well.

Looks like I am out of luck in locating someone who has heard both JBL M2 and Beyma AMT driver based DIY speaker to get some feedback.
