    I have a new project, 4 way loudspeaker with 15", 12", 2" compression driver and 1" tweeter.
    I will use a passive crossover filter, tuning frequencies will be 200Hz, 800Hz, 8000Hz.

    For instance I have the 15", 12", tweeters and 2" horns. I didn' t choose the 2" compression driver yet but the Faital PRO HF204 are very interesting.

    Is that response with a matching horn attached? Never mind - I read the small print. My days of needing the extra tweeter are long past, but I do have a really nice subwoofer - flat response for music, not a boomy thing for movie effects.

    The response is with 90° x 40° horn, I choosed B&C SPEAKERS aluminium horns, constant directivity 90° x 40°,

    Makes sense. I take it you have neighbours about a mile away who need entertaining? :cheers:
