I am putting together a system, and would like some advice. I am shooting for the best sound quality, and I want this system to be usable for small private raves, as well as home theatre, and critical home audiophile listening applications, in as compact a form factor as possible. Heres a list of the parts I currently posess:
(2) 1" McCauley 6510
(2) 10" McCauley 6326 (Fs ~300Hz)
(1) 15" McCauleu B1560
(1) 15" McCauley 6242
(1) 18" Aura 1808
(2) 200L prebuilt Flague cabinets
I am thinking about making a 3-way in these 200L boxes, running an Aura 1808/Seismic 8196 on each channel, crossed over at around 275-325Hz, 24db active. This would be nice, as it would avoid me having to insert a 15" in between the 10" and 18" to cover the lower-mid to midbass, and having therefore to make seprate cabs for the 18"'s.
Is it feasible to run these 18" drivers up that high? I know they are pretty advanced drivers. What drawbacks, if any, are there to doing this?
Otherwise, I will do a 3-way + sub with a 15" coming in at 275-400Hz (likely the B1560 because of its 98db efficiency). Or do you think the 95db 6242 is better?
The 1808's would then be housed in (lightweight) 24" diameter sonotube cabinets, about 4 feet tall, biamped at around <100Hz, down-firing.
I appreciate your suggestions!
