Sounds like a cool idea. It ends up being a 3 way MTM. I love the idea. Especially with this type of efficiency. However, I am a little confused with the crossover points.
You will need two crossover points. One for thetweeter and the mid of the compression driver (there is no crossover for that) and then one for the mid to the 12" woofers. By the looks of it, that tweeter will want to crossover by 2Khz. With this in mind, I would be looking to crossover the sub much sooner, probably closer to baffle step region or sooner(by 500hz).
@123toid Awesome thanks. i Just Bought the drivers to make 1. I have a feeling this might take a couple of iterations with the box and the crossover to get it right.
That is not uncommon. Someone once asked Andrew Jones how he knew his speaker design was complete. He simply responded, when someone higher up tells me I can't work on it any longer 🤣 The point being, is we can always tweak a little at a time. But that is part of the hobby and what we enjoy about it.
