twitter for Dayton Audio RS150P-8A
Hello! I'm going to build medium size 2way speakers with Dayton Audio RS150P-8A of RS150-8 Al version woofer. I really enjoy how it looks and hope also sound decent. I recently red about beaming: https://toidsdiyaudio.com/community/postid/2583/ For RS-150 the beening starts at about 1850 Hz.
Do you have any ideas which tweeter amd crossover to use to get best room-filling open sound?
I already designed a crossover for the RS-150-8 Al:
What do you thik about that? I just need to add I'm very beginner in DIY speaker bilds, so don't hold back criticism 😉
No worries. We all start somewhere. Doing a two way with an 8" woofer is always hard to do, bue to the low crossover point needed. You're ngoing to want a tweeter with a low FS. You will probably want at least a 1" that can be crossed over no later than 1500hz. THat will give you some leeway when you crossover. I would look at the Dayton Reference, Peerless Corrondum and maybe the Peerless Ring radiator. Any of these should work with it.
Thank you for such a quick response 😀 Rs150 is 6 inches, but I see your point. I have thought about Dayton Reference already but I found this guy <a href=" removed link " target="true">Tymphany XT25SC90-04 with Fs = 824.8 Hz, and it's better priced, what do you think?
Whoops, sorry I read rs180, even though it is clearly rs150. Funny thing, is I still would have been wrong, since that is 7". Whoops. Having said that, typical lowest crossover point is 2x FS. THat puts that tweeter around 1650hz. You could probably go a little lower, I try to have FS about 20db down from your system dB at FS. You'll probably need at least a 3rd order.
