  • Argh!!! Choosing Drivers

    Posted by josephlal on February 19, 2021 at 10:20 am

    I’ve known for a while exactly how my DIY speakers will look – in every way.  I know what I want them to sound like and I know the first song I’ll play when I demo them to my friends. I’m eve 10% of the way to having the first clue how to build a crossover.  I know I want 3-way.

    How in god’s name do you go about choosing the drivers!!!???

    Pretty sure the tweeter will be the Morel Excel – in my opinion, the tweeter is the most important to get right.

    the rest? pff, I must have built 30 frd files and still none the wiser.


    I know 8″ is the biggest I can go and from my car subwoofer box building days (25 years ago) I prefer a couple of smaller drivers than 1 big one for more “punch”.


    Passive Radiator? Port? Sealed?


    These will probably be crosseded over at 80Hz anyway so why agonise so much!?


    How do you choose your drivers?
