    My design is inspired by the Audience 212 and the Cinema
    6. The Woofer I think I’m going to use is the SB Audience Bianco-8MW125
    8″ Mid-woofer. The Waveguide I think
    is going to be a LaVoce HD1004 1″ Cast Aluminum Exponential Horn 90 x 60. The help
    I need is choosing a Compression driver.

    These are on the list as Nick has all ready used them.

    (1)
    B&C
    DE250-8 1″ Polyimide Horn Driver 8 Ohm

    (2) SB Audience Rosso-44CDN-PK-NEO 44mm PEEK dome

    This is on the list just because its
    new and no one has used it.

    (3) The new Dayton Audio Odeum Ryman
    1017B CD1780B-8 1″ 8 Ohm

    Need some suggestions
    please.

    @grumpy I like where this is going. When I have some more time in the next few days, I want to respond to this more in depth.

    Ah forget it, I think I have time tonight. The horn you have chosen has a 1200hz cutoff, which matches up nice with the Odeum Ryman. Honestly, I am really interested in that driver, especially with it’s extended high frequency. BUt a few questions first. Are you using this for PA use or home use? That will make a difference. Also, where do you foresee yourself crossing this over at? Obviously, no later than 1.2Khz. But do you have an estimated range?

    As it sits, the Rosso is the best sounding (that I have heard). Having said that, the DE250 sounds really good and is almost half the price. Is the rosso, twice as good sounding? I wouldn’t say that. Honestly, I would be happy with either in my project (assuming the right circumstances). The Odeum Ryman really intrigues me, a lot. Especially with that high end. However, in general I am not a huge fan of Titanium diaphragms. However,I will say this, on paper, the Dayton has the best high end.

    My guess is that the Dayton is probably really good at it’s price point, but not as good as either of the others in sound quality. But that is literally just a guess.

    its going to be a front stage, right left and center. the max height for the speakers were to be no more than 36 inches so the center can be placed under a TV vertically. as for the Dayton compression driver it does come with a Additional poly diaphragm. but there does not seam to be much info on the response assuming that the posted graph is with the Titanium diaphragm.

    as for cross over point that will be depended on the actual responses when the drivers are in the box. I will start at 1200 and play with it.
