I’m planning a 2-way speaker project based around the Beyma TPL-150H and one of the AE TD15 drivers. But before ordering a pair, I want to make sure I’ve chosen the right driver for the job! Originally, I was going to use a pair of TAD TD-1601b, but they’re not good performers crossed over above 800 Hz or so.
The TPL-150H is rated at 102 dB sensitivity, 80 x 30 degree dispersion, and 80 W AES power handling above 1 kHz with a 12 db/oct. or higher slope. I’m thinking of a 1500 Hz crossover point.
Would I be compromising the quality of reproduction by crossing over the TD15H—or any of the TD15s—as high as 1500 Hz?
Also, are cabinet plans available? I’m thinking of 6 cu. ft. (170 L), ported, but have no idea what port dimensions would be appropriate.
Amplifier would be a McCormack DNA-500 (500/900 Wrms @ 8/4 ohms). Application would be home stereo at both low and high SPLs.
Comments and suggestions much appreciated!
