Hello, I am new here but I did search around for the question I have. I didn't see anything that gave me an answer. Ok, so I'm thinking of building a center channel. Not to save money but to get my feet wet building a speaker. From what I know, as we age we can no longer hear the high frequencies. So, would you need a true tweeter? This sounds like a stupid question, I've grown up with great sound and spent a good deal of time working as an installer of car audio when I was younger. Anyway, I'm 30 & since I doubt my hearing is going to get better I was wondering if I would need a true tweeter for a speaker. I'm toying with the following setup: Crossover: (500/5k) http://www.parts-express.com/pe/pshowdetl.cfm?&Partnumber=290-654&scqty=1 Low frequency driver 5" (2 of them @ 100-500hz) http://www.parts-express.com/pe/pshowdetl.cfm?&Partnumber=295-370&scqty=2 Mid frequency driver 4" (2 of them @ 500-5khz) http://www.parts-express.com/pe/pshowdetl.cfm?&Partnumber=295-378&scqty=2 High frequency driver 3" (1 @ 5khz+) http://www.parts-express.com/pe/showdetl.cfm?partnumber=295-336 The 5" is billed as a woofer, the 4" is billed as full range & the 3" is billed as full range. I want punchy accurate bass/midbass & crisp high's, but don't think I would require a true tweeter if I can no longer hear much above 12-16khz. Would the above (or another) full range 2-3.5" speaker work as a quality high frequency driver? I like that all the drivers are from the same company/family & should sound good together. Anyone have any insight on this?
