Hi guys, You know, as much as I love my Dynaudio Gemini's, I am seriously contemplating building some new mains and probably a center for my system. I am a DIY kind of guy, so I have been researching the very best drivers available at any cost, and I plan on constructing the cabinets myself. Since I have already begun building a pair of incredible subwoofers based on the HE 15 drivers, I would like to build "satellites" that would equal the quality of my subs. While investigating the possibilities, I have learned that passive crossover design is more art than science, and it takes many years to become adept at that particular aspect of speaker design, so I have been considering the "active" approach. Since enclosure design and speaker alignment are basically straight forward concepts and pretty easy to learn, I feel that using electronic crossovers and separate amps for each driver will make the system "gel" a lot easier than attempting to design passive crossovers. So I ask the people who have done extensive listening to active speaker systems, what do you think of active speakers (not necessarily digital) in comparison to passive speakers? Now, so far in my research, since I will only need these speakers to be good down to 80 hz, due to my HE 15 subs taking care of business below that point, my thoughts are to use a pair of mid-woofs and a tweeter in each cabinet, using the MTM approach. First of all, am I correct in assuming that the MTM design would be better than a MT (or is it TM) design in that it produces a wider soundstage and is capable of higher SPL's? The high SPL capability is important to me, as most of you already know I am tossing around the use of the Scan-Speak 15W/8530K-00 5" woofer and 15S/8530K-01 shielded woofer for the mid bass drivers and the Scan-Speak Revelator D2905/9900 tweeters, or possibly the Raven series of ribbon tweeters. What do you guys think of these choices and what others do you think I should consider? So any ideas and/or comments would be appreciated. If there is enough interest, maybe we can even get a group design going that might turn into the very best speaker available at any price, and since it would be a DIY project, it would only cost a fraction of the price of company manufactured units Anyone interested?
