Take a look at miniDSP. I haven't used it, but I've read of lots of people who are experimenting with their offerings and very satisfied.
As with any DIY Speaker, you still need great fundamental understanding and diligence to get it perfect. It's a powerful, powerful tool, but even the best tool is worthless if not used well.get one of those, get some good quality drivers, then sit back and enjoy the show, or musical bliss if thats what ur into.
T/S parameters are not the way to put together a speaker. They make decent guidelines for a rough idea, but you need measurements, of things that a TS parameter cannot show. The most useful T/S parameter is Fs - resonant frequency. You need to make sure you are crossing over a good octave above fs, especially for tweeters.what specs (t/s parameters) would you look for in a driver if you were gonna use this deqx hdp-3
Whoa! It can vastly minimize the issues of crossovers. Loudspeakers have many, many weaknesses that you need to understand and address, that a DEQX won't "take care of"... Stored energy, power output, distortion, control of directionality etc are still things that contribute to the overall speaker.t can take care of virtually all of the weaknesses in a loudspeaker?
Not at all. Speaker design is sufficiently complex if you've never done it before! I highly recommend reading some books on audio reproduction and speaker design. Definitely read the works of guys like Floyd Toole, Earl Geddes, Vance Dickason, Ray Alden, Seigfried Linkwitz, Rod Elliot, and many others. On the bright side, it's a lot easier to fix "messing up" an active speaker than "messing up" a passive one.would it just be a matter of the design of the enclosure?
A good phantom center channel is excellent. However if you listen to recordings with discrete center channels, it may still be worthwhile to do a center. Not necessarily immediately, but eventually. My center channel will probably use a Seas or B&C Coaxial driver.forgot to add, the deqx site says that u could use one just for the fronts, and that they will become so cohesive that u wont even need a center channel anymore. it would create a phantom center channel. i dont know where i was going with that, it just sounded really cool to me.
