Hope this is the right place for this. I have gathered, over the last few years, a bunch of drivers, which I am now hoping to turn into a system. They are 1 x Martin 15" and Tweeter, 1 x 15" Turbosound and Tweeter, and 4 x 12" relatively miscellaneous drivers.
What I have in mind is a 2x15" dual horn bass bin with the 15's, and two 2x12 + tweeter mid tops. So the turbo and martin 15s in one box which I am hoping is OK because both original cabinets were 300w rated, and then two more cabinets with two 12s in each and a tweeter as mid top boxes.
I am a woodworker by trade so im not daunted by that side of things, Ive got a load of marine ply and other materials set aside just waiting to be a sound system. But the science of speakers does a bit. I suppose the questions/problems could be endless, but for starters -
Is it ok to pair up two different 15s in one cabinet?
Is a dual horn type thing appropriate?
Is there a tried and tested 2x12 and tweeter design out there for mid tops?
All three boxes passive. For crossovers, four way? or three way?
In terms of amplification, I have a couple of power amps I have collected too, but any suggestions welcome as mine are... 'vintage'...
All bearing in mind this system is probably going to be a workhorse for DJ'd music rather than an exquisite home hi-fi.
If the drivers are not the same model you are probably going to run into a lot of issues and not a very good sound system as far as the 212 meant top there are plenty of Plans out there again if they're not matching drivers you're going to run into problems
