    Cheap Focals

    Was wondering if these would work well in a comp setup for the rear. The price is gorgeous, lol...

    https://www.woofersetc.com/p-9106-hp...kers-pair.aspx

    I'll be adding what ever tweets that would match up well, on a set of CDT EX-450 xover's I have from the front that's now active.

    Opinions?

    edit: I'll either rebaffle a pair of 6x9 enclosures, or build new ones for them. They won't be in the deck, due to to substage,

Regular edge ups between trimmings too obviously.

    Re: Cheap Focals

    I went ahead and got em'. The sale, technically, ended 12 minutes ago.... so I figured I'd better scoop them up while they were still $25. Now I just need to find out how to properly use them, lol...
    @West ;, any ideas?

    For 25$ you cant go wrong... Just make em fit
    Switching a 6x9 slot over to a 5 doesn't sound like too bad a plan, you could make a wooden baffel...

    That's what I was thinking. I have a pair of 6x9 boxes from my old setup. I figured re-baffling those enclosures would be fine since the speakers are likely geared for an IB setup, and a sealed enclosure that's too large could mimic that environment. What would be a good tweet to match the speaker and those CDT crossover's? The cdt's xover point is 4.3 khz @ a 24db slope.

    Re: Cheap Focals

    Yup, sale ended. Glad I grabbed them. Now I'm trying to figure out what tweets to pair with them on the CDT ex450 xover. Thinking this might call for searching through the 4 ohm tweets at Part-express.
