Just in the planning stages for my first DIY speaker project, and have been kicking around the idea if using planar-magnetic drivers for midbass, a 6 foot tall ribbon tweeter, and a powered sub for the bass. The general concept has two mid-bass panels per speaker, one on each side of the ribbon tweeter. Think Carver AL III with Magnepan serving up the midbass. The outside panel would be the dimentional array... I realize I have much to learn here and these are just a thought at the moment, but I just cannot get the idea out of my head that if a speaker could give you that open, transparent sound you get from a Maggie, with the three-dimentional presentation and authorative bass and soundstage from the SDA, it may just be a perfect speaker.
There is much talking out my ass in this post, but that is where all ideas start... what do you guys see as problems with the concept and how whould I overcome them?
