It is funny how the most expensive drivers available almost always get pushed straight away on here.  LOL Smile LOL

I've got several P-Audio BM-750's and I love 'em. On a decent horn they hold up well up to around 17kHz . I've also tested them against the original B&C DE-750, as well as several JBL, Beyma and other drivers. They are great - and won't need a bank loan, like so many others.   Smile

"With a $2,258 list price, I suspect this compression driver will find its way into very high-end theater speakers and PA systems, where detail and timber at high volume levels is essential. Beryllium has an outstanding sound quality and excels at detail and definition, so making a compression driver diaphragm from this material has been highly successful"

Oo ok, im convinced.

i just did a quick checkup on the RCF nd950-2 and found that 700~ price.
toutlehautparleur.com is a good find, are they to be trusted? never heard of them.

P-Audio is some thaibrand if i remember correctly? never worked with some of their product, but been to thailand several times, when it comes to PA and speakerequipment in general.....
its mostly big and loud and cheap, in thailand the most important thing when it comes to a gift is the box its wrapped into, the gift itself is secondary. so when i was at a party or festival (were they have countless foodstalls) they have big PAs that sound like a tortured trashcan.

i will give P-Audio a look.

whats your opinion on the BMS 2230 horns im using? i have nothing to compare, every hornspeaker here is diy.

"i will give P-Audio a look."

Please do. Almost all of the plans for the mid-top cabs on this site come with P-Audio as the recommended driver. I basically went from Gauss to P-Audio and have never regretted it, especially as regards the weight difference when you change to the neodymium drivers!   LOL

And yet to blow a P-Audio driver. In over 15 years I've been using them. Several different models, 18's, 12's and 2". Just think about that one!   Beer

At the cheaper end of the scale, Nigel@leanbusiness still has some 2" Celestions on sale for £90. I think they are CDX20 3075.

A good maxim, in terms of buying sound system parts, is buying the best you can afford, as opposed to the cheapest you can find.

As stated previously, if you can't find used BMS 4590 in your budget, consider getting 1" comp and horns to go in spearate cabs above your MTs, or fit the 1" horn flare inside the 12" MT flare, similar to this void cab.



For best results, I used LMS, with fully active sections, powered by separate amplifiers.
