    I'm looking to build a brite box similar to a Trace Elliot 4x5 4052h I have, but that rascal is heavy as all getout, so I'm looking for a lighter version. I want to use the Galaxy Audio S5N neo (PE 290-020). If I like it, I may build another, and use them as the upper end, along with my fEARful 15subs for a nice, light PA setup. I'd like a trapezoidal shape, and incorporate line array features, if applicable. Also any x-over info would be appreciated.

    Why have 4 5s? Fairly sure a single 6 or 6.5 will do the job, and have less placement issues, see Fearful headcase. There are probably some 5" options, but the fearful driver is a known thing.

    If you haven't already listened to a Galaxy 5 neo, try it with some recorded music first to make sure you like the tone. I've had a few as vocal monitors and considered them barely acceptable in reproducing voices and a few instruments.
