    I’m “gathering wool” for a cabinet build, and wondering what the advantages/disadvantages are of these two options for mid/hi drivers, in terms of dispersion and imaging.

    [Note: I’m not set, at all, on either of these – they just represent two different ways to fulfill similar functions.]

    Contestant #1:
    • FaitalPRO M5N8-80
    • 180 Hz – 8 kHz
    • 99 dB (1w/1m)
    • $120
    Contestant #2:
    • Eminence Alpha 3-8 (x8)
    • 150Hz – 20k
    • 86dB (1w/1m) [96 dB as a set]
    • $15 x 8 = $120
    Feel free to point me towards previous threads or other resources that explain the acoustical engineering behind this...

    Thanks!
