A couple of questions about midrange drives location and aiming.

1-Dome midranges are very attractive because they don't require a substantial air space so they are easily located. On ECA it has been said that dome mids are very hard to setup because of dispersion characteristics. Is this true and does it apple to certain locations only?

2- If domes are located near the midbass in the front lower doors, is a 600-800 hz crossover an issue? Is it just critical to stay away from crossovers in this range? How should the domes be aimed?

3-I understand that the 3 inch Auras lack dynamics? Iis this an issue if they are located on the doors or is this a kick issue only? If the crossover is lets say at 600hz is there still an issue with dynamics? Also if the Auras are in the lower door how should they be aimed-generally speaking?

Thanks, that does help. I have looked at several domes and they can all go down to 600 hzor so. How low would I have to go to not be 'smack in the middle of the vocal range'? and can domes go that low? Can you recommend a dome for this application.

The DSL domes were particular attractive because of their small size. Can anyone comment on their sound compared with LPG and Usher? Well if reasonably priced domes cannot function under 500hz and this is in the vocal range, how can domes be made to work well within a system?

Could some members give examples of systems they have heard that work well? Examples of specific speakers used, crossovers and mounting positions would help be me an understanding how to use domes. I am particularly interest in non-kick installations.
