This will be my first post here. So, first a quick introduction.
I am currently building a 2-way bookshelf speaker using the following drivers:Tweeter - Tymphany (Peerless) XT25TG30-04Woofer - Dayton Audio RS150P-8A
First question: Is this recommended/ beneficial or should I be starting with manufacturer's specs and using the simulated baffle effects?
Anyone out there an expert with VituixCAD yet?
I could use some advise on crossover design.
I am running into the problem of having to pull the trigger on one design while having probably 3 different ways I could go. I have been really trying to take into account the off axis response as is recommended by Dr. Floyd Toole. I am using my off axis measurements in VituixCAD to help inform the crossover design. Anyone with experience here would really help out. I have included some measurements if you would like to check it out. I can supply the ZMA's and other files if you'd like to help.

I would try two woofers, one tweeter configured in a D'Appolito arrangement...
Why?True D'Appolito design requires complex crossovers and of course an extra mid/woofer and probably a larger cabinet in order to gain more efficiency.Heard $15,000/pair MTM design a few years back that had the classic phase cancellation issue found in typical MTM designs. Went forward to get an image of listening group and saw their heads bobbing up and down hunting for the midpoint between the midrange drivers to avoid the cancellation effect.
I'm not sure about crossing over a standard tweeter at 500hz. Most can't take the power and will be producing extreme distortion unless you have a horn/waveguide. If you use a 2nd or even 4th order slope, you will still be playing your tweeter at significant levels at 150hz.
