MCM 55-2960 with Pyle PDS442+Dayton H07E
This is my second test with the MCM 55-2960. This time round, I’m using a budget Pyle PDS442 compression driver coupled to a Dayton H07E. I decided on this combo because of the low cost. The PDS442 is only $22.88 and the H07E is $7.99, available from Parts-Express. Add to that $15.21 for the MCM 55-2960, we have a measly sum of $46.08. For this minuscule amount, It’s worth testing whether this setup is good enough for HiFi. If not, it can always be used for PA.
As before, the drivers are in a bi-amped, active setup. I used an external 24dB/oct Linkwitz Riley electronic crossover to divide the frequencies between the woofer and the horn combo. Crossover frequency is set at 1,200Hz.
