With that response, do you find it necessary to apply a high pass? Looks like that can do without one and can just be controlled with resistors and dampers alone.
Well you can always experiment and try, I know that there are some manufacturers that go for like 5 drivers w/o crossover so there's real life examples that it could be done, what you can make from such arrangement is completely up to you

W/o crossover sounds lazy Though(from engineering standpoint)
Hahahahahha

Tried andro gold and was disappointed as it was not resolving enough and campfire tuning is kinda weird for my taste

@piotrus-g is actually right, you can try mixing and matching, adjusting tubes and shifting resonances and fill one driver dip with other driver peak and create a decombing smoothening effect.

Good way to exercise tube lenght and tube resonances

A little update from my MASM 3 Pro with added 38D1X, the MASM 5 A.
I've played around a bit with adding tubes right into the shell in Fusion 360 and that worked quite well. In the end though, I've settled with the shell from @Aldo40 from page 885, which I modified to make the nozzle bigger so that I can fit 2x 2mm and 1x 1mm ID tubes quite nicely.
I've printed with black resin and used Lack 3 for the shell itself and for the faceplate I went with some nail polish with chameleon effect, covered with Lack 3.



All in all I'm very happy with the result and can recommend adding a 38D1X to the amazing MASM 3 Pro's.

Wow, that is professional level. Would love that shell file if you are willing and able to share it :)

Yup, there's even a 24 drive monstrosity with a crossoverless design!

never liked anything from CA personally. Especially the OG Andromeda. It sounds weird and unnatural to me.

it's in page 85. Download it and change the file name extension from .txt to .stl.

All kudos for this marvelous shell go to Aldo40. I changed the nozzle to a whopping 6.5mm OD, if you want that I can share it.
Here is a 1mm faceplate. Same procedure as for the shell, change the extension from .txt to .stl.

Hey, this shell has a pretty wide bore and you can use the faceplate from a few posts above. Rename the .txt to .stl. The bore is about 6.5mm and you might struggle to fit your usual tips, please keep that in mind.
