Selenium D250-X GW 1" Phenolic Horn Driver 1-3/8"-18 TPI
would this work with a 500w stage monitor?
i got a peavey.s stage monitor drivers went
This driver is better suited for a midrange application and may not provide the high frequency output you would like. I would recommend a Selenium D220Ti horn driver for your application:http://www.parts-express.com/pe/showdetl.cfm?Partnumber=264-270

Which 2 way crossover would i use with this horn driver? The driver will be used in a Leslie speaker build.
I am a little confused using this driver in a 2 way set-up. I am sure you are aware, this is a midrange driver. Even though the specifications say it will go to 9000hz, it falls flat on its face after 5000hz. If you are building a traditional 2-way (woofer/tweeter), I would return this driver and get a Selenium D220TI HF driver.To answer your question, it depends which type of horn you are using and your woofers performance. . The minimum crossover point for this driver is 500Hz and you can use a Eminence PXB2:800 with a Selenium HL 14-25 or HL 23-25 horn. Both horns are rated at 600 min crossover and you will be crossing over at 800hz. Almost all woofers will do 800hz no problem.If you got the wrong driver and switch to a D220TI, then we need to move the crossover point up to 1500hz. An Eminence PXB2:1K6 will work nicely with a Selenium HM 11-25 or HL 25-25 horn. Both horns are rated at a 1200 min. crossover. It will also work nicely with the above horns as well. Most high quality woofers will do 1500-2000hz, so depending on your woofers quality and performance, you should be ok. The D220Ti is good from 1500hz to 20,000hz.Hope this answers your questions.

I was planning on building some big tower speakers with a 4 way setup design, but i cant decide what midrange. What has better sound quality (but some spl as well) a midrange woofer or a horn driver? Will play them from about 2 to 7khz.
Better sound quality is subjective and impossible to answer. You can get good sound from either option, although the horn driver will probably require more crossover work to tame it.
