Hey

I'm beginning a build of a boominator like musikbox, and i was looking at the design for the original boominator, and i have some questions i hope you guys can answer.
The first question; what is the best length between the front and back speaker? (should the speakers touch each other or should there be a space between)
Second question; should the musikbox depth be decreased if the speakers i'll use have a shorter depth than the speakers from the original boominator?
Third guestion; how should the front and back speakers be positioned? (parallel or in different heights)

From Alexander (build beginner)

Hi
You can only use the speakers specified in this thread, otherwise what you are building is NOT a boominator, it may look like one but will not sound or perform like one. You cannot change the dimensions of the speaker boxes, only the middle compartment. The design of the boominator is specific to the speakers, any change will result in poor sound quality.... Follow this thread, use the correct speakers and stick to the original boominator design and you'll end up with a fantastic sound system. Any change and who knows what it will sound like.....
Just because it looks like a boominator, doesn't mean it is one.....

Ps, just routed my solar panels onto the lid, not too bad, nothing a little filler won't fix....

Hey

I'm not building the original type boominator, so isn't there a way the box can be made to fit another type of speakers. I'm still using 10' speakers just not P.Audio HP-10W speakers.

You can make a box to fit, but it won't be 'tuned' like a boominator so it won't sound like one, the boominator design is only for the specified speakers.
There is software to help you design a box for your speakers parameters but you'll be starting from scratch....

Hi
It's been while since I was active on this thread.
I found the P. audio HP 10W on a dutch site called " lwa productions " delivery fee is 15 and THE price of one speaker is 36 From 10 pieces 5% reduction I hope it's still the same price since the email that recieved is almost a year old.
I found also shop near Antwerp for THE P. audio HP 12T I ordered them for building the Q binator but they never could be delivered
I'm gonna build boominator This summer I already got the amp from Arjen helder.Cya

Nice, im finished with the box etc now, just have to buy compoents for the filter.
Found coils, resistors AND caps with right values in my home just to be sure, the cap says max dc voltage 40V (mkt), is that safe to use? The cap is really tiny imo
This is just for testing, so tempted to play with it!

MKT's are good caps.
40V is sufficient.
