Default My setup

I am currently using these speakers ( the peerless) in my system. I started with a 1000 cu in sealed box, it sounded alright but not great. I in the same size box and wired it to four ohms. This made a major improvement and so far is the best i have come up with but i will try more. I am using an active crossover at 400 hz and below. Because this rolls off around 60 hz or so i added the 10" foster subwoofer (also procured at BA) and set it to below 80 hz. A pair of Rodgers LS3-5A's and AB1's cover anything above 400 hz which means the AB1's are hardly doing anything except changing the impedance, i am using 100w to drive the peerless speakers, they have a certain punchiness that goes very well with the Rodgers.

adding the peerless drivers made an improvement in the sound, and the foster, even more.
Bottom line, i would not run these above 600 hz as they get a bit hollow sounding, at least in the tiny box.
I was very impressed at the sound quality and the thump they give out.

Not sure if this has been covered but specs are here:

find some middies
Would probably be easier and better to just get a better tweeter that can cover a wider range

I got 4 - 6" DAYTON drivers at the show. I'm gonna use the two per side with the tweeter between , D'Apollito, somewhat like Christian did with his Peerless

Maybe this tweeter? Will fit well between the drivers

Vifa D26NC55

It's $37 ea so maybe a bit pricey

Good work Christian- getting us thinking about our Burning Speakers

The link that N-Brock posted for the Peerless specifications are only for the nonlinear parameters. The linear parameters in the Klippel report are not correct:

http://home.comcast.net/~jhidley/Kli...I_Detailed.htm

If you need any of the linear parameters (standard Thiele-Small stuff) for box modeling, get it from this spreadsheet:

http://home.comcast.net/~jhidley/NHT_Drivers-2.xls

The Peerless drivers in question are npt-11-078-1. Since I have no more of these, I've hidden the row for that driver in the spreadsheet. You can use the instructions at the top of the spreadsheet to unhide the row for it.

AR2,
I jump in and out of this thread from time to time, Funny you were talking about powder coating. I am building an unusual shaped Aikido with and aluminum top plate which the tubes....excuse me, valves protrude through and are exposed. I also have an El-Cheapo Powder coat gun but mine's from Harbor Freight, I have made some modifications to the gun and it's 3 times the quality it was before. Your gun looks exactly the same as mine right down to the baby crap mustard yellow color. I'll shoot you a PM later today to get your Email address and send you some pics of what I've done.
I powder coated my front calipers on the Porsche 2 years ago and they are perfect to this day. PC is fun, easy, and durable.
I'm trying (unsuccessfully) to copy the look of carbon fiber, any suggestions?

Ron

Ron,

I'm curious what modifications you made to the Harbor Freight powder coating gun. Would you please share them on this site?

Tom

Is is likely to be at the Presidio Yacht Club?

I really looking forward to BAM 2009. But it looks like I need to rearrange my project priority list: only 112 days left!
