Default Size matters

Thanks Brian...
Two more things...

the back is sloped but the average depth is 22 cm. so far I've found this driver likes wide baffles.
yes there is a port at the bottom back. port length starting point will be as suggested by the dreaded WinISD and later adjusted by actual in room measurements.

are you thinking of a second Feastrex system for your bedroom?

Brian

Hi Phil,

I picked up the WT2 from S&L a while back (pretty sure they provide the one for Partsexpress). I also tried running it from XP running under Parallels on the MacBook Pro. Not a good setup as I had a constant clicking sound coming from the driver, most likely caused by timing sensitivities in the USB being virtualized to the VM session. Unless you're using Boot Camp (hence a native boot of XP on the Mac) you may have the same problem and the results will not be accurate. I wound up using an older ThinkPad running XP and everything was fine.

Regards, KM

Not surprising. MDF is baked dough.

Also very interested to hear how the bamboo works out. I did the Moose BVRs in solid red oak which is pretty hard stuff (and somewhat hard to work with too). However, despite lots of internal bracing they still flex a bit. My simple non-scientific method is placing a glass of red wine on the top with music playing.... (okay, late in the evening after a nice meal and finishing the rest of a great Chianti). You can see the sound create ripples in the surface of the wine ;-)

Regards, KM

Hi kmaier, oddly enough, despite having an almost identical name, they seem to be different hardware, different software. But you are lucky because you got the better (albeit more expensive) one.

At one time S&L did provide the WT2 to Parts Express. I'm not sure but I assume PE figured they could make an extra nickel per unit by knocking it off, hence the non-S&L WT3 . . .

Hmm, Red Oak is at least as 'stiff' (MOE rating) as BB ply, so the cab's Fs should be well above its passband. Factor in this small a driver plus limited Xmax can't generate enough acoustic pressure in a BVR to excite it enough to matter has me wondering what's causing high enough amplitude, 'low' frequencies to vibrate a 'massive' glass of wine.

FWIW, I stand on end a square edged enough coin and as long as it doesn't dance around or topple at the highest typical average SPL of a pipe organ symphony, the cab's sufficiently non-resonant.
