Still dialing in the XO topology, then we need to build up both an active & a passive XO that get as close as possible.

The Beringer is great for working thru possibilities but sucks when it comes to sonics.

One of the 1st trys had +/- 2 dB from 25 Hz to the limit of the measuring kit (~16k)

FF85K micro-Fonken is a great computer speaker, even without a sub. They sound very good, even with a crappy sound card.

Default FonkenFX

They do sound quite good don't they. It's a shame they don't dig a little deeper into the lower bass though. Simulated in a larger Fonken style box doesn't seem to help much unfortunately.

Another candidate for a Mileva style box perhaps?

or Brynn - with a rear facing vent, this can also make for a slim and elegant presentation.

Sorry I missed ya on the weekend, maybe we can schedule some rehearsals for the Dave's diy midsummer madness

I posted this earlier in the 225K thread, but what would it take to put one of these in the 1/2 Chang or something similar?

Four wheel drive was mandatory midday Saturday, so don't feel bad.

I've been keeping the fridge well stocked for just such an occasion.

225 specs are very close to 206, so i'd treat it like that
