Default MrContent B200 OB's

Could anyone please point me to where I can read about how to replicate Nigel's B200 OB's? The tweaks, the dimensions, how to stiffen the baffle, stuff like that. I understand that there was a thread going on Decware about it and then the Forum software was upgraded and all that info was lost in the ether somewhere. Anyone care to chip in? I want to try something other than my Fostex 167S's.

Thanks,
Erik

If you go to Decware and click on Audio Forums, then go into the DIY speaker builders section. You'll find the "New OPEN BAFFLE SPEAKERS thread" on page 3 and the original 100+ page Open Baffle thread on page 6.. It's still all there, you just have to weed through it all.

It's on page 78 of the Open Baffle thread. Not sure of the dims,the driver seems kind of high to me. I think the magic width# is 18'' wide.. The sub is a ported push-pull using Vifa drivers that are facing each other wired out of phase.. Dave

No problemo.. If you can't find it I could "bump" it for you, then it should be fresh up in the DIY Speaker builder forum, just say the word.

Ok, I looked, but to no avail. The Decware forum has changed and there is no longer a DIY speaker builder forum. If you happened to have the thread archived I would love a copy of the file. The info you have posted already has been a great help already, but I would like to read the rest.

Thanks,
Erik

Yep there is a DIY Speaker forum still... I bumped the old OB thread for you. http://www.decware.com/newsite/mainmenu.htm

Click on ''AUDIO FORUMS" then scroll down the page till you see the DIY Speaker Builders Forum, the old OB thread is now up on the first page

Ok, I finally found it. A new forum: audiophiletalk.com

Thanks Dave, I'll be able to go with this now.

Dave, just out of curiosity, have you built a setup with B200's?
