Thanks

Trapshooter,

Actually the original design places the driver at approximately ear level for most listeners as is. Plus it gives you room to add a tweeter in the future like I did my 'Jordan with a Ribbon MLTL'. If you wish a little bit more bass, you can lengthen the port tube an inch or two and get a few more Hz on the low end.

Also you can still use the my original design and add a small base to raise the column a bit. This design needs a base if you have pets or kids anyway to make it more stable. Another idea is to just add a false bottom to the bottom of the column to raise it to your prefered height.

Jim

finally change th alpair 10bass to Fullrange

It does sounds much better.

More balance sound.

Right now running directly to amp.

Sounds promising.

Thank you Jim for the design.

Btw, the port turns out the same as yours, i miscalcualted the port

Jim,

i tried to put the 1.5mH + 3ohm resistor filter, the sound very muddy and takes out the clear and live sound without filters.

I put the filters on the negative from the binding post, by tie up the inductors to the binding post, then weld the other end of the inductors to the resistor then weld the resistor to the cable runs to the amp.

cheers

Henry,

Let me help you on connecting that baffle step comp circuit. It sounds like you have connected the two components in series and then in series with the amp to speaker side. The BSC network components need to be in parallel and then connected between the amp and speaker.

The parallel connection would be to: Connect one lead of the inductor to one lead of the resistor and then connect the other lead of the coil to the other lead of the resistor. Thus you have a BSC network with the two parts in parallel. Then take this network and place it in the path between one output from your amp and one terminal of the speaker. Let us say that you place the network in the positive leg (assume red). Then do the same thing to the other speaker. For the negative connections (assume black) between the amp and speakers just connect with your normal speaker cable.

What you should hear is a more balanced frequency response with more bass across low frequencies and less treble. Overall the response would be flatter.

Jim
