Default Full Range computer speakers? Need help!

Hi all. I just put together a nice computer for myself in my man cave and I would like to build a couple of computer speakers to be used with a Gain Clone and a yet to be identified subwoofer. I would like to start off with these two items:



How do I turn these into a pair of transmission line computer speakers? Any help is MUCH appreciated!

Im building a pair of TABAQ maybe that design could be of interest.

More to read about them in this thread

Lautsprechershop might bee a good place to get some inspiration as well.

Hmm, a T/S max flat alignment is only ~4.135 L/77.3 Hz Fb, so assuming a 1.0 L loss for the driver and a divider baffle, then at ~9.76 L net, Fb drops to ~58 Hz, meaning the XO will have to do all the driver protecting plus the stuffing density required may 'suck the life' out of the driver's mids/lower HF. Better to find a driver with specs that ~fills up the box.

Loud is Beautiful if it's Clean! As always though, the usual disclaimers apply to this post's contents.

Is cabinet size an issue? If not, try


and download his spreadsheet for a pair of BIBs.

I built a pair for an old set of full range speakers I had and am quite pleased.

Jolida SJ502A, Squeezebox Touch, Paul Carmody's Sunflowers, Jeff Bagby's Continuums; Planet 10 HiFi's MarkAudio A 7.3 Frugalhorns and MarkAudio CHP-70s, Nola Brio Clones with a Voxel Sub and a bunch of others...

maybe either of those could help you somehow. I am not sure what the placement for either of those designs are, but both interested me enough to bookmark them on my laptop

There's a TL design posted in the CHR-70 thread, but I don't think any has actually built it. At 54cm tall, it may be too tall although the driver should be placed at about 20% down the line.

My CHR70 dual-chamber design is also in that thread. I use them for my computer system. The driver doesn't require any filters and I love the way they sound.
