Micro Mini Desktop Tower Plans
 
After a lot of deliberation, I have decided to go with a single driver design.

Critera:

1) Small foot print
2) Good Sound
3) Nice to look at

This is what I have come up with, below. I will also mate it with a sub...

I would welcome your input. Sorry for the poor drafting :)

Do you absolutely need the sensitivity of the Fostex driver?

Maybe a CSS FR125 in a miniOnken? http://planet10-hifi.com/fonken.html

The proportions of the box look very nice, aesthetically pleasing. I prefer this taller shape to the typical desktop options.

I think an additional brace, vertical between front baffle and back, might be worthwhile.

The back of the box is not far from the rear of the driver, with the danger of sound reflections back through the cone - need some good felt lining back there ?

Thanks. I have to admit, aesthetics is a significant consideration.

I though about that, then I though it was overdoing it. Your probably right. I'll put on in.

This is a concern. I actually drew one on paper where the back of the box sloped out as it went up. That is front to rear 4 inches at bottom and 6 inches at top. Do you think that would make a significant difference?

PS: I've already bought the drivers, thanks. So, driver considerations are moot.

Be warned that you will likely get some colouration from the proximity of the side walls to the driver.

I am worried about that, but since I am not willing to go wider, I'll just have to see what happens. Thanks.

Do you think placing the port in the rear would make it better or worse?

planet10 14th September 2009 03:36 PM

Given the high aspect ratio, i'd leave it on the front.... if your desk is anything like mine....

Hmmm, yup. Unless your desk is wall mounted - in that case a rear firing BR wouldn´t matter. Things being what they are, a bit of harmonics from the BR slot might even camouflage as bass. :DUsing a 15" might help, if you can get one into that nicely shaped enclosure...
