10 liters apiece, sealed. Can be bipole or if front firing, place them closely, one over the other.

Best Regards,

Default 10 liter cabinet

Hi
Do you know what the sizes are that I need to cut?
Id like to put both drivers in the same cabinet if I can?
Thanks
Ron

On going experience with FR125 has me liking each driver in 4.5 litre (aperiodic) up to 7 litre sealed or aperiodic.

What Terry said about using 2, bipole or if frount firing as close as possible arrayed vertically. Do noy put them side by side unless you turm it into a 1.5 way

Personally, if the FR125 is to be run "fullrange" then I would prefer an Aperiotic enclosure as it tames the impedance curve somewhat, which is always a worthwhile goal. I suggested that to "someone" else recently.

I had wondered if you'd had a different idea and that influenced the decision.
Turns out we're evidently in the same boat...again.

Ron,
What is it that's confusing?
You now mention going out and buying "one". I thought you already had
two drivers, or do you mean enclosure?

Now I'm confused,
TerryO

You'd have to "double" all the cabinets for 2 units.Personally, i'd see 1st ig you can get away with 1 driver.

7 litre vented To make it aperiodic play with open-cel foam in the slot.

Sealed. Box size can vary alot.

4 litre aperiodic ->

Click the image to open in full size.

and the variation we built
