Default Coral 12TX-50 help please :)

Greetings!!!

Not sure if I should post this question here or on the Multi forum but here goes LOL!!!

So a buddy stumbled upon these...new in box...no cabinets...I'm thinking they would be prime for an open baffle system...not knowing a whole lot about that setup, can any size work as long as the front baffle extends a few inches beyond the driver?? Or is there actually a formula involved with figuring out the panel size??

Thanks kindly!!!

Dave

WOW!!

Heavy read LOL!!!

BTW...what size of baffle did you use for your Coral's?? I was thinking in the neighborhood of 18-24" wide and around that 40" high...

Thanks!!!

Wow was quite a while back when we tried the various vintage fullrangers with that Baffle.. IIRC the Test plywood baffle was more like 36" wide by 60" high.. 3/4" plywood.

You test baffle seems OK though I think if you can go wider than 24" .. you should get better bass..

A couple things to take note of your driver..

Check the condition of the cloth surrounds.. the cloth surrounds sometimes do harden...

Do check the condition of the capacitor on the tweeter end of the Coaxial.. A friend of mine ended up with a blown tweeter because that capacitor failed..

Have fun..

Thanks!!!

Not too overly concerned with bass...have dual subs to take care of that

Just looking to take advantage of a non-box sound with these!!!
