The original intention was that this would be another stab at a "mini" PA with hifi pretensions... from James feedback we have at least the hifi pretensions covered -- and the driver can't help but get better with treatment. Need to find a complementary bass driver for it that can be fitted in a simlar footprint box forPA use.

Zilla's comments on the 12LTA goosed me to move on the project. I have just found where my set were hiding and we will be doingour own build. I have phase plugs and will be using the Foster tweeter that came in the RadioShack tweeter pod.

I am undecided but there will likely be a token fee for plans, althou we could stand a couple more betas (for the boxes and the plans) before they become officially available. Serious inquiries only please.

As an added bonus, it looks like it can be easily converted into something like Econowave project. That is, only if you don't like it as it is. Just keep another (external) crossover and waveguide handy, it could be quickly converted from one type to another

Too right. The phase plug is a start and I'd be interested in the 'enable' process for them. They are hifi enough for me at the moment

But I would REALLY love to use the 2 Beta15's and plate amps I have tucked away. I was thinking a single unit with opposing drivers with an amp each tuned to taste.

When I'm back from the US I'll be hiring a venue to run em LOUD - I'll let you know how they do as a PA

Last pic shows them as they are at the moment. They've been lined with wadded cotton. I've yet to cut the corners of the tops & bases - gotta get its done but listening is getting in the way

can you post up some further details on this entire project? i am currently planning various enclosures for a 12" fane driver that (in a thread on here) was adjudged very similar to the driver you have used. i'd be interested in seeing stuff like predicted performance etc and the possibility of modifying this for my fane drivers.

i too have found the detail that my fanes (in free air) produce is very impressive, combined with what feels to be a huge sound stage, they fill a room without being 'loud' which is a very nice aural experience but currently lacking in bass.

Dave (Planet10) is the brains behind the operation. I'm just a monkey with a saw & screwdriver who happened to be in the right place at the right time.

However this monkey couldn't be happier with the result
