I have yet to decide. A few betas could still be accomodated.

I've been lazy - just been listening

I've just got to rewire the driver and decide on a finish and I think I'm done. Maybe use a Deflex panel in the back and see what that does.

I'm in for a minor op on tuesday so I've got another excuse to sit and listen

Hey Dave, how are your pair coming along? Are there any other Beta's out there? Would love to hear someone else's take on the Emken

Hey guys, I would be very interested in doing a beta but I haven't put my hand up until now because I can't even begin until the middle of May, which means they wouldn't be finished until the end of May at best. If this is not a problem, then sign me up!

I would plan to make with the Beta12LTA, then try with the Fane and then the Eminence Beta12CX coaxial, which looks not a million miles away from the LTA's physical specs. I would love to find a compact-ish cabinet for this driver.

Cheers,
blakk

Yeah, could be good cheap fun if it works in the LTA emken (or variation thereof).

Beta 12LTA in a 3cf box - port size

blakk, i think you can stick a beta 12lta in a small sealed box even smaller than i did (1.75cf) and partner with a sub for great results. This box will probably hit 75hz without trouble and provide a highly efficient solution. I've since been enjoying it on an OB (where it makes it to about 150hz) partnered with H-frames. The other drivers you mention will also likely work great in small sealed boxes (as part of a system with bass support). These 12" drivers offer a more lifelike sound than the smaller full rangers many love... it's like driving a V8 for a while then going back to a V4... you become accustomed to the effortless power. The coax driver looks like a neat idea but some have nixed it for poor tweeter integration. I'd like to try it myself tho... but i already have the beta 12lta and it suits me very well.

I hope to try all of these 12 inchers in a variety of boxes, in time.

I too fear that the Beta12CX will be a disappointment but I so WANT it to be good that I just have to try anyway! If worst happens, I can use them in a pair of stage monitors for my son's band.

Cheers,
blakk
