Default Visaton B200

Hi Guys

I have a pair of Visaton B200's currently in need of use, could someone recommend a cabinet, I would prefer not to go down the OB path as I would most likely be torn apart by my other half.

Plans I have seen include:

Solo 100
Solo 50
BD-Design - DIY Singular
Strassacker: Speaker - kits - do it yourself
Visaton B200 in bookshelf

Any suggestions on which way to go?

Ryan

Joe Rasmussen has an aperiodic TL that flattens the impedance to the point where you can use current drive -- thats what i'd go for.

I couldn't find it the last time i searched... you might need to write him.

Yes, that's the one. With phase plugs the B200 doesn't really need tweeters... before we did that it was one of the 1st things we thot about adding.

Ha I actually bought the b200's off Joe years back, I checked his website just before and he has removed the crossover schematic. The removal of the ferro fluid in the tweeter looks a bit daunting too.

Might give him a call tomorrow.

Default B200

Hello,
i made a few Satellite horns:
Trumpet, Schalmei, Horn
and a few double horns:
Saxophon, Posaune XL, RDH20

for me the B200 is a "best" fullrange for classic listeners.
