The sims show that a PS95-8 will work perfectly in an 0.40x scale Karlsonator if you have a single driver. If you want to try doubling up, put two in parallel drive in 0.53x Karlsonator.

I can attest to that. I've been running a pair of 0.40x Karlsonators using PS95-8's for a few months now. They sound great! A few weeks in I noticed the bass come in a little more as well.

Thanks for confirming Jwarch. Did I run a simulation for you at some point or did you you just try it and it worked?

Edit: I did sim it over 2 years ago in post 1318. Forgot all about it.

Those are really nice drivers I have heard. Give me a few days and will let you know. I'm sure I'll come up with something.

XRK have you ever modeled a Fountek FE87? Parts Express has had this on "Buy Out" for a long time for $7.99. I put one in medium sized thick card board box with some Polly-Fill thrown in (totally guessing on everything) and it sounded pretty decent. Wondering if it would be a candidate for one of the mini-Karlsonators? I already have some foam board!

Thanks,
Ken

X, I know I saw your old sim when I read through the thread a while back. I had also seen other designs using the PS95's so I figured I'd give it a try. I'm powering them with a $9 TA2024 amp off fleabay. The imaging is great and they easily fill our living room. My wife was sad that I took them to work.

Absolutely no hurry. They are nice drivers I believe. I've got one beautiful enabled pair from Dave that are in wall-mount micro-castle's for now. One pair of the used ones are destined to replace them unless your mini karls convince me otherwise!
