Hi everyone,

It's been a few months... but I'm still thinking on how to put these 5" drivers to use... Would it be possible to use the 4" & 5" together?

use the 4" for the higher frets & 5" for lower freqs inside the cab I've build for the 4 inch?
(the 5" would be mounted on the side) or is this just a bad idea I should forget asap?

here is the 4" cab.

The 5 looks more open at the back.... Thought about trying it in open baffle?

wouldn't the back loaded horn described in the Fostex FE166ES R manual be an option?

Almost certainly not. For it work your 5" driver should at least have a Qts that is similar to the ESR, and in reality it is very different.
I remember that someone recommended a TL in an early post dedicated for your 5" driver. Much more sensible to use a dedicated design.

the 5 looks like it would work in a scaled "Karlsonator" - ask XRK971 what scaling fits. Greg B. created 3 official sizes - 6", 8" and 12" - those in the mini thread are scaled from the 12" model.

Well that's true, someone was kind enough to do the math for a TL. I still think this would be an option although a bit big according to the WAF, but I'd like to try and to do it myself.

I bought the MJK math cad sheets, but that's just not my cup of tea...

but I found the leonardaudio.co.uk TL software this morning. I did have a quick look but I couldn't find the correct data provided by the manufacturer for Sd and Lvc.

Sd=?
Qes=0.539
Qms=10.5
Lvc=?
Re=6.8 Ohm
Fs=59.5Hz
Vas=15.47Ltr = 0.01547m3
