As Phil alluded, there is now a false bottom in the cabinet, about 3" below the port. This gives a net volume of approx 28L. After I get the drivers burned in I may experiment with slightly reducing the volume.

* There is enough volume left below the false to consider fitting a ported subwoofer. If not, I concieve of sitting the whole cabinet on a box plinth, and then cutting out the base ... thus increasing the volume.

Anyway, first things first. I'll check out the sound as it is.

BTW, the port is 2" diam, 3" length, as per the Alegria Rosa design.

cheers

Doug

Default Are we having fun yet?

Ah second childhood. I'm back at the place in my life where I can kick back and enjoy my old and new favorite tunes. First homebuildt project was a sub to compliment a new home theatre system. I really enjoyed the build and subsiquent use but found myself drawn to music DVDs and ultimatimatly 2 channel music. Started to consider making a dedicated pair of speakers for music and then discovered "full range" drivers and this forum. Did considerable research and discovered and ultimately met someone who is well known to this communtity, Dave of Planet_10. Dave lives down island from me and needless to say I took advantage of that.

Default Even more fun.

I couldn't help myself. These new drivers are just too well rated to not have in my basement!

Default And now? Break in.

This is difficult, but I am finding a way to make the most of this tedious part of the process. FR125SReN's breaking in nicely in BIB Boxes and EnABLed FE127's in Spawn Family member>

Hi,

this is my open baffle with Fostex Fe167e and Monacor Sp-382PA, passive crossover at 200Hz.
I am considering this as a fullrange speaker
