Thetubeguy1954,

The Corals represent a problem in many ways and I see that in people's faces when they hear them. I have heard other fullrangers and friends of mine have heard and own some on your list and feel the Beta's do something that others don't. That is not to imply they are better, just different.

I should define revealing as, clarity, speed and dynamic. I have friends that are panals only guys and they say the Corals give nothing up in the area of speed.

I forgot to say that I found the drivers in a junk store in mint condition and they cost me $10. I also found a single Beta 10 in the same store that I made into a centre channel for our HT, it cost $5. And my genious friend made the Beta 8 cabs for me in 2 hours. He is not an audiophile but just one of those guys that can do anything!! He looked at the plans and said " Oh yah, ok" and did it.

Default Another pair of Scott’s Curvy Changs

A few pictures of my Changs.
A great speaker with musical insight, I would recommend them to anyone, a fairly easy build with basic power tools.
My cabinets are 1” Birch ply veneered with Zebrana, finish is three coats of cellulose sanding sealer and wax, quick and easy!
Steve.

The drivers are fe206’s, not the first choice for the cabinet but I was keen not to use a tweeter. I had intended to keep things as simple as possible and use them with only the recommended series resistor. Scott pointed out that this cabinet design doesn’t need a BSC filter but I found that, in my room 1.8 mH and 5ohms in parallel tamed the 206’s rising response nicely. I was a bit dubious about the benefits of EnABLing but the results are well worth the effort, cleaner, smoother and more detail. (its much easer to do than to contemplate!)

Default Last one!

I’m sitting here and Christy Moore is standing at the other end of the room telling me to “stand up and cry like man” I feel very compelled to do so!
Thanks again to all involved in this great design
Steve.
Ps. I Would be very happy to pass-on the template for the side pieces to anyone in the south east interested in building the CC’s

Did you have a chance to compare your drivers pre/post eNAbled?
(Nice job!)

Marc,

First & foremost congrats on such a great find! I wished I could find a mint condition pair of Beta 8's for $10!!!!! I'm not trying to be a P.I.T.A. but, I'm a little confused by your reply. First you said The Corals represent a problem in many ways which you in people's faces when they hear them and then you say the Beta's do something that others don't. That is not to imply they are better, just different.

As all the single fullrange drivers I've ever heard or heard of ---{AER, Audio Nirvana, Feastrex, Fostex, Lowther, Seas, STAMM, Supravox etc}--- have their own unique sets of strengths & weaknesses, it could be argued that none are better, they're all just different. If you believe that then perhaps you'll understand why I'm having a problem comprehending what you mean when you say: The Corals represent a problem in many ways...

What are the specific problems of the Beta 8's? Do they reveal most other single fullrangers have more weaknesses & less strengths in comparison? I'm asking this because I'm considering buying a pair of Beta 8's in the future but, if they have many negative problems I'd like to know what they are, before doing so!
