Greets!

I have no experience with Corals other than the few specs and cab designs folks are pleased with, so historically I recommend a ~worst case (large) cab with a vent that allows it to either be lengthened if tuned too high or stuffed with foam/whatever to damp it down.

BIBs are a bit different though, so the 'stock' BIB length/driver location with a ~265"^2 Sm (W x D = ~13.687" x 19.375") would be my choice.

Interesting stuff on all points of discussion. Thanks, Dave, Greg & Martin (I figured alphabetical order was best!). We are now past 1500 posts here guys. Time to celebrate...

Thanx for the report, Jim. The Hemp drivers get a lot of good "buzz."

Maybe I should build a pair using hemp drivers, hemp MDF for the box, hemp fabric for grill cloth, and finsih them off with a decoupage of pretty hemp paper. Then sell them to the hemp store.

I do live on Maui, you know.

>>> Note that Godzilla's overlay is invalid because he did not adjust the vertical scale for the red curve to the other curves…

I just lined up the 100 at the bottom and the 90 on the left. I put my ‘invalid’ chart side by side with the one you made, Dave, and it looks about the same. Close enough anyways.

Peace,
Godzilla

PS. Comments about the ‘tone’ in the Hemp’s midrange is exciting to hear about especially since the ‘tone’ of Fostex’s midrange is already delish!

Better lay in some Maui Wowie for that too (do not attempt to operate a saw under the influence)

If you didn't vertically scale one set or the other then the plots can't be compared.
