Default to build curved front panel Jordan JX92?

Hi
Does anyone made speaker with Jordan JX92 in curved front panel design?
I'm thinking to build the one.
with volume and port like MLTL-48 design.
Will it work good?

What difference does it make when the front panel is curved inwards?The front panels are normally curved outwards,are'n they?

I have planned to add some acrylic panels to widen MLTL:s.After some testing with cardboard the improvement is very noticeable.

With what MLTL design you do cardboard experiments? MLTL48 or MLTL31? What size of front panel you have?

I guess that with wide curved outwards front panel sound should be very good. So this is the reason to make me to want to build such speaker design.

I don't think the curvey array design is available yet. I presume it is concave like that either as a styling exercise or because it loads the mid-bass in some way, perhaps to similulate the loading effect of an even wider baffle.

I can confirm that adding wings to the MLTL changes the tone of the driver output, giving it more body. As it happens in the upper bass, lower mid, it would work with both the 31 and 48 MLTL. Placing against a wall has a similar effect but in my experience the 48 MLTL goes bass-heavy if placed right back into corners.

I am planning to build a Konus Essence clone with a convex baffle.

Intriguing. Can you elaborate please? What exactly did you do? Are you referring to those very nice triangular cabinets you posted a picture of some time back?

What do wings do to the imaging? My own take on GM's 48 MLTL has very narrow baffles (155mm/6.15 inches) and images superbly. I would like to try to get a bit more body to the sound.

My MLTL baffle is also very narrow. I tried adding baffles on both sides of cabinet and measured the effect.

Blue: narrow baffle (~16 cm)
Green: extra baffles > ~50 cm baffle
Turquoise: extra baffles tilted in about 15 degrees.

Hi Nardis

i just placed a couple of sheets of foamboard either side of my triangular cabinets to see what the effect would be. It gave the tone more body but I only did it with one cabinet, so I don't know what it would do to the imaging. I found placing the cabinets next to the walls had a similar effect on the tone and no change to the imaging, at least in my room.
