I am glad others try out my design.

I use TB W4 1320 SB which has a small narrow peak at about 8 kHz. This is not a problem however. The 3 inch 315 SC is in fact more flat in the upper frequences.

Default Other TBs

Bjorn,

I'm interested in the original TABAQ (no folds). Every time I read in the thread about builders getting excited, they are using either hard to find or out of production drivers. I'm looking at the TB W4-1320SJF .

Is it safe to assume that a driver from the W4-1320XXX family would have close enough characteristics to perform as well as the ones that other builders are exited about?

I have simulated several TB drivers and the 4" i have "tested" are all fit. I can always check for you if you find a driver of interest.

Over time I have simulated several different brands.

The Vifa 3.5" should do very well. However I have not tried it in real life.

Default Folded Tabaq

Mario...
Here is a pic of the Tabaq with W3-1364SA.
The port is not visible in this picture - underneath the lower edge of the baffle.
I'm busy making some heavier sand filled stands from granite tile, 2-1/2" conduit.
Hope to try them today. Also, I'm making a baffle for the MA CHP-70, just for kicks.
Cheers
Peter

Default Grateful

Hi Bjorn,

Thanks for the information. As a beginner without the knowledge and the equipment to test properly, I depend upon the generosity of you, the Planet 10 crew, and others with the skills.

I stumbled onto the "Full Range" philosophy by chance and find it a noble quest that matches my personality. With a BK-12 under my belt, I'm ready for another.

Thanks again.

Standing on the shoulders of giants!

Thanks for the pic, Peter. Cool idea placing the port downward facing in front...as soon as I find veneer that is at least 2.5' wide, I'll finish mine and post pics and listening impressions,
Mario

Default Finish on the baffle?

Hi Peter,

Nice build. What is the finish on the baffle?

Also, to fold the TABAQ any changes made in dimensions?

The baffle is Rustoleum texture black -2 coats. I sealed the cut edges with wood glue and water mixture - about 50% each,and primed with cheap spray can prior to the finish coats.
No changes to the line dimensions, except to accommodate the 3/4" hardwood.
Have fun
Peter

There's no flys on the Rustolium truck bed liner. I use is all the time for baffles and particularly for plinths. Easy on, nice texture and quite wear resistant. To even out the sheen, I usually overspray it with satin polyurethane.

In my younger days we would say it looked "Tough!," or "Really Boss!"
