Default WAF strikes again

Well sadly to say after discussing my plan to build the 208 blh, I could tell she(the boss)was less than thrilled at their size.
The last pair I built was a pair of large front loaded horns which sounded awesome but were very unattractive in our living room. She was a good sport about those so i decided to not insist on building the 208"s

Anyway I ordered 2 pairs of the css wr125s drivers so what ever I build will be around those.

I have seen the most common designs for these but have not made a final choice yet.
Any thoughts or comments would be a great help.

I have some tweeters on hand already if need be.

Maybe a pair of BIBs would do the trick.

hi kendt

personaly I would no bother with blh
not enough deep bass anyway
why don't you built smaller satelites waf friendly

I personaly would place fullrange on open baffle like basszilla
http://store.hifiauthority.com/olsherkits.html

if your fullrange goes deep enough, you can hide big subwoofer somewhere...or make it a table....very waf friendly

like Nao

or Dvorak

or Bastanis

Well truthfully I adore the idea of an open baffle mtm set up. I have a pair of 12"bass drivers on hand which could be either set up in a side firing box (to keep it slim) or a separate sub.

However I know absolutely nothing about open baffles and would have no clue what dimensions it should be.

Want to bet? Try listening to a pair of FE208ESigmas in the Foxtex factory enclosure or a pair of FF165Ks in a BIB.

125s in a BIB would be a good move as they've plenty of excursion. You'll probably need the tweeter as they're about done by 10KHz, but other than that you're well away. Jim Griffin's bipole MLTL is an excellent cabinet too. Bit different of course!

I have not seen the 125's used in very many blh's

I assumed they were not suitable

I am considering the various bipole designs, i'm just a bit concerned about their need to be far from walls

Oh they'll work in a BLH, no worries there. It's just a case of tailoring a design to their parameters.

Well i am likely not up to the design task, most of it is right over my head.

I did toy with the idea of trying them in one of the smaller horn designs already available but I,m not sure which design would be closet to the needs of the css drivers

Give me a while to think about it & I'll see if I can find something that might suit. One of these days I'll actually get around to designing a horn for the CSS series.

????????, Please define deep bass? Some of the BIBs get down to near 30 Hz, even my A166( Fostex FE166e) gets down to 40 Hz corner loaded and thats more dependant on horn action even if the first action is TL.
