the best of both worlds: relative nearfield positioning, lowered volume and good overall sound representation in the bass and treble.
My room is very small (3.5 x 3.5 metres) and listening at low volume. Seems the "Metronome" that I look for !!

Could you (or any one) advise how to get the building plan/info of "Metronome for fe166e"?

Million Thanks!!!

Problem here is that again, the FE166E is not naturally well suited to MLTL / ML TQWT / ML QQWT cabinets -Q is too low. We can make it work, but be aware that you'll need a hefty dose of correction, either active Eq, or series resistance, to get it into line.

the BIB is quite nice i find, and since the frequencies you are trying to reinforce with the tqwt are meters long, id assume that a couple inches away from walls would be virtually the same as flush corner loading.

The BIB will only rattle china if you want it to, and its there in the recording, but what it does it also does with amazing texture and finesse.

These multiple bib threads are getting confusing.

For a simple cabinet the BIB is a good first build.

With a decent shop it should go pretty fast up to clamp time.
A sample build would be my advice... what we've been calling
a 'mule'.

While there has been a lot of text up to now on treatments for the
interior I wish someone would do a photo how to for that.

Hello pwan,

if you look a the Xmax (0,6 mm)

for me only a horn will do it:

http://www.hm-moreart.de/7.htm

a new double horn, down to 32 Hz,
with a 2 driver like the 167 AV at the back

free download, part list direct from me.

BIB excursion corner-loaded shouldn't breach Xmax until ~ 30Hz.

I don't use AJ horn; a) can't afford it, and b) don't like the interface much, though I don't deny it's a good piece of software. Depends on what cabinet you want. I've got some optimised 166 BIB simulations lurking on one of my HDDs -I'll dig them out. Not as well controlled as, say, Ron's Austin, but not half bad either.

Try to use Zigmahornet and modify the dimensions. I am sure it will sound more natural with bass as per cd recording.
