Hi,

maybe we can make a group buy out of the PA drivers. I can order them through my company and save you a little on the tax...and the delivery charge....

There are a lot of interesting drivers that are either very linear or have good bass or both, but all are heavy or not waterproof...

The filter circuit is certainly worthwhile to adapt, I've done quite a lot of tweaking and measuring/listening to get such a result. I'm more than happy with it myself...I created the highpass at ~70hz by decreasing the input capacitor value to 470nF....it makes sure the little drivers can handle a lot more abuse...

I'm very interested in your amp can I buy a kit from you?

are those kevlar drivers really waterproof?

Yea, the pcbs should be in on monday. How are your soldering skills? the tssop24 packages are a bit tricky. The rest is all 0805, sot-23 and soic.

Maybe some sort of trade - amps for drivers!?

Buying in bulk is a good idea. Have you thought about contacting P-audio? They may sell you them directly.

TangBand do some great small drivers. They have a new 3" sub and 2x3" full-range abs driver. all neo. I want to try out the 3" in a small BP6 enclosure with the 2x3 doing the highs.

Trouble is i can't find a supplier of them yet and Tangband didn't reply when i e-mailed them.

take a look...

Well, they're not designed as waterproof speakers, but if you do not subject the basket to water they can handle it quite well. I have given them quite some abuse... You should just mount them on the back of the baffle so the rubber surround acts as a seal.

My soldering skills are certified and I have excellent equipment (reflow oven, Mantis super magnifier and all sorts of solder holding pastes and super thin solderwire... I have soldered stuff since I was a kid.

Good idea to contact P-audio myself, I will do.

Trading a few drivers for amp(s) seems like a good idea! Let's arrange this through email contact.

I have looked into TB pallette before and found nothing that matched my demands back than, but as soon as there's more time I'll have another good look. Thanks for the hint!

wow, sounds like your probably better equipped at soldering than me!

Glad you guys like the site - PLEASE PLEASE register, add to it and spread the word! The idea is to have somewhere to upload and share your speaker pics where you can search, comment and rate them. You can then link to the pics from forums instead of using imageshack or similar.

Send me a pm or email about the amps..

Hey guys,

I have been changing bits and pieces on the design I posted about most recently... (Link to more:http://41hz.com/Forums/topic.asp?whi...REPLY_ID=12822)

And I am planning a bedroom soundsystem with addition of a subwoofer.

Still in for a trade Davey T? If you like I can also trade a complete filter circuit, I'm sure it'll make you like the SPH-30X much better!
