and the usual trouble with xover

well, first time for me with instrument speaker
interesting what happens

appears like you tune your instrumenty first
and then finetune with the speaker
its interesting, and a surprice
I expected I would need music to adjust the crossover
but apparently not
playing bass does it
its quite easy to hear when it gets better, or worse
and changes to playability is very clear too

below is tweeter xo
just a series inductor on 8" midwoofer
and nothing on 15" woofer
well, I had plans of using active xo
Im not sure now

but the sound is now very close to what I wanted
good and clean definition of each node
but still some work to do on preamp electronics

and this time hopefully a better photo of the finished speaker
have to say, its quite nice to have in the room

well, honestly, Im sure there are much easier ways to achieve the same
or maybe even better
but I had some time to kill
and it was fun
hope you have enjoyed some it too

cheers
Lars

hmm, what can I say more about it

well, Im now playing better than ever before
and learning faster too
my two pre effect ''pedals' are now able to give me 4 different sounds, just by using their bypass switch
no other adjusting needed, once set properly
all 4 are good, for different kinds of music, and playing
each sound is not very different from each other, but still enough to affect how I play
so I guess thats ok

but Im not done with the crossover work yet
maybe i could try 6db line level passive on amp input
ofcourse pnly for woofer lowpass, and mid highpass

tweeter xo
I increased series cap from 4.4uf to 6.9uf
a step in the right direction
no sound heard from tweeter, as such
only faint hiss noise
but overall sound improved
playability and precision got faster, somehow
'touchy' stuff

allready thinking about a simpler 'version', with similar good sound

looks like this 12" might do it

FaitalPRO - Professional Loudspeakers Made in Italy

but a 56gr cone might be a little 'weak and ressonating'
