Default Noob saying Hi

I thought I'd chime in & say hello as a first-timer ...
I am:
  • in Portland, Oregon
  • utterly new to the audio-scene
  • fascinated by the interface of Art & Science
  • aroused by well proportioned horns

I hope to gain insight from your collective wisdom, particularly in the arenas of driver selection and cabinet design. Getting my head around designing crossovers is a long long long way off

Thank you.

Welcome to the forum!

Don't forget, in Portland there is the Oregon Triode Society that meet once a week.

Welcome!!

I hate to break it to you, but driver selection and cabinet design are all a huge part of crossover design...

My approach to crossover design is usually to make a 1-way speaker.

My point exactly!

In choosing a driver that needs no crossover, you now have a complicated cabinet. It's still all interconnected.

There are lots of simple FR enclosures.
