Hi

I have one Beyma 18 G550 woofer will it work for the HE?

Before I run out and invest in another one I would like to know if it will work out, another thing is that the Beyma I allready have is about 15 years old. I might have used it for about 50 hours at quit low levels. Will it match with a new One?

best regards

uwe

Hans - that's a great looking build. Glad you built them and like them. Please keep us informed of how they change with some driver break in.

Here comes an update after 150+ hours with my Ultras. I'm VERY pleased with the performance of the Ultras. I've becomed addicted to the smooth and open sound and the very powerful, low octave bass. I heartily recommend building or buying these excellent speakers from John (Welcome To Manzanita Audio Solutions . Open Baffle Dynamic Speaker Designs).

Hans, thanks for the report! Always good to hear back from a long time living with the speaker. Glad you like it.

Almuse, the attachment didn't work.

Default Nice to know you are enjoying the fruits of your efforts

Hanns....

Thanks for sharing your opinion of the Ultra build! Know it was a lot of work to obtain the GRS in Sweden.

I fear a lot of potential builders have difficulty believing how good such a simple design and build can be. And they worry about the intrinsic low efficiency. However, if you run the numbers and measure most designs that can really play flat into the upper 20's, you will usually find one of two outcomes.

1) The enclosure is the size of a double door refrigerator, or... 2) The true efficiency is similar if not less than the Ultra. As best I can measure, the Ultra is around 84-85 dbw. And that is all the way down. No roll-off!

Provide a clean 20-40 watts per channel in a typical domestic setting.... for most music, you have more than enough output.

Funny thing about the Ultra is the tonal purity of the bass. It's all most creepy to hear true fundamentals with out the usual doubling nearly ALL speakers regardless of design produce below 50 Hz or so. That is why the Ultra low end is SO addictive... as you observered.

Default Ultra

John, Pano,

Would you kind enough to point me to where I could find specs n BOM of the Ultra. I'd like to build a pair for myself.
Thanks

Albert

Albertli: BOM for the Ultra is on The best affordable DIY open baffle loudspeaker I've listened to so far. and the design/crossover is on the next page. The components at PE now cost $208... with the wood being extra.

Pano, John: The 20mH inductors are backordered at PE. Any replacements?

Madisound, maybe? I think John has tweaked the crossover since then, we should get him to chime in.
