Default Big Bass Ob

In some earlier threads I've mentioned this. Now I finally got them. Some pictures for sharing:

Front, for 3 x 18" woofers, overall about 1.2m wide by 1.1m high.

With drivers, two Eminence Sigma Pro18, and one EV DL18W:

Overall view (without mid-high):

53" TV looks so small in between these monsters. And this tiny living room is also way too small, oh well...

I'll need some more time and effort to get them work. To be continued....

awesome,

question:

why is it that your horn covers part of your woofers?

Partly because of the shooting angle, partly because the "suspension" is not completed.

That was just put on the frame, and about several cm below the target position.

The frequency range of those woofers is below 160Hz, and the horn mouth is actually ahead of the woofer cones by almost 1 foot, so I don't worry about a little overlap.

Very cool CLS! That horn makes the 18s look small.

Updates, divers are now all installed.

This is what it looks like from the listening position, which is only 3.3m away:

It can not sing yet. I'm working on modifying the xover.

These things scare me.
Are you sure the walls will hold?

Nice... but I can't help but think it's not quite big enough.

NurEinTier,

Do you mean the walls of baffles, or the walls of the house?

LOL


No no no, this apartment is really small. I won't bother the neighbors. Well, as possible as I can.....
