Hi God,
He says he is new to active crossovers so we have to assume he is.

Ooooohhh, i bet that sounds goooood! Nothing's perfect but your setup should produce some great sound. I wonder how the slimming baffle top changes the sound compared to a wider one? I also wonder how much better the bass is by doubling up the Alphas... I bet two make even more of an impact than one. If i had the room i'd stack two H-frames. So many great options out there now that we have software to sim before building. I can't stop thinking about my OBs... love the sounds they make.

I'd rather have your setup than just about any commercial product out there regardless of price.

Thanks

Slimmed tops give probably better perspective and less baffle step peak. Now i cross at 300hz with 24dB Linkw.R.

Two Alpha sounds 40-50% better than one. More precise, a little bit deeper and they can handle more power.

Double H-frames has been on my mind for a while. I have the new Fostex Fe203en-s ltd edition and daydreams about alternative consepts.

They sounds like Tom Petty: In To The "GREAT WIDE OPEN" (i am playing it right now)

I am struggling with a little to dull freq. curve. But thats the game with active xovers isnt it?

I'm curious how the Fostex 203 will compare to the TB 1808 on OB with the Alpha's... You've got a nice setup.

300hz xover seems high. How did things sound closer to 200hz?

Nice NaOs, although the panels seem to be attached to some big H-frames rather than the NaO U-frame. Are you building these gainphile? I really should buy a set of ER18s and get mine done.

No, they are not mine. I wish

Btw. the kit price at Meniscus is $1k -something. Is that right? Even the 4 woofers themselves would cost about that much!
