Default Tang Band w5-1611sa question..

Hi all,

I am planning to use and make a bass reflex box with that speaker;
http://www.tb-speaker.com/detail/1208_03/w5-1611sa.htm
Last weekend I had a chance to listen it with a ~18lt bass reflex box.
The basses and mids were really good for a fullrange speaker compares to other ones (I have listened several full range speakers in the same place)..
However I felt some lack of treble details, especially for the high trebles...
Then I think that it will be good idea to add him a tweeter like that;
http://www.swanspeaker.com/product/htm/view.asp?id=23
Both of these speakers are good to me because theyre available in a local seller and already listened by me..
So...
If I use that tweeter will work with W5-1611.. What kind of crossover should I use?
These are my ideas,
- Just a 12dB/oct high pass filter for the tweeter works @15Khz.
- A 12dB/oct crossover works @10Khz.
- Or a standard also 2nd order 2 or 3Khz crossover..
Which is the best solution?
May you give an advice to me pls?
Thx in advance.

Hi,

Try crossing it over high to avoid any tweeter distortion.

You can try first order series if your not bothered about BSC.

To add some BSC a first order parallel is simpler.
Use a series inductor to balance the midrange.

The bad news is, I dont know how to calculate a BSC filter
So I will try just a first order HPF for tweeter (1u series makes ~15Khz HPF for this tweeter..)
But after the box complete of course..
Thanks..

Hi,

That calculator (and nearly all others) ignores the effects of driver inductance.

A stupid question;
Does the snubber on the amplifiers output do that function also?
