Default Flatter than flat. PHL 10" and Beyma 1,4"

I'm messing around with 1,4" drivers and I just built a box like this:

Measurements done at 2m hight and 50cm on-axis in our huge recording studio room, hence the great bass measurement.


I will use the loudspeaker for critical'n'loud and emotional monitoring in my recording studio.

Box is 80l tuned to around 30Hz. 10" woofer is PHL 3002. 1,4" driver is Beyma CP-755Ti and Horn TD-385. -3db @ 25Hz and -3db @ 21kHz.

DSP processor is Ground Sound DCN23. I can post the dsp settings if anyone wants to build it.

The sound is amazingly fast and "in yer face". Tight, deep and powerful bass. Stereo image is very accurate. Depth is amazing.
I was very sceptical to 1,4" horn drivers but they do deliver and very live like sound.

Pretty excellent graphs eh?

Rock on,

Wow, yes, most impressive. I am amazed by the depth available from that 10.

Where is the reference axis vertically? Between drivers or on horn's centre? Any lateral off axis graphs to see? 22.5-45deg would be informative. How much the dsp pushes the 10 inch for bass aid? Yes it would be very informative to see the dsp curves and maybe an impulse graph. Nice looking btw.

My speakers configuration is similar to yours,
ie

10" alnico woofer
B&C De250 compression driver
RCF H100 horn

all housed in a 70l bass reflex cabinet

I was able to get fairly flat too, sounds very good as well, open and dynamic. A worthwhile exercise.

I am currently designing and building another system(open baffle), trying to make the sound better than above system.

Happy listening.

Salas,

Microphone is pointed exactly between the horn and woofer at 50cm distance.
I will measure off-axis respons as soon as I can.
There is no bass boost to get so low. The cab and port makes for the lowest freq's. I have only notched it flat.
You can see the impulse respons above.

Cheers,
L

Is that a coated paper cone? Great extension for 80l.

Nice compression drivers. I have a set of the neo motored versions and find them to sound very good.

Step response is mangled. Woofer is severely lagging behind.
