Default Proposed new forum structure for Loudspeakers

What are member and moderators' views on splitting the Loudspeaker Forum into a number of subforums, such as (example only):
Stereo
Home Theatre
Subwoofers
Biamping
Car Audio
Other

At the very least, I think a separate forum for subwoofers would be useful ...

Thoughts and comments

Regards
Nix

Yeah, i think so too, at least 2 subforums for somthing like
1. DIY building/Desinging
2. Theoratical stuff/questions

Or:
1. Conventional (2/3 way)
2. Single driver
3. Subwoofers

I think that would be a realy good idee, the amp guys have bout 3 seprate forums as wel...

yes, the loudspeaker forum gets too many posts per day, it should be split up.

Thanks for enthusiastic support M, E & K

It will be a bit tricky to come up with a structure that works. Suggest we come up with a few candidate structures, then test these on the last 100 threads - ie try to allocate each of these to one of the subforums.

Think we should apply the KISS principle and aim to come up with just three or four subforums.

Further ideas???

Whoa, hang on a sec here. I like the consolidation one forum provides. Except for the car audio (for which there is a forum: http://www.diyaudio.com/forums/forum...?s=&forumid=38) all of the things mentioned are eventually integrated into the discussion of loudspeaker construction.

I mean, I can understand the desire to compartmentalize, but none of these issues exist in a vacuum, as opposed to the issues amp guys deal with.

In addition, it takes me no time at all to read all the posts of interest per day. I don't see how that's too many.

The tough thing is trying to find clean lines. I'll be interested to see, after you guys hash it out, what the suggestions look like. Cones-in-a-box and ESL/other?

I personally do think it makes sense to split the group up to achieve a bit more focus. I'm not a regular here, but I would be if there was a group more focused on my interests (horns and dipoles).

What would I propose? Let me start with a caveat that you'll never get a breakdown that keeps everyone satisified. However, an organization along radiation patterns does have some appeal:

Monopoles
Gradients (dipoles)
Line Sources (including ribbons and electrostats)
Horns

Just some food for thought...

I totaly agree, as suggestet above i think its a good starting point.

When there were more sub-forums jou would be able to find things faster and read all the stuf jou would like to.

On another forum (a dutch one (Gatering of Tweakers)) people also olmost always include tags in front of their topics, kinda like this:

[2way/filter] What X-over freq. should i use
(tags are made by the topicstarter so not evrybody does this , but is is much more clearer to find somthing of your interrest)

I think when we introduced subforums and tags the forum would become better

What about slicing the forum pie along the lines of:

Beginners' Projects
Intermediate Projects
Advanced Projects
What, are you stark raving mad? Projects
Get that bloody thing out of my house - Projects.
