Default Resolution - Sealed Box

Hi there Moondog, foggy weather down here for the last few days and the rain has been welcome.

Mate, I think you are right, in fact I drew up an enclosure last night, see below.

I have a few options for mids; an open frame 6.5" woofer (too much hassel I think as it will require more joinery), A jaycar CM2085 polycone, or CM2090 1.5" domie. The latter has some limitations I think, so I reckon I will go with the old-fashion CM2085 sealed unit which is rated at 95db so I will put a 1.5db cut on that also.

There are a few options for the high frequencies, including a CT2010 1" dome, a pair of 8r foster titanium domes in paralell (with the assosciated impedance drop at hf) or my preferred option of a pair of 4r vifa ring radiators XT25SC90-04 in series to give the finished speaker a minimum impedance of around 7 Ohms across the entire spectrum. The vifa's are rated at about 90db so a pair will make their presence felt.

At the moment I am thinking about a second order Xover all the way through from ~ 800Hz to 4kHz. That is a low pass for the woofer, bandpass for the middie and high pass for the tweeter. I am thinking about reversing the polarity of the signal to bring the whole caboose back into phase.

Have a good day.

What ever you do, don't use that POS sealed back jaycar mid.
That Jaycar tweeter is actually OK if you cross it around 3k tho and I would keep to single tweeter.
What's the 6.5 inch??
First of the Autumn rains are early and starting to put some of the Alpine fires out

Thumbs up Integrity

In reply to VaNarn. How do you do?

I am not interested in talking too much about t&s parameters Van. But I will explain how I came up with those figures.

I used my calculator, a good voltmeter and a good frequency counter and a couple of resistors. Rod Elliotts (esp) DIY site offered a helpful article on the methods and procedure. I can recommend it to all speaker enthusiasts, because it puts the back-yarder in the design engineers seat. This seems to upset a few would-be engineers for some reason? I mean, some arrogant individuals just label people like me - who present interesting information - that is a little out of the ordinary, as"Misinformed". I believe my procedure has full integrity in this respect.

If you would like to help me out, then read the entire post; go back to the second thread & you will read my comments on the accuracy of my own measurements. I am genuine and the results are actual.

I can assure all of you naysayers that I have a good pair of speakers here and that the t&s parameters that I calculated were as accurate as I could obtain with careful procedure and good instrumentation.

But the topic has moved on now. I am in the process of cabinetmaking what are potentially the best set of speakers I have ever owned.

All the best from Tassie.
