Your project gave me an idea. The side panels could be attached to perpendicular screens at the rear that are covered with the same material as the back wall. That way, you don't notice them.

How much did those drivers cost? Looks like an affordable project with satisfying results.

Three post in a row, you're going to get the impression I like your project...

I'm in the process of reworking my open baffle line array and was going to position my side panels similar to yours. The only change I plan on is to add a ten degree angle to the sides--sweep them outwards a little bit towards the rear.

Do you have any trouble with resonance between the sides?

Hi, carpenter
The drivers are as follow:
B4N for the woofer about 21.00CDN each
Mid is DMNA about 40.00CDN
Tweeter is TN-25 about 9.99 CDN

These mids are really transparent due to the fact that they are run full range in the upper frequencies.

With the wood, wire I used Transparent speaker wire all around and connectors and x-over parts, I used Solen caps and metal film resistors, the overall cost ran at around 1,300.00 CDN which I think is pretty cheap considering the amazing results
cheers

As for as demanding more bass, using a RS sound meter i have a bass response to approx 125 hz, so i set my subs to 125hz so i have lots of bass.

cheers

Default Center Speaker/Stand

Carpenter,
I just completed a center speaker that also acts as a TV stand using the same driver in a reflex box this time.
One thing I noticed, either the drivers or the x-over parts take a very long time to settle. It took over 2 months to break in everything.
as far as vibration on the panels, no vibration at all, the cabinet is dead to the touch
Cheers

You have a sub...

Well, then that just about covers everything.

I'll have to remember to use a sub in my line-array system.

Good job, Dan!

Ooooooh. They look so good with a tan.


Did you ever hear the one about the gang of elbows, Wye's, and San-Ts that presided over at the House... uh, I think they were looking for the speaker?


ta-dum...

So, how do they sound?
