I have to say that this thread has provided me with so much inspiration. It's the most rewarding hobby that I can think of. I have built and rebuilt many speakers for the last 10 or so years and I finally have something that I am proud to show off. Anyway, my wife now actually regards this hobby as legitimate.

The top portion is Zaph's sr71. Originally, I was going to adapt it to an MLTL and started building it as such. That is how I arrived at the floor standing variation that I have now. It was a good idea, but after thinking about it I didn't want an external sub if I didn't have to have one. By using a sealed enclosure for the sr71 in the top portion I was able to achieve a system q of about .65 and still have 1 cu. ft. left over on the bottom portion. I had two Dayton TIT280C-4 10" subs in separate enclosures that really breath well into 1 cu. ft. sealed so the match was natural. Besides, it cut down on boxes in the living room which drastically upped the WAF.

The SR71 portion is powered by a Marantz SR7002 receiver and the subs are run in stereo crossed and EQ'd through a Behringer DCX2496 and powered by a Stewart World 600. After much listening and tweaking in the low end, I am very happy with the sound. The SR71 is an excellent design and I recommend it to anyone and the Dayton's provide a HUGE and tight low end impact in a small enclosure. But, like any other properly implemented sub, they need a controller, so they are not for the faint of heart.

The wood graining is an oil glaze. My father in law helped me with that.

Default Here's my actual setup...

Hi,

my contribution:

http://i852.photobucket.com/albums/a...orn_apogee.jpg

http://i852.photobucket.com/albums/a...orns/horns.jpg

D37 inside:
http://i852.photobucket.com/albums/a...n/dsc00166.jpg

I reduced pressure chamber to the minimum by stuffing very firm. I also build the enclosure more wide (31 cm) than the original plans

Preamp DIY with Phonoclone MC pre and 24 dB linkwitz xover inside.
Remote control for volume and source select.

DA also DIY (Crystall chip with output xformers)

Tube (Ella diy) for all about 800 Hz and Vincent SP-331 for the rest.

Still thinking how to attach the tractix horns on the speaker cabinets.
Now, they just lay on top, no mounting construction yet.

I like hi-efficiency speakers, sounds kind of effortless.
Only bad, my preamp has a little bit noise and hiss.
Guess I'll replace all cables with shielded ones.

Apogess are not used at the moment.

If you wish, go to my website: www.inlowsound.com and check out how I made a mount for my tractrix horn in the DIY horn section.

Default Yes, nice tractix

Hey John,

nice big horn. I guess something like you build, I'll do, too.
It must be moveable and stable (and of course, should look nice :-)

Thank you.

Olaf
