My own first attempt (no software used ) was transforming some cheap Aywa little surround speakers (3,5" woofer) into test speakers with an 83 X 40cm PCM-like box. The total length of TL is around 2,8m. Obviously, they are not perfect, but they serve its purpose and produce some articulate bass.

Have fun,

I will, in the end. Only issue is Time, money, girlfriend (in random order, that is...) Ooh ya, and a studio to test them in (also on the list for this year, the shed is waiting).

kind regards.

Unless you are wedded to the transmission line idea you could consider the 150 BMS 12S330.

Works in surprisingly small BR* cabs and a small cab = a light (and possibly cheaper) cab. Never simmed it in a T/L but I doubt it would be ideal. Functional may be...


* 60L for -3dB at 32Hz

Hey Charles,

Yes I did see it in a previous post, very good candidate for a BR version.

Thanks for the tip.

You mentioned not to opt for the Volt anymore "if you would build one again". Any specific reason?

kind regards.

Yea, I can get three BMS 12S330 for less than the price of one Volt RV3143.

Also they go just as low as the Volt in half the volume and two BMS will go louder cleaner than one Volt.
