Default need comments on seas CA21RE

i want to build a speaker in sealed enclosure, and seas ca21re seems match my criteria, and i'm thinking of matching them with the sonotex tweeter.

it seems I am 11 years too late but a 2 way is a tough ask for this driver. large rise in F's at around 500hz is the challenge with the crossover.

Hi Henry.

just about to cut tge boxes to fit the SB23 in my test box. I am going to see how they work in a 25ltr box first. Bit of a challenge but we shall see.

hi Henry,

yes that was suggested on the SB thread. I have sealed the boxes and filled them with poly fill and the crossover is external.

A matter of fact I am listening to them right as I type. STUNNING. The quality of these drivers is absurd for what you pay. The SB23 is an amazingly detailed driver for mid range. crossed over low enough I feel they are better than all 8 inch mid/woofers I have used previously. They sort of remind me of a bigger version of the Vifa PL18po- No scratch that they are Scan speak level.

I am going to let them run in as with most paper woofers need some workout to get them at their best.
going to try some bigger inductors on the crossover to try and push the bass levels in this sealed box.

Hi Henry,

can't wait for the Satori's, after your done I can run around the corner and pick up the drivers from the factory and use your design as a benchmark.

What are you going to do?

regards

Jonathan

Hi Henry,

yes I have been following this thread, hopefully they will offer the whole kit here at the local distributor
Not convinced over the box shape but I may grow to like it. ;-).

I have been banned from cutting wood in my hotel room. :-((
