Default Line Array with silver flute and tn28 hivi's

anybody consider the silver flute woofers and tn28 hivi tweeters for a real cost consciencous line array.

i'm just a guy wiht an idea... my audio experiences are small, i've only built one line array,, and i loved it, time for another

lets see if we can get a conversation going on this topic.. it looks extremely appealing

i'm planning to build some.but a mini line.starting with 6 5.25" and 6 tn28's.if it sounds good i will expand the line-don't want to end up with 60 drivers if it doesn't work.i built a mtm with the 6.5" silver flute and was very impressed.

where would you be crossing over the woofers and tweeters.i have a bunch of the 8" i used in a powered woofer array.disassembled it as the thing was too big.i have been trying to use the 8" in a 2-way crossed low around 2k-didn't sound so good.

A little bit of math to help you out;
Center-to-center distance of 8" woofers is = 1695 hz.
That'll be your crossover point. (13560/c-t-c)

8" woofers X 8 drivers = 64" high baffle. 72" would be better.
8 HI-VI TN28 X 1.875 = 15 inches high on the baffle.
C-T-C = 7230 hz.

Fs of tweeter is 1600 hz. It'll require a steep crossover.

Not the first but definetly adventurous. Gilmore audio has a set of 8's and a set of 12's. No idea on the price of the 8's OB but the 12's is 20 K so i am thinking that comes with 4 mono blocks a x-over AND the EQ ...

check out dr.griffins white paper at

http://www.audiodiycentral.com/resource/pdf/nflawp.pdf

as far as i know,8" woofers would have to be crossed very low.maybe too low for those tweeters.
i hope more people will respond as i'm really curious about a line array with silver flute woofers

Not too low for a big planar. The one i am thinking of is able to run down to 500 600 hz . Its a Mid/tweeter planar. I had the link and lost it from a post somewhere in here. 35 inchs 45 and inches and i think they had 52 as well.
