Default nearly run out of drivers !!!

only stuff on the shelf that is not earmarked is..

1 pair Audax AT170ZO 6.5" (big breakup peak, not suitable for series x-o)
1 pair Audax TM020J7 (titanium) tweeters
1 pair Jaycar 10" poly cone woofers
1 pair Eminence beta 12LT

1 pair Jaycar 5" woofer
1 pair Audax TMo2oj3? (plastic dome)
(might combine these in an elcheapo bookshelf)

1 only Vifa M30WO (can't think of a use for just one !?)
1 only Goodmans 8" Axiette !??? (thinking of adding bucking magnet and use for centre speaker experiment?)

Any suggestions on what to do with any of these??

hehehe id use the jaycar 10" and 5" and add a response dome tweeter and you would have a pretty kick *** pair of party speakers might have a problem with the woofer being more sensitive than the mid, but since they are party speakers bass heavy shouldn't be an issue!!! edit: is the 5" the jaycar shielded one, or is it one of their older sealed back types??? I really don't like their older poly sealed back 5" ones.... very ordinary sounding!! actually ordinary is too kind they were just plain awful

the 5" is the unshielded version of this one

http://www1.jaycar.com.au/productVie...=&SUBCATID=383

it is no longer available was CW-2101 in catalog.

Problem is, it seems to lack the mid definition I prefer, and as you say, it is 4dB down on the 10" poly CW-2137, and even further down from the Response tweeter. That tweeter isn't actually too bad, a tad peaky on axis, but very nice off axis by a little bit !

Consideration will be given.. thanks !

Hi Andy, that one you posted the link to is 4 Ohms. Is the non-sheilded one you have 4 ohms too?? if it is then when coupled with the 8 Ohm woofer and tweeter then your efficiency problem may have just gone away just pad down the tweeter a bit and possibly even the mid and it should be sweet.... also if you aren't enthused with the mid definition then if they are designed to be party speaker from the start then the guests will think they are fantastic and you can rest easy that although the definition isn't the best the target audience thinks they are great.

Tony.

the 5" unshielded is actually an 8 ohm driver ,

I will do some thinking about the suggestion though.

Build a 3 cubic feet damped closed box on four rollers. Install the driver on one side close to the top of the box. Place a mono amplifier on top of the speaker. Place a record player or some other music source on top of the amplifier. There you have a mobile music player. Move it near a couch when you read a book or newspaper. Or to the kitchen when you eat breakfast. Or to the carage when you repair a car. Or...

Andy keeps sneaking in more drivers and there's been quite a few speakers built since this thread started. I think he has a tree out the back that sprouts drivers.
