Default Seas T17RE TPX

I just ordered a couple of these from Solen. I haven't found too much information on utilizing them.. I was wondering what kind of enclosure i should make for them. I've had ideas from sealed.. to ported to transmission line... anyone have any experience?

I would go for a transmission line but i don't know if there will really be that much improvement over the bass reflex.

Someone here must have used these???

My friend has some Seas of the same shape and size but they are pure poly cones... in a sealed enclosure. They sound great.... but i wanna know if i can improve on that with these clear cones.

I've wanted to get these drivers for a loong time. I really want to like them... hopefully they will not dissapoint me!

Too bad they're out of production.. Solen only has 12 left now... if you want them.. get them now!!

Whatever you choose to do with them, there should be LED's or neon/cold cathode lights behind them so that they glow . A big glowing line array would be sweet...

Nice driver. quite good bass , nice clean mids.

here it is used with the TB 'eyeball' tweeter (also clear) in a tapered quarterwave pipe.

As you can see, I was still working on the x-o at the time this pic was taken.

I think you will be wery happy if you use the Gnurk design.

Laser,
Thanks for the comments. I'm glad to hear they are performing well... I'm pretty excited about this project... I have been leaning towards traditional ported design and i think so it will be. It'll be a small ported floorstander of 17 Litres as Solen's site suggests. I will post pics when it's doneeee..

basically I just cut each of the sides (12 each cabinet) and the matching end dodecagons, then glued them together. That gave me a blank cabinet into which I cut the baffle.

cutting the sides does require the right tool though !!
