Default my latest project.. FR measurments

Hey peeps, Just did some FR measurments using speakerworkshop on my little bookshelves/satillites..

which consist of: peerless 830881 4" nomex phase plug driver mated with a Vifa d26nc-55-06 in a 3.2L vented enclosure, tuned for about 78hz. the tweeter is offset.

the front baffle is 130mm wide by 260 high

Xover is at 3500Hz 12db/oct linkz , I have a 6db amp side series attentuation on the tweeter.

Ive used the method as per claudio negro's guide , with the exeption of induvidual driver measurements.. i.e I did a Gated, on axis with accoustic center. Considering the drivers are so close I figured it will surfice for the moment..


Click the image to open in full size.

I had some problems with the nearfield measurement due to the phase plug, it prevented me from getting close enough to the driver, so i compensated by moving away from the port aswell.. I think this has had an effect on low freq cutoff as it is around 80hz using a sweep..

anyway I was wondering if anyone has any ideas on the big dipper at 1 and 8k.. it appears on both my far field (non gated) and gate measurments. I tried some slightly different room positions and re marking my points for gating. but it only lessend it slightly.

I also did a simple sine sweep measuremnt with audiotester and had a big dip at 9k again.. noticable around the very bumpy non gated graph.. the 1k dip was impossible to tell as a result.


so does anyone have any ideas, or hints on where I should concentrate on? , could tweeter placement have such a huge impact?

the tweeter certainly would have nothing to do with the 1k dip anyway so Im a bit lost. im quite happy with the rest of the results myself, it looks like I may need a db or so extra attenuation on the tweeter but from a FR pt of view i think the xover points looking ok

any comments, good or bad appreciated!

Can you change the length of the port or stuff it and run another sweep to see if it changes position.

I think we would all agree that we would need much more information then was given by mAJORD.

sorry ppl ,

no they are not flush mounted at this time, they will be when im decided on a baffle.

do you think that would make such a difference?

here is a pic of my dodgy test box tog ive an idea of positioning of things.

one thing that has concerned me was my need to do a 90deg port bend, something I did not want to do , but really had no choice to keep it a reasonable distance from the reard.. despite making the cabinet very deep

8000 hz corresponds to 2.16 cm: measure from the tweeter center this distance to see if it corresponds to something.

900 Hz =19 cm: does this value remember you something (inside cabinet dimension, for example)?

Regards,
Claudio

thanks carlos

19cm

almost the depth of the cabinet (from cone to rear internal wall.. around 17cm


also, almost the length of the port .

2.1cm only relates to the edge of the tweeter faceplate. the
flushmounting shoudl cure this .
