Thumbs up Nice

They look very nice. It's great to get good deals like that and get something up and running again.

Hi!

Is it necessary to use speakers with a vented pole in OB (noise)?


Greetings,

Sladjan


edit:
Nevermind, I see you propose drivers without a vented pole.

I looked at SL's spreadsheet about dipoles and SPL.

There seems to be no variable for the drivers' sensitivity. So it doesn't matter?


Regards,

Sladjan

Infinity Buff,

Those are pretty nice. I once tried a pair of 452i 4" (90Hz -20KHz)coax Infinity drivers in OB and they sounded pretty nice when helped out by a small sub. I was actually thinking about doing something similar to your speakers with some larger Infinity coaxes and corresponding sized woofer from a pair of seperates as a helper woofer per side before I embarked on my FR/RS venture.

What are the approximate dimensions of your speaker baffles?

The speakers stand 50" and the baffle is 24". The bottom half of the speaker houses two ten inch woofers in sealed boxs. I replaced the top woofer with a Vifa and the lower with a Dayton Rs265hf. The dayton is connected to a Rythmic audio plate amp. The other speaker has one Vifa and one Infinity woofer. Eventualy I plan to repace the Infinity with a matching Vifa. This has been my first attempt at DIY and I have been thrilled with the results.
When I bought these Infinities about a year ago, I thought they were the best sounding speakers I had ever heard. I have been simply astounded by the improvements in sound I have gained by upgrading the drivers. Amazing! I have learned a lot from reading the posts here but I still have a ton to learn about xover's and speaker building in general.
PS. I also wanted to give a plug for the people at Rythmic. I had a problem with the first amp the sent and they took it back no questions asked and sent me another immediately. Excelent service.
