Default First Watt at RMAF

First Watt and Lowther America have a really nice open baffle project at RMAF.

The F5 was sitting front and center. Any worries I may have had about driving Lowthers with solid-state have vanished.

I did not go this year, but I did send my son Colin and nephew
Sean. The speakers are Lowthers with Tone Tubbies on the
bottom, all in open baffles with a passive crossover. A B1
drives an F5 which drives the speakers.

Very much intersted in. . .

By the way, do you have any drawing of the baffle/bracket sizes? If so, could I have get one copy of it?

I'm going to make a similar one, using JX92s speaker with an woofer having the following spec:

Nominal dia. 12in
Rated impedance 8 ohms
Sesitivity 100 dB 1W @ 1m
Frequency range 30-5000 Hz
Voice coil dia. 3in


Many thanks!

I'm sorry, but the show is over for me. We're off to the Stanley Hotel for some ghost hunting.
