Hmmm... The dipole 15s are not too inefficient.
It would also depend on ur amps... I like to use only the B5's attenuation and let the amps run full out.

Hello regiregi22, You won't see an official schematic for the B5 for a while, at least until production has ceased. Due to poor behavior of some in the world, when Papa was kind enough to publish a schematic for "private" use, there have been some who have gone and made clones of the design. They then sold these for a profit. Not in the spirit Nelson Pass was intending. Therefore, he has stated that if a product is still in active production, he won't release a schematic. Understandable if you ask me.

Peace,

Dave

Teabag,

How do you open it up to make the adjustments? Remove screws/bolts from the Back plate?

No, the top half opens up. There are dip switch assemblies inside to set all the parameters.

Yes. Removed the bolts and it nicely lifted off. Thanks

There are different drivers that might be better for one form of music over another, but the 12" driver I heard was great for rock.
The whole concept sound very interesting. I like fast sounding, transparent equipment whatever it is. I'm curious how the B5 compares with a good DSP based crossover.

You just have to decide what full ranger you want to go with.

Thanks Tea-Bag. I will keep that in mind if I ever finish my F5. The boards are ready to go. I'm waiting on my friend, the machinist, to help finish the enclosure. I may have to find an alternative.

I have a MiniDSP. No contest. B5 it is.

MiniDSP does offer a plethora of options, but if you want to cross a full range driver to a woofer, the B5 can't be beat.

Seems pretty reasonable. I will then wait to the diy component of the thing comes, that's why us follow Nelson's great inventions

How about something like Metric Halo ULN-8?
