Thanks! It's very nice to receive such an intangible gift from Papa. We'll only have to materialize it...then enjoy sweet tunes...

p.s.
I am being patient; Thus I won't ask papa when he'll post a schematic, but I already got an itch....

By the way, I'd rather wait longer and enjoy reading a nice article along with a schematic, than just schematic....

Papa, I hope you had enough sleep after the Burnin' Amp event...really great. I wish I was there...

While I enjoyed watching photos, and seeing all those material gifts that you and Colin gave away to people, I can't help myself but ask a probably notorious question: Could we expect to have a schematic/article of your Special crossover, or we better wait till Christmas? (if you are still in mood)...

I've built some OB's, but integrating the drivers is the painful part. I hope that a special crossover will come as a relief...

Regards,

Vix

As usual, there's a story. Over the summer Matt (Chris and
Matt of Kleinhorns) built me 25 different pairs of baffle designs
of different shapes and sizes around drivers that I have that I
want to try. The ones that I took to the show were #4 of the
25.

I started out with the hope that a simple universal crossover /
equalizer would do the job, and have been discovering that this
is not the case. Each pair brings a new adjustment to the list,
and since I only really want to do this thing once, I need to
continue building up some more of these baffle designs to be
certain that the feature set is sufficiently comprehensive.

So we'll see. It may be that a subset of this stuff gets out
by Christmas, but certainly not the whole thing.

25 pairs!

Thank you very much. I appreciate the effort. Most of us DIY-ers don't have the possibility to try that many combinations. OB's are great, and it would be a pity for a potential DIY-et to be put off by the bad sounding sample because of the driver/crossover mismatch (beside OB dimensions-but that's a WAF issue anyway).

It would also be interesting to know which baffle-driver-crossover combinations did not sound good, and why. That would save us a lot of hassle. I did one pair and was not truly satisfied because I could not get to integrate the drivers properly. Now I realize that it is not as easy as I thought, and may take more time than just one weekend... See a thread here:
Visaton B200+Eminence Beta 15=OB!

In the meantime, I am running the Visaton B200 alone, fullrange...

Best Regards

Default electronic crossover

Nelson,
I hope one of the options include balanced inputs and outputs. I am trying to replace my Marchand state variable crossover that uses op amps with something up to the quality of the aleph4 I just completed. I plan to convert everything over to balanced in the next couple of years.
Thanks for all the help
Don
