Hey Mav, thanks for the pics, as I am a "visual" person as far as online posts go.

Keep on posting if you have the time

Cheers, Steve

Default Hey Mav...

Have you settled on the TL that you have documented in these pics? If not, I have some suggestions that you should consider before you build!

If you are set on this build, then never mind, but after 6+ years of building/ testing I do have some different suggestions.

Cheers,Steve

The first is a Beringer Cross over for the panels, it is D.J equipment so you will need to get a Dayton XMRF adapter for RCA connections, from parts express. very reasonable price and well buit. part# 240-438 and 240-428, which are male input and female output from the cross over
the second pic was a draft of my idea for my ESL's, come to find out that someone had allready done this before, i forget his name as my post was lost. Either way, i give credit to the idea, fantastic!
the 3rd pic shows alighning the panels for cutting as well as grinding to smooth the edges and remove any sharp edges as from what i understand is prone to arching. My father as well as Charlie overlooked this procedure.
some of the other are building the TL enclosure. Using one 8" carbon fibre driver in a quiet large enclosre, you can see that on pic #128. Charlie has now begun to flush mount my sub panel using a drop router, it made one heck of a mess, but was perfect. those TL's will be coated as well, it will increase the thickness of the box as well as dampen any resonance due to such a large box. they will have about 100 mills of rhino applied on the TL as well as my stat supports.

and now some good news, the stator that i sparyed is very durable, inexpensive, and i do not see anything like it. you can bend it, fold it in half, it does not matter, the material will not move off the surface or break or tear, so sometime next week, i will spray my primary panels and arch test them.

on my last note, thank you Charlie for support and knowledge, so next is................
to be continued.

i am wide open for suggestions, however, i have to use what i have allready and go from there. Look for the custom transformers bias pics soon, this is a post that should be "from start to built" and every thing along the way. if anyone has suggestions, please post. if it seems off post, post it anyway, how can you learn if you dont see diferent ideas?
kind regards. Mavric

a transmission line give you a lower group delay (better transient response) than a ported box would while still augmenting the low end.giving you a cleaner more open sound that mates well to a dipole speaker but without the bass cancelation effect that a dipole woofer presents. jer
