Default Membrane movement.

Quite easily the membranes are on the outside! They also move in unison, which allows the membranes too move a good distance so you get good output. I did wire them up differently at first but the membrane hardly moved at all. You live and learn..

Default 00ps

Put one picture in twice, silly me, it was late in the day, and I was feeling a bit rough. But they convey the idea all together.

Default Wrinex.

I hope you don't mind me saying, but I wouldn't bother with the 2.2 meter high bass panel. I built one about that size, and was very disappointed in the outcome. In fact it was no louder or better in the bass than one of my 21" x 24" planars I had built previously.

Hi Henry

Have you tried to arrange the magnets in rows or columns with a space between them? A magnet-wide space..
Then run the foil tape on top of the space between rows or colums

I think you will save 50% of magnets and get a higher output

Just a thougt;

What difference does it make if I have a odd or even number of colums with alternating oriented magnets

I am considering 5 or 6 colums with 800mm lengths of 10 mmwide magnets

If I only run the film between columns 5 or any other odd number seems to be a sound solution - foil will start and end on the same side of the diaphragm

Bent
