OGIaudio - True Ribbon - Full Range
 
Hello,

I'm Tomislav from Croatia / Europe

Please see my DIY : True Ribbon - Full Range - One Way System

www.ogi-audio.com

I will appreciate your opinion.

They look great! Can you share any more details (without giving away trade secrets):

1. How wide is ribbon?
2. How thin is ribbon?
3. Neodymium magnets?
4. Field strength?
5. Is it one ribbon or is it segmented to prevent excessive motion caused by base frequencies (e.g. from subwoofer)?
6. Direct drive or do you have a transformer?
7. When did you build them?
8. Efficiency? Your charts seem to imply 90db (per watt?)
9. Power handling/ Max SPL?
10. Are these a commercial product? (Price?)

Once again - they are very impressive!

The table below shows the cm^3 volume displacement required to produce a 110 db SPL at various frequencies for a monopole and dipole with 20" wide baffle. No single ribbon described in the literature can mechanically achieve this, or keep Doppler IM distortion under control over even a fraction of this range. A 2-way linesource seems like the minimal full range option for <110 db SPLs @1m, 85db at listener. A 3-way line source seems like the minimal full range option that can deliver >110 db SPLs @1m with a few % Doppler distortion.


SPL = 110 @ 1m
Effective path difference D =508

Vp = Sd Xmax
Freq....monopole...dipole

According to Dan Wiggins of Adire Audio doppler distortion isn't significant even at levels of 25% - 50%. (Don't have the a link handy. It might have been on this site or another).

Thanks!

1. How wide is ribbon?
17mm

2. How thin is ribbon?
0,005mm

3. Neodymium magnets?
yes

4. Field strength?
I didn't measure

5. Is it one ribbon or is it segmented to prevent excessive motion caused by base frequencies (e.g. from subwoofer)?
One 2m ribbon

6. Direct drive or do you have a transformer?
Direct drive

7. When did you build them?
Before 5-6 years

8. Efficiency? Your charts seem to imply 90db (per watt?)
I didn't calibrate my measuring system so I don't know.
The amplifier on the photo is my work too, A-class 2x6W RMS with 400W input, and it is loud enough.

9. Power handling/ Max SPL?
For a ribbon speakers is fanny to talk about that.
It can play loud more than I need, quality and emotions that I get are main things for me.

10. Are these a commercial product? (Price?)
I plan to offer this speakers in the future, I have more ideas for improvements so first that.

11. Doppler distortion?
Doppler effect is something that I want, people don't understand this very important thing.

Hi Tomislav,

Is the ribbon corrugated? I can't see any folds in the close up picture but it may just be the picture resolution. Do you have any construction photographs or any close up photos of the ribbon/magnets/pole pieces?

Thanks.

No

Yes but I can't show you now, sorry.

What is it about the Doppler effect that you find advantageous in a sound reproduction system?

Doppler effect is natural thing, please stop thinking about it.
Think on this way: one mic. membrane - one speaker membrane

This is where true phase come in:D

What is the resistance/impedance of the ribbon??

Nice looking speakers BTW!
