that design is good if you want surreal sound. It cant be that great for precise imaging though right?

I did that with my AN cast 8's...switch them to back of cab and overall much better. Your cabs are producing different properties compared to the AN benal 2.8 cab design. (the one with the 2 x 3 inch ports).

pictures arent poofing out Dave....THEY"RE NOT POOFING OUT DAVE!!!!!!!!

...you and Chris..I swear...

Colin's uses the older A10, not 10.2 (which will be better all round)

Adds a resistance (damping) to the vent, broadening it, pushing the box towards aperiodic, and making it more tolerent of dynamic changes in the T/S.

which design?

If you mean the Castle microtower, or for that matter any multi-driver system with at least one firing up or rearwards, the "imaging" (depending on how you define / qualify the term) can vary depending on placement in respect of reflecting boundary surfaces

could you clarify that?

I notice myself that sometimes a quick external link doesn't always do what you'd like - but I get over it.

yea...that type


could you clarify that?

reason why is that when i set on build the AN's, the cabs offered showed the same speaker placement as the castles. I built them, but didnt like the way the sound was bouncing all around. I was also debating if I placed the speakers in a front and back arrangment...maybe that could help with BSC...thinking that the front and rear waves would meet in the middle of the cab, and provide better bass responce from the front. So, I did it and it seems to have worked. But i couldnt test anything out due to lack of brain activity in the area of speaker testing.


I notice myself that sometimes a quick external link doesn't always do what you'd like - but I get over it.
I can't get over it, Im addicted to poofing.

One more question...why dont the ports on the castle extend down more...to the floor?
