Does anyone participating in this thread have an actual Danley Mini?

I know it was just a guess but I can tell you the drawing in post 34 is not how they are built.

I had two genuine Danley Mini's for a while and dare say their performance is far beyond their size and seemingly no matter how much power you give them they just get louder, their sound quality does not seem to change.

I'm just wondering if anyone has really duplicated one or has a real reference.

All the best,

When I first built these (pictured) I had JBL 2404H's in them. Now they have JBL 2206J's in them. They sound better with the 2206's and they play stupid loud, though not with the easy test anything rig in the picture. It's the best use for these drivers I have come up with yet.

It's amazing how physically strong these drivers are. When you watch the cone motion as compared to the sound output you just can't help but thinking they are going to break at the voice coil former/cone junction, but they don't.

Two of them on the ground have a measured smooth rising response of about 10dB from 30 to 140Hz at about 4 meters. I need to measure the four of them and then build about six more.

The 2204 sounds better than the 2206 as a direct radiator, but the 2206 works better in a tapped horn.

Here is a compact tapped horn. Uses two Eminence Beta-6A woofers. The Beta-6A woofers are little monsters compared to the previous drivers Eminence made. In the T/S parameters I entered 1.43mH for the voice coil inductance to reflect adding a 1mH coil in series with each driver. This was to flatten the response. Should be usable from 80Hz to 300Hz. Lastly, since the drivers are in parallel the input voltage should be 2V instead of 4V. I forgot to change that. I haven't built it yet, but hope to sometime this summer. just too busy right now.

Ah, how beautifully the orchestra sounds before a rain! In a dry sunny day there is no way for the instruments to sound this way!
