Default FlipC more info please...

I found this post awhile ago. Flip is there any way to see the pics and get more info about these? Here is the post.

I finally fixed my server to allow me to post pictures from home.
So I put up pics of the TH Mini Clones I built.


The tops are 15" wedges. Good for size reference.

Closer side view. Use 2 4 Pole Speakon connection on rear.
I received a bad batch of the cabinet paint. They took care of it and sent me a replacement. Here's is the 15" cabinets with it. So soon as I have time to sand the subs down they will look like this:


HR Inputs


HR response

The peaks at the 200 range are not there.
Cut at 42 Hz if using a 48db cut. If not 50 Hz.

(anyway to control image size within a post? Besides pic size.)
Screamer - whats up?
You finalize your setup?

Ha ha
I just found these pics AGAIN just a bit ago so I can put them back online for Screamer to. I have to wait until tomorrow cause I can't log in from home for some reason.

Also to note.
Just finishing up another set. These I changed internally and used right angles and no deflectors in the corners. Waiting on some hardware I didn't know I didn't have left ...
Give me a week and I will have it all up along with the layout's. Right now you can check out:

This is for the 2 I am finishing right now. 1 note. I didn't realize until I got the wood home that I put Height and Width backwards so I had to re cut some wood. Stupid me...
So they are actually 24" T x 22.5" D x 15" wide. Though I seriously doubt it would matter the other way around. I just wanted them to match the first ones on the outside.

No
I tried to copy the og Mini's to a T so I used the B&C 12PS100.
BUT since I can get the Kappa Pro 12A allot cheaper than that driver. I will be using it in my future builds. Though to note. Future builds will be 190 Lt cabinets vs 106 Lt.

I got the pics back up.
I haven't a clue as to what they were named. So if ANY old links are still dead PLEASE let me know the picture name. (some where generic time date stamp names on my computer some weren't)
Speaker Pics
I will be updating those pics. I got to finish off my new the Lab 12 reflexes tonight. Freaking driver bolts dont wont to go in. 1 on 1 and 4 on the other!
I can never seem to get those things just right. Any one got some words of widsom on them?

Yeah, use the driver as a drilling jig.

I did.
Then I put the hardware in to paint the cabs. It is Murphy's law for me.

And I realized I didnt post the HR
data back up. Will do that tonight.

Thanks for the pic's and info. Those cabs are about the right size I am looking for. Can't wait to get the rest of the info on these when you get them completed. I will be using the Kappa Pro 12A also. Thanks again Flip.

Mike

OK, guess I've have to give up my 'secret' of drilling a single hole and installing a snugly fitting alignment pin (I use long/thin cones shaped from dowel scrap), then ditto the opposite side before drilling the rest. If you still get any alignment problems, then maybe you shouldn't be allowed to 'play' with tools, especially powered ones.

Hmm, have never thought of using an alignment pin and marking the back side
and drilling from that. I clamp the speaker to the baffle and use a punch to mark the locations. This time the trouble came from the fact the B&C drivers are built like tanks. A portion of the accordion goes part way over the bolt holes. This stuff is stiff and doesn't give which was offsetting the bolts. I had to take an excato and cut it out.
GM - what do you do to keep the holes from getting covered up during paint?

Only thing left to do now is cut some more grills for them.

On a note.
The design has been done. The 2 I am building now are my second set. There is allot of leeway with the Mini. I am at work and do not have the HR data I actually used here but I have some of the ones I played around with.
Check it: http://worldconspiracy.org/speakers/...Mini-Clone.gif
This is a tad bigger than actual build. Which is 106+ Lt. Take it all the way down to 90 Lt. It is doable.

As far as the Kappa 12 goes.
Just drop it in. Play around with it. Use same layout. I am not releasing my plans for the Kappa 12 I am building. Least not anytime soon as I will have to build them first.
