Default CSS Trio8 Recommendations

Thinking about this 8" driver,

Creative Sound - Product Details

Any recommendations for the best enclosure output (ported, tapped, etc?)

Thanks

I have them in a small (~15 liter) sealed box with a LT to 30Hz, q=0.5 and they absolutely shine. with the large correction not recommended for HT for even the Trio8 will run out of steam, but for music excelent. if you want it for HT, then ported or with PR is probably your best choice, or a well filtered TH.

Thanks Dave & Henkjan, Any pictures of your sealed box?

the tapped horn sounds interesting & i've been out of tune for a while, are you developing this tapped horn, Dave?

Hi,

The design that is nearing completion is for a pair of TRIO8s and the plans will be sold with the drivers. Pictures, measurments, etc. are forthcoming.

Default Any Progress

Just wondering on how things are going with the design? Looking at building, but being in Canada would like to use speakers (CSS) that are easy to get without high priced shipping.

Hi,

I'm waiting for Mark to send me the cabinets he's designed for a pair of TRIO8s and then we'll likely make a special series of kits available.

The cold weather and Mark's empolyment have slowed things sown a little.

I simulated a pair in a 55l vented box as a comparison. It would be worth building it as a baseline to compare in listening tests to any new "exotic" design: TRIO8 "Unhorn" Proof Of Concept - Home Theater Systems - Electronics and Forum - HomeTheaterShack

I'm also thinking of getting a CSS cube. Whether I would take this one, a 10" cube, 12" or maybe even 15", I don't know. And when is also a question.

However, Henk-Jan, how did you get them delivered to the Hollandlands? Direct order from CSS? How was the shipping? Or did you get them in a store and if so, which? Speaker & Co delivers the SDX 10 / 15, however at an amazingly high price compared to the canadian version (2.2x the price!).
