Default Sounds good!

I do have a bunch of high and medium density acoustic foam for treating rooms.

To maximise clearance between the wood and vent, the space directly behind the vent could be left free I could cut a circle out of a block of foam, leaving a ring of foam around the vent?

Sorry I keep bringing up the kappa 15s, I've been regretting their purchase for so long! They seem to be neither fish nor fowl, being optimal for neither tops due to their weight and size - I prefer 10" and 12" mid basses - nor for subs due to xmax etc...
I can't find anyone who wants to buy them and hate to throw drivers away or have them gather dust...

Regards, Ben

Hi salsburgsoundsystem,

When you plug the Eminence Kappa 15A into Hornresp, it looks like it wants to be a mid-bass FLH, about 85-400Hz. Think of a design similar to the Klipsch LaScala bass section.

Regards,

Default Thanks Oliver!

sounds like it would nicely complement the Dubhorns I am building for sub bass!

How big and complex a box are we talking, straight horns or exponential?

Regards, Ben

6 smaller boxes that soak up more power and are easier to move than a large one seemed the way to go.

Then I ran out of money to continue pursuing the project, so it is on the back burner right now.
Has this project moved to the front burner yet?

Hi Ben,

Look for plans of the Klipsch LaScala. The bass unit is roughly 2'x2'x2' (61cm cube).

Regards,

I think oliver has the right idea. kappa 15a's work best as kick bin above subs, and below tops in a 4way.

It's either that or put them under some nasty compression driver that makes ears bleed and make 15+1's and sell them off to the low end dj crowd...
