Thanks for the reply, 4pyros! This community is great. I just did a google search for the pyro musicals, as I had never heard of them. They look pretty awesome. Too bad they only did the 4th this year. Sadly I'm at work right now so I won't make it down to King of Prussia, but hopefully I can catch your setup at another upcoming event.

Hi all,

I will be building 8 of these this summer and just hope someone hear can tell me if 3/4 plywood will be ok for the build. I want to use higher power subs so I want to use stronger wood...any help would be great.

John

Default Maiden Voyage

I took this picture last year on the maiden voyage of my SS15 build. The subs are almost stock build with 4015 drivers and 50% compression plates. The tops are the HS12 with the Dpro12 and (2) D220Ti drivers on a homemade waveguide - not great, but decent. Biamped tops. We were restricted to 90db at 100ft, but you could hear them crystal clear a mile away. Right side stack was the same. Throw and clarity was amazing.

Hi overflow. What was your reason for doubling the number of ports and using two compressions drivers in each midtop?

The cabinets are deeper to accommodate the dpro, so four holes are needed to get the tuning. The double compression was to simplify the waveguide. As such, each horn only flares 7.5" vertically. 15" is a little too much.

Overflow,

Awesome looking build and it's very similar to what I will be building this summer. What are you using it for and describe the sound. I will be using for live sound mostly. Thanks for posting the pics and if you have any more of the tops close up that would be great.

Thanks

John

Anyone wanting those plans needs to message me their email address. I will send you the same sketchup file I received. It's pretty darned straightforward from there...

Keep in mind, I may take a couple of days to notice & respond to requests, it's still pretty stupid busy 'round these parts.
