Default LAT500/700 cabinet plans? ideas?

I recently scored both a LAT500 and LAT700 subwoofers these are the tymphani line array transducer subwoofers and I need to decide which to keep. supposedly the 500 is equal to two 10" subs and the 700 equal to two 12" subs. I need to come up with some cabinet plans for each of these and do some in room testing.

I see madisound is selling the LAT700 and has some basic cab info. but i am curious if anyone else here has played with these??

From the preliminairy data sheet on the tymphany site, Sd based, the LAT500 appears to be like a 12", the LAT700 like a 15".

The LAT700 has a bit higher Qts as the LAT500), but the voice coil winding depth and gap height for the LAT700 seem a step up in comparison with the LAT500. Both seem suited for a closed box, with such a high Qts and lowish Fs, I think that an reflex port might not even be neccesary to get decent low end performance. I think WinISD Pro could aid in your quest.

Best regards Johan

one thing i question about these looking at specs, is that each of these has TWO voice coils and not on one former. but each of these units is two separate drivers. so when looking at things like Xmax, is that doubled?

As far as I see, these are actually 6 times 6" drivers, with 3 drivers on one voice coil. This would result in 6 times ~140 cm^2 with each 8 mm of Xmax (one way) for the LAT700.

Best regards Johan
