Pjanda,
I'd like to try a pair of plain Betsy's. Planning on using the OB plans as starting point, with better trim. Already have subs using TB 8-740c's. Probably add tweets at later time after breakin and final bsc, etc. Shipping to 35210, please and how do you want payment, PayPal, Credit card, check?

I've seen some pretty creative things, and I think I've got a few takers. I may have room for one or two more. Lee and Katana, send me an email and give me some details. It'll have to be interesting with a good plan for public documentation to get in on the sale. Kenpeter, I'll look that chap up now and send him a PM.

Well this is neat. Great opportunity if I can pull it off...

Most of my stuff isn't quite "newbie". I also don't know anything about speakers or eclosures, despite my fascination with amplifiers.

I can't do enclosures, but as for amplifiers I think I've got a really good idea... wait for my PM.

Keantoken, it doesn't have to be simple! You might enjoy learning to use MJK's Mathcad worksheets if the $25 is in your budget. Horn Response is mighty fun as well, and can do some interesting things. Another option would be to work on a balance of amplifier output impedance with an open baffle or open backed cabinet to either extend the response deeper or get by with a smaller baffle than might be typical. Finally, depending on your aesthetic preferences, you might be able to apply some creativity to converting a preexisting structure into a speaker. Just thoughts. . .

I wonder why. I know those in Hong Kong get dinged, but i don't pay anything extra, USA=Canada+International as far as fees go.

I want a simple, versatile design that is compatible with a wide range of drivers, even a versatile crossover for a 2-way setup. Simple is the key. I live in the city and have no garage, therefore my projects must not involve power tools and test insturments. I second the Ikea idea.

Was it really that good, Tinitus? Well, what can I say...

Well, I'm not sure whether or not a idea is for noobs or not.

My idea is a little more complex than the chip/popcorn amps. Rather, it is a small step up, which is then a better compromise between performance and part count, simplicity and ease of construction. The one who builds it should at least be able to make/buy and solder PCB's, as well as mounting a heatsink with thermal paste. I think is is perfect for someone who is new to electronics but has built a few things but still wants a better amplifier.

Sorry keantoken, I just thought it was funny you started with "I know nothing about speakers..."

But as Paul says, what would make your post make more sens is hidden to us, in PM to Paul

Anyway, if your suggestion is to build special amp with some sort of integrated EQ dedicated to Betsy, then you might do better than any of us
But caution, I would not AD lowend EQ to such driver
But might be a good idea if you can take away some of the topend nonlinearity
But thats your show
Good luck
