Is baffle step necessary for this design? The speakers will be SS driven.

Thanks for all the help and a great design.

I would also like the plans for this but everytime i try the link i get handbag websites, i think it has been hijacked, could we try again please or just post a link without linking if you see what i mean? regards, Nick

No Sd means no air movement.

I'm still trying to find a cabinet for FE127E's. Yep, I get bass to 60Hz -- at 60 dB @ 1m, but I can't get 80dB average at 2m without horrendous distortion. And I'm talking baroque music where the biggest instrument is a theorbo. Sure, huge horns would probably work, as might corner horns, but I don't have usable corners.

I remain steadfast in my opinion that drivers smaller than 6" are midrange drivers and need to be rolled off below 200-300Hz.


Respectfully disagree, a tube amplifier with the small Karlson with FE-166En (that I built many years back) gave chest thumping bass. The cone hardly moves. Kids now have them with a solid state amplifier and could not be happier (combined with enabled FE-127E for mid-high). At the moment I am listing to the FE-167E with an Audio Note push pull clone and am more than happy.

My opinion has not changed. I use a wide-range 4" over an 8" woofer. The bigger the wide-range, the more dispersion (lack of) problems you get.
