Rear deflector/bass unit
 
I'm considering building the rear deflector shown here:

Frugel Horn v1 Maps 130307

I would make it the same height as the FH3 however. I'm looking at putting a woofer it, driven by a plate amp mounted in a separate enclosure. It looks like the internal volume of the deflector enclosure will be in the neighborhood of .7-.8 cu.ft. Any recommendations on a suitable driver for this size space? I'm thinking that the biggest driver I could possibly fit would be 8", and it my be 7" depending on the depth and size of the basket. I'm not looking to spend a fortune.

Suggestions?

Tom

if you haven't already done so, contact Dave via e-mail - he likes to retain them, and has many times more archived than he has drawings - that's a lot

Sounds like me. I spoke with him a few weeks ago at length. Will email him again. Thanks chris.

Suggestions to "tighten up" bass w/ CHP-70 eN drivers?

Well, the listening room is complete! I have the system in place and the FH3's positioned. They are currently placed about 18" from the corner, and toed in at a 45 degree angle. The speakers are ~8' apart and about 8' from the listening position. The room is 11'6 x 16, with a 7'6 ceiling. I have the acoustical fill in the front chambers (lightly), below the drivers, as well as having the V dampened as suggested. I'm getting plenty of bass, but it's a bit boomy. I'd like to tighten it up. I can remove the tops to adjust the fill if necessary. Any suggestions on room placement and/or fill to help? BTW, they're being driven by a 6W MP-301 Mk2 integrated amp and get plenty loud. Pics of the room to show placement are attached.
