I only know because Godzilla gave me a pair and I took them out to measure the TS parameters. Nice 90.5dB sensitivity with Qts about 0.4 and nice sound. I can't wait to find some time to make the new 0.44x/0.55x FE103's.

I note the K-slot on the Karlsonator 44-55 plans is shown going to the top of the box with the note, "adjust as desired." I recall you advising against that with the .40x and the .53x. Your thoughts please.

I usually don't go all the way to the top and leave 2 ton3in. I find that this gives deeper bass and it keeps the K aperture a single piece. Simpler to build and mount.

I want to print a full scale drawing of the 44-55 aperture. My printer won't do 11 x 17. Can I put the file on a disc or thumb drive and get FedEx Office to print it?

Any suggestions are welcomed.

Use the "tile print" feature in acrobat.

Or hand draw aperture based on extents. That's what I do.

I'm old and slow. Please elaborate on the described techniques.

Actually, I'm more lazy than slow. I'm looking for the easiest way to get a pattern that can be used to cut smooth and symmetrical apertures on my band saw.

Print the image to a PDF file. Then use Adobe Acrobat viewer to print but select print option to print to larger full scale size using the tile feature. It prints many sheets that you tape together like tiles. Check scale with a ruler.

The other one is to use freehand to draw the arc from the gap to the corner. Fold it over and trace to make it symmetric (whatever you drew).

I'll try the former.

Seems like less headaches with the tile 'N all.

Yes, you can put it on a CDR or thumb drive and get Fedex/Kinkos to print it. They should be able to print it out full size, normally they have large format black and white printers. That's the best and easiest option, but will probably cost you $10 or so.

The plans are in jpg format, size 16 x 20", 96dpi, 226kb. Double check that you have the right file.

To print it 11x17 sheets, it has to be split in half. For 8.5x11, split in in quarters. If you don't know how to do this, taking it to fedex will be easier.
