The original design for the Karlsonator was made by GregB - so, a huge thanks goes out to him for the big one that started it all.

The full scale 1.0x plans are linked on post #1, but is below for convenience:

what driver size is recommended for the full karlsonator?

is there any recommended driver?

i assume it needs a full range driver, or maybe a coaxial one.

Freddi would have some good recommendations. I have simulated a Beta 12CX and that works well. You need a XO though for coaxial.

The preferred and tested design is either a dual 3FE25-16ohms in parallel for the 0.53x or a single Dayton PA130-8.

I don’t know of any 4in drivers that can be used in dual 0.53x without me running yet another simulation. I would imagine dual 4FE32 could work but it’s a guess.

I've drawn my own plans for the 0.53 Karlsonator with dual 3FE25-16's for A1 size 5mm foam core board.

See PDF files below.

NB: the baffles are 202mm wide (internal width of the speaker cabinet).

If using LitePly driver boards, use the baffle drawing below.

4x A1 sheets are needed for two speakers.
