A11ms drops right in. As always besides the driver — which nominally should be damped similar to A10 — room, room placement, and user taste play a role in the amount of damping under the driver.

Do XL plans need any modifications for a pair of 11MS drivers? I figured stock ones would be fine but better safe than sorry.

I find it hard to come by any wool felt here. What other decent options do I have for damping?

Thanks!


Denim insulation (the thinner compact stuff) is an acceptable replacement for wool iirc

Hi. Perhaps this is bad timing considering Dave's upcoming hospital stay. I would like the plans for the FHXL if possible. Tried to send an email,but couldn't figure it out. I have made the donation--actually for the second time, but I can't find the file. Sorry for the bother.
Dave,all the best to you,I've had a number of hospital visits.

Default terminal cup

Got all the panels cut out of 3/4BB ply, now I'm cutting the opening for the driver. Was about to cut a hole in the back panel for a terminal cup, but looking at how thin the plastic is, I'm afraid this will affect the rear chamber area.

Any advice, or experiences with this?

Regards,
Ted

it will not be an issue as long as it is sealed.

I don’t think Dave meant that the enclosure needs to be a sealed type, just that the mounting of the terminal cup is air-tight. Most of them come with quite sufficient closed cell foam baskets for that purpose.
