Thanks for the info X and Zman,

It seems like the door is wide open for choices for the full ranger. I assume it does not matter if the FR is 4 ohm or 8 ohm?. I am sure like most folks, I look for the best bang for the buck, but in this case, from all the comments, I may be influenced by the higher quality(ie sensitivity, dB, frequency, etc) and hence the higher price tag.

The only caveat to the above: my old ears are not as good as they used to be, so may not be able to appreciate the higher frequencies that others may hear. tough decision!!

MM

So, the B80 are here too, everything is collected now. I could start, if... yes, if I could get the wood parts. I asked about 10 carpenters here in Vienna and neighborhood - no birch ply is available... so project is on hold.

The driver needs to be 8ohm to be compatible with the crossover.

Some people have used non Baltic birch plywood or even MDF with veneer. But BB is best for durability.

Hi X,

Is the Xover in the 1st post " Transient Perfect 1st order" dated Jan 11, 2018 for the 10F/8424 & RS225-8 Fast REF Monitor the one to use for parts ordering for the TL, or is there one for the TL that I am not aware of?

Same XO for sealed and TL. The BOM has a typo. You need 6x 2.2uF caps as two are used for the 4.4uF value.

Thanks X,

i must be a little thick, What is meant by:

" R4 is intrinsic to L4" and,

" R5 value 470m." and,

" S1m and S2m"

Thanks for the clarification

R4 is the DC resistance of the inductor.
470m means milliohm so 0.47ohm
S1 ans S2 are thr driver designations within the software.
And indeed I used 6 x 2.2uf per channel, 2 in parallel for the 4.4uf.

MM,

Example of an inductor with 1.2R DC resistance:

6 in total, for two speakers, right?

2x 2.2 uf for C3, 1x 2.2 uf for C1. For two speakers that's 6 2.2 uf caps?
