Dayton ps95 in a ml-tl?
Default Dayton ps95 in a ml-tl?

Hi all!

I'm trying to work out if this is a good idea. I've a couple of Dayton ps95's here and I was thinking of making a rather tall (1 meter perhaps?) slim ML-TL build with them.

I'd previously made a set of Abby clones and loved them, so this is the motivation behind the idea. This time I'd fold them though, rather that have such a tall box, and as I'm likely to move again at some stage (the abby clones are in storage sadly!).

Before I do all the learning involved to formulate a build plan, is this a crazy idea?

The PS95 was done more than a few times in a TABAQ, which is a thin MLTL.

This is a search for it

Cyburg's Needle is another option.

Its a great driver and one of my favorites. I designed a transmission line (figures are on a notecard somewhere) that went down to 80hz very well and crossed them over to a subwoofer. First time in my life I've ever heard "holographic imaging".

I've got them in a pair of Frugel-Horn Lite. They are amazing.

...I'd be quite interested to see the design. If you can find the card?

No need for a TL if planning to go down to 80Hz only. A simple 3-litre box with a small vent will do that.

To be honest, I like TL speakers for the sound, and also the fun of building something that isn't a straight up box. The easiest output is the least interesting to me, hence the occasionally ridiculous builds.

Lucky I can't bill myself for the time spent!

I love TLs as well, actually more like MLTLs.

That was my point, if you build a TL or MLTL, you can easily reach 50Hz... why limit to 80Hz, which you can do with a simple box?

Why not take advantage of the design and reach its potential?
