Very nice. Can you please explain how the XO can be so simple? Are you running the mid as fullrange?

NO, the x-o is a linked series, x-o points are about 200 and 2500 (iirc)

If you choose your drivers, especially a mid with a smooth response and roll-off, this sort of x-o can be very effective.

The idea is to choose drivers that will need little or no correction in the zone you will be using them.

link to 3-way linked series x-o info below

ps.. my x-o has an extra resistor across the mid as part of an L-pad arrangment, not shown in diagram.

How did you decide on that midrange? did you compare against PHL, B&C or 18sound?

Im looking for more midrange choices and Im very curious.


btw, Awesome looking speakers. Someday I will have to build an OB.

budget, and availability. Down here, we don't always have the choices you guys have.

Thanks, I think it turned out rather nice, even if I do say so myself

Nice work Andy. The Etone 15" are probably the best bang for buck OB drivers available in Aus

Honestly Andy! I am sick of you showing up my lack of woodworking skills, I am not showing these to SWMBO.


Another one to copy?? Clone??

Good work well done; sign of a craftsman!

Please show us your series x-over design, I have an OB in the pipe-line which is very similar to yours.

Thanks.

Interesting.
Who are the Etone distributors in Australia?
