DSC_3681.jpgAfter some very successful listening session one close friend ask me to build a pair but a lighter one. I used Monacor SP-205/8. A lot cheaper and with a very good sound for the money. But... only close to the big ones.

The 1.0 and the 2.0 attempt of this OB was with the mid up near the tweeter. I was not satisfied with the sound of the mid and moving the mid way down improved a lot the sound. I didn't changed the tweeter position after that but there is room for improvement in the 4.0 version.
I will try three different drivers in the next month and I will post the results.

Eh ? What is the photo above ?!
Don't care to explain, please
( I was joking )
(say Excuse Me to your close friend )
I was thinking obviously to align 'em vertically.
Now it...sounds...like a three way D'appolito

If you don't get the MiniDSP 2x8 or similar you could get the NanoAVR + some AVR, then you get 8 channels with neat cabling and you can tinker back and forth as much as you want. Much easier than fiddling with passive XOs.

The bass driver offsets are way too much, especially the
latter case. Centred 62% across the baffle maximum.

The latter design most of the baffle isn't doing much at all.

rgds, sreten.
