Hi again!

Been working on the cabinet design, and want to show you what I got so far.

speaker 1.jpg


As you can see, itīs a kind of "sandwich". An inner mdf cabinet and a front and rear solid wood panels.

Now the vent.

The vent will be screwed to the front panel, so Iīll build different sizes (25-30-35mm) so I can try different tunings.

Let me know what you think about or if you would change on that design.

I own the same driver and used it for some active crossover experiments a few years ago. I used them in a small closed box and EQed them for -6 dB @ 40 Hz.
Although intended for very close-field listening that setup ate power for breakfast and max SPL was definitely lacking. But within their limits they sounded very nice with very good Imaging.
I always wanted to put those in a larger box with a 12" woofer but haven't found the time for that so far.

Yeah, I did.

I like how they sound. Very detailed mids and good imaging, but lacks low end with a passive xover, even in a big box.

I think those speakers would benefit from using an active xover as Phase did, or use them with a 12-15 woofer. If using them alone, you will strugle getting down 60hz-65hz

The Dynamikks monitor 8 speaker, uses this same driver, but with a dopped cone. (added weight to help it reach lower freqs) I thought I could try that on mines, but Iīll have to redo the xover, and Im scared I could ruin the cones with dopping, and those are not cheap ones...
