This is the discussion thread for the So you want to design your own speaker from scratch sticky.

Please use this thread for general discussion rather than the sticky to help keep it uncluttered.

Great thread, thanks for starting it! I am one of the novices this thread is for.

I'm hoping you'll include a section on phase, and what the design goal of a crossover is with regards to phase.

I also wanted to mention that I very quickly decided to go with an active setup. I do not have a drawer full of capacitors and coils, and the ability to change crossover points on the fly, as well as having access to live equalization is just a great help. It allows for a comparative evaluation of a single set of speakers.

Of course the cost of caps and coils is now replaced by multiple amps...

Yes definitely will talk about phase and active crossovers. I have no experience with DSP based so may need someone else to do a post for that side of things.

Tony.

I certainly won't clutter your thread my speaker building experiences were total disasters (except maybe for David Weems' "Wild Woofer"), I was just wondering about all the placeholder posts.

Well it's a work in progress. Idea is that those placeholders can get filled (or deleted). It's not easy to insert something later.

6L6 has done it with his build threads. It'a bit of an experiment. I'm quite happy for people to add more content to the thread. Just not general discussion.

Tony.

Over all, I think it is too much focus on box simulations, I have come to the belief that it is better to do simple/crude/basic simulations and then focus on measurements and box adjustments. There is just to much that is going on in a loudspeaker box and driver then what is possible to simulate
