Those values are from original crossover... I will change the screws... Thankyou!

Screws are out AND coils are glued in place!

I must say that I hear a more involving sound... more delicate and airy :-)
This is without sarccasemn... :-)

Thanks very much for that not to screw suggestion :-) hahaha

I am again so fastinated with the pure sound these On-Kens will celebrate...
Guess what kind of amp I got in front...??? You wont believe it!

A Darling with 0.75W/channel... YEEEEEEES! It works very very good!

For my ears in my 35qm room slighty damnped with furniture and a rug in the middle I only need the volume attenuator half way turned up!
And its nuff loud!
Heavenly made sound from this Darling tube amp!

All the best!

Very nice looking speakers!
If you didn't live at the other end of Germany, I'd be pestering you to let me have a listen


Question: did you simulate the cabinets or use existing plans?


Cheers

I live near Neubrandenburg...
I made the speakers only with experianced eyes ... looking at plans and photos and figuring out how the geometric looks of wood and build would work together...
Also no simulation...
I do have experiance with wood and building furniture...
But I do all my speakers on the livingroom floor... :-)
Now I have a Harman Kardon HK630... wow... never thought those speakers could sound so good!

I live in Stuttgart, so not exactly very close....
Did you measure them?
I'm quite happy with my Jabo 53 coaxial horns on top of a 15" BR, but I'm fascinated by the idea of a big coax driver!

Good morning, do you mean electronic measurement, what comes out?
No, I have no equipement to do those things...
But if youre interested in the physics I can measure...

Once I had an Isophon Orchester/without tweeter in a back half open enclosure with altec river and some kind of horn on top... very nice sound!

Maybe my next project will be similar to yours... I already have the Onken... :-)

But, my Beymas sound really good, homogener Klang! Almost one point :-)

And watts dont really make the sound... only maybe when you crank it up for disco... hahaha

I worked for 26 years in the Neubrandenburger Philharmonie as a french horn player... direct in front of the percussion section... :-)

The sound from the beymas are very smooth overlaping of frequencies... very natural sound can produce ... if harmonises with your gear up front :-)
Big sound from the speakers...
But I do think they need some grip from the power of the amp :-)
Percussion music like Xenakis Rebounds B... :-)
You need high volume to hear everything played... and the "REAL" sound feeling of the div. instruments hit... :-) much fun!!!!!
Only can be achieved with grip and volume... or near field maybe... but then you dont feel the big gran cassa concert bass drum :-)

Only AkAbak AFAIK; HR will just show the one big peak of a single large vent as opposed to all the vent pipe harmonic's peaks/dips.
