Hey MMJ - would you provide a hornresp record or screenshot of input for this little 1-12 kickbin? With bracing
dividing the 15.5" dim, would 12mm BB hold down the fort when kicked to xmax?

Freddi ,
Yessir, that is the split-path symmetrical Super Planar 1x12" cabinet ... We also have trapezoidal versions of these Super Planar tops/kicks , and non-split-path versions

Great performers and a simple build ...


I always thought that one of these cabinets loaded with a very bright driver and used with a big phase plug would look extremely cool and could make a decent top cabinet ....

If a person wanted to use multiples of them in a splayed array then they would build the trap shaped cabs ..


We have been working on the Paraflex variant of this cabinet, but so far the Paraflex type C-2D cabinets that have been built are just kickbins ( but perhaps soon we will have some Paraflex designs that are proven to be extended enough to consider a "top" , in fact Ty Cention is busy building a Paraflex 2x8" at the moment, and it is intended to be a top from 80hz to 2000hz (ultimately there would also be a compression driver to handle everything above 2khz) ... Testing will soon commence! ) ..

Post terms and bandwidth , notes

NOTE: When it comes to the Paraflex C-2D 1x12s and 1x15s by "kickbin" i also mean what some folks call "low-mid" .. ... The C-2D's cover a pretty good stretch of bandwidth from 75hz to 430hz but we will be working towards extending the upper response much higher than that in order to have a Paraflex that we can honestly call a "top" ......... On the Super Planar 2x15" and 2x12" cabinets we found that we could extend upper bandwidth using some simple phase plugs (so this also can be applied to Super Planar 2x10" cabinets and SP 4x10" if arranged two-over-two like our friend Gary built) .....

We found that USRFObiwan's 2x6" didn't require phase plugs at all and has no problem reaching high enough to integrate with a 1" compression driver, and we are hoping for the same with the 2x8" and 4x8" tops ..
