    Anyone interested in Brand new Morel speakers?

    I might be interested in a pair of Morel MDT33s or Supreme 110s. How much would they cost? Thanks Alex Kunec [email protected]

    Active speakers - using different amps

    Im about to build some active speakers and use a Bryston 4B to power the mids and a adcom to power the tweeter. Now, on linkwitzlabs.com it says "The amplifiers must have identical voltage gains" (for active crossovers). I really doubt that they (Bryston and adcom) do have identical...

    Im about to make a purchase from digikey so i can build some active crossovers. Should I use metallized polypropylene, polyester (mylar) or polypropylene capacitors? Im trying to keep costs down so can i maybe use the metallized polyprops or mylar as bypass caps or bass or something...

    Tempest HORN LOADED

    I dont know if i agree with u about the DPL12 being ill suited for horn loading. The reason i say this is because the LAB basshorn can use either the eminence lab12 or the adire DPL12.

    Tempest HORN LOADED

    Its difficult to put an efficiency on a large horn in 1W/1m because it has such a large radiating horn. 1m/1W is accurate in measuring 12in drivers, not a readiating surface of 5 square feet, this is why they use 1W/2m sensitivity. For the labhorn, they measure sensitivity at 16 feet.

    Kit281 Active Crossovers

    Im just about to build an active xover for my HE10.1s, but i need a little more knowledge on active filters. Whats a good book or website that I should read? I plan on building my xovers with opamps instead of jfets as it would be much easier. You mentioned that jfets are higher fidelity...

    Getting started with active crossovers

    What op amp should I use? Also what is biasing? Does it only apply when I only have a single polarity p/s?

    Getting started with active crossovers

    Hi, The latest active crossovers thread inspired me to build some myself. I went to this website and thought that would be perfect for me. $75 for all the parts I need to build and test 2 3 way speakers. However, I emailed the author, and he hasn't responded. So I was gonna put together a kit...

    DIY speaker builders: Why not go active? (long)

    I just bought a m-audio revolution soundcard. I have preouts for 8 channels. I was just wondering, is there any software out there that can make my computer act as an active crossover? Cause that would be perfect if i could use 1 channel for my tweeter, 1 for midrange, etc.... and adjust xo...

    Adire HE10.1 crossover mods

    Has anyone ever modified the HE10.1 crossover so that the horn tweeter plays louder? I read a couple years ago of someone that did that now i think i want to. It seems that the high end is alot quieter then most other systems i heard. Someone mentioned modifying a resistor value in it. Thanks
