    I need some 3-way design help. . .

    I was thinking of going with 300 and 3000 or 4000Hz for the x-over points, after much concideration, we may actually be going with the same setup I built a year or so ago (2 Hi-Vi M8a's and an XT25 in an MTM). I have my homemade circle jigs already setup for them and a crossover designed, so it...

    I need some 3-way design help. . .

    Haha, you remember those renderings from way back? That's great. People liked them before, so I probably will put up some renders of the concept enclosure. Ok, I will mess with x-over pro and try to come up with something. We are determined to build soemthing of monolithic proportions (WWMTM...

    Anyone with lspCAD willing to whip up a x-over for me? Thanks!

    I need some 3-way design help. . .

    I'm currently helping a friend put together a set of full range towers for his home. He well be using them for 75% music (techno, punk, metal, ambient, rock) and the rest for movies. I was hoping for some feedback on this driver selection, and, if it seems they will work well with one...

    diy fiberglass/epoxy

    if you goto www.fiberlay.com and look under epoxy resin systems on the left, then to decorative, you'll see it, its called "system three mirrorcoat." As far as making it look liek cheap plastic, I don't think it would, the stuff is clear as glass, and the wood still looks pretty nice under it. I...

    diy fiberglass/epoxy

    Would anyone here have any links to some good diy fiberglassing links? Preferably related to audio, but anything works for me. I came across this stuff the other day. Its an epoxy that goes on surfaces and dries glossy and smooth. Its the same stuff they coat bartops with. Has anyone here...

    The least you can do really is make a box, use that sub, just get a sub amp. The 100 watt one from parts express would work ok depending on the driver.

    port opening too close to driver/tube wall/endcap?

    I don't think it would hurt anything, but I'm no expert. Maybe you can go with multiple smaller ports. Is the option of constructing your own port out of the question?

    bypass capacitor..........

    So Chris...Did you finish your x-over? How does it sound? Did you end up bypassing the little caps anyway? Did it make a diff?

    bypass capacitor..........

    Well 3.3 and 4.7uF are pretty small, so If yo don't have the ordered, don't bother. You only really need to do it when you are dealing with larger values. My crossovers used 21 and 51 uF, so it made a slight noticeable difference. I used the Solens. But I only used the Daytons to bypass. I don't...

    PSB sub bottoms out easily - Modifying a commercial sub

    You could tuneit lower to reduce the excursion at the frequencies that seem to be bottoming it. You would just have to increase the port lengths if at all possible.

    My Very First Tempest Sonosub

    Yeah it wouldn't hurt to try it, but I don't think it would sound any different than the standard sono material. I still think it wouldn't be worth the hassle of ordering it and having to cut it right, cover it and build it. If your using a Tempest, then you will need no less than 18" of...

    My Very First Tempest Sonosub

    One thing you should think about it how the pressure in a sonosub is presented to the tube. It is much like magnetic flux along a linear axis. It pushes out in all directions perpendicular to the tube's surface and the force is evenly spread throughout the entire surface. So the tube will not...
