    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...

    which capacitor for active crossovers?

    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

    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

    Eminence LAB 12 for HT

    Last year I built a LAB BASSHORN. Its too big so me to use now, so im thinking of taking out the drivers, and putting then in small sealed boxes. How would these drivers perform in HT sealed box, even though they were designed for a hornloaded enclosure?

    Shiva sub not kicking as hard as i want

    I built a sub around a shiva driver. its 100l and tuned to 21hz with a 4inch vent. I notice that when my friend plays his sub (energy 12" ported) it plays a lot louder. There seems to be alot more midbass and kick. I was just wondering if there is anyway to make my sub sound like that?

    Considering GR AV3s, here come the questions.

    I have built the HE 10.1s and the GR-Research AV1+s for my brother. Im a college student and not an audiophile in any way. To my ears, the AV1+s sound sooo much better. The HE10s will go louder, but the av1+s are plenty loud for me. The AV1+s just make you want to sit down and listen to all you...

    Tempest or 15"DVC

    THe only thing I had against the DVC is price, as I live in Canada, and it would be more expensive then a tempest, and also the impedance is pretty low, it says with the VCs in parellel the DC resistance is 2.6 ohms, whereas the tempest is like 4 ohms nominal. Now i was considering running 2...

    Tempest or 15"DVC

    Im gonna build a couple of subwoofers that will act as stands for some gr research av2s. Each stand will have about 75 liters of internal volume. I put either a 15"DVC or a tempest in each of them (sealed). I love output and i love midbass kick. which of these drivers would be better for these...

    Dayton Quatro 10" sub

    Sure 2 shivas can outdisplace 4 Quatros. But displacement becomes really important when dealing with really low bass. I only have 250 watts and I want to make the most MIDbass possible. When u drive 250w to a shiva with a 60hz sinewave, it wont be moving anywhere near 16mm. you would probably...

    Dayton Quatro 10" sub

    Im using 250win total for 4 dayton quatros. I will build 2 boxes with 2 drivers EACH. I expect that these 4 Quatros should put out a little more then 2 shivas, which cost the same amount.

    Dayton Quatro 10" sub

    Has anyone heard anything about the Dayton Quatro 10" Sub. I need a sub for music only, so low end extension isnt necessary. I want lots of punchy midbass, even though most of you guys dont really recommend it. (Im still a teen and love the kick.) I plan on building 2 subs each with 2 quatro...
