    It seems like a good candidate to me, at least in the sub $200 driver market. Just wondering if anyone knows of any similar projects out there.

    If you mean a Linkwitz Transform, not sure I'd bother...or that it's an especially good candidate. A 2.5 ft^3 box would get you an unassisted Fc below 30Hz which should dig down to the low 20's in-room.

    Thomas, I was talking about the standard Linkwitz Transform, but those are some awfully nice looking speakers! I'm quite looking forward to jumping into dipoles.



    Well, I guess maybe I should have explained a bit better. My thinking was more geared towards getting flat response down to 20Hz in a VERY small box. It seems to me the DPL12 is one of the better candidates for this. In this case I was thinking of putting it in a box just big enough to fit the woofer, less than one cubic foot. Most people don't want a 2.5cuft box in their TV room. I think you could probably get over 100dB @ 20Hz with some room gain, a pretty good number for such a small box.

    Anything in particular that makes the DPL12 better than others for this app? I think a Stryke AV12 would be better suited.

    Could also try a Dayton 12" DVC from PE...or a bunch of others. Vd and Pe is what you're looking for with an LT candidate. Also, the less correction required the better.

    The reason I thought it would be good was because of the high power handling and relatively small amount of equalization needed in a small box. I've modeled all the popular woofers (I was looking at 12"s for

    Certainly worth giving a shot...it's a very nice woofer, I have four of 'em...
