    Hi guys,
    I just wanted to let everyone know that I'm beginning work on a new MTM design featuring the Stryke Audio SA071 7" woven glass fiber midbass and TA-W1 soft dome tweeter. I'm hoping to have a design finalized by the end of August, at which point I intend to release it as a free kit design. The kit should cost approximately $100 per speaker to complete, and will be intended for first-time builders.
    I recieved the drivers today and am generally impressed with the build quality. Though the camera doesn't capture everything, I've uploaded some pics to my website to kick this project off. I will continually update this thread and the website as this project progresses.

    Thanks for the bandwidth,

    Wow those midbass drivers look sweet. Any idea how this kit might compare to some of the popular ones around now like the ACI or Adire ones?

    Looking forward to your progress! If you could find a tweeter with some matching yellow fabric/dome, I'd consider using them and calling them Yellow Jacket speakers due to my alma mater, Ga. Tech, and having the school colors. [​IMG]

    Well Mark you beat me to the post [​IMG] . I was just about to start a new thread with my DIY Stryke System but then I noticed this one. I can't get your pics to come up for some reason? I can get your main page hayenga.com to work but that's it. Looking forward to your "new" xover design [​IMG] hehe....
    Here is a link to my stuff:

    I don't think those pics are on Mark's site anymore. I do have all the design info on those though if anyone is interested.

    I'll be working on the new designs i mentioned in the other thread shortly also.

    Robert,
    here are the Xover plans for the MTM design.
    woofer section:
    + ----.85mh------------ +
    |
    10uf
    |
    .1mh
    |
    - ---------------------- -
    tweeter section:
    + ----3.3uf-------4.7uf---8ohm---- +
    |
    .33mh
    |
    - --------------------------------- -
    Enclosure plans are here:
    http://www.stryke.com/enclosures/Stryke-TMM.gif
    The tweeter offset is a little off though. It should use a 1.41 ratio. Distance to one side 1.41 x the distance to the other. The distance on the shorter side is 1.41x the distance to the top.
    Round the edge closest to the tweeter with 3/4" roundover. The edge farther away with 1/2" roundover.

    ahh.. forgot i can't put spaces in html.... the branch with the 10uf and .1mh goes after the .85mh inductor. The branch in the tweeter xover goes between the 3.3uf and 4.7uf cap.

    Bryan,

    I had thought about a bi/dipolar surround, but haven't figured that out yet here. As far as the front goes, I'd try to stay away from the horizontal MTM for the center channel. It offers horrible dispersion throughout the room, and horrible power response. It's a shame that it's pretty much the industry standard. The design with tweeter on top of the two mids gives you much better dispersion.

    I'll keep everyone informed on progress here. I have plans drawn up for the full 7 channel system that I will be producing soon. I'll give out the plans for anyone who wants to build their own also.

  13. Hey John,

    Any estimate on how much (not including shipping) for your surround speaker pair with an MDF flat? Just shopping for the 2 rearsurrounds for a 7.1 system (which I hope to upgrade to in a few months)

    Thanks

    Anthony,

    The flat kit will be about $130 for the pair of them. The 7" drivers are $14.95 each on sale yet, tweeters are $7 on sale yet. Xover parts I'm not positive on yet. Probably about $30 for the pair.

    So total about $205 including cabinet flats. It'll go up a little once the drivers aren't onsale anymore.

    John

    Cam, The thread is from a long time ago and they aren't on the site there anymore. Sometime next week I'll have some pics of the new 7 channel system to post, as well as all the enclosure and Xover info. Hang in there and I'll let you know when I get them all ready to go.
