Re: Simplex for Guitar FRFR use with Celestion F12-X200

Thanks for the clarification Bill, XF212 it will be then. The Eminance Beta 12 CX + ASD 1001 + crossover is more expensive than a Celestion F12-X200 here on the old continent... I already purchased the XF212 plan and have experience building one, so I will build a new one with a closed back and 30mm...

Re: Simplex for Guitar FRFR use with Celestion F12-X200

Was looking (again) at the different designs and I noticed that the performance of the Simplexx design is rated as 5, while the performance of the XFX design is rated as 9. What does this exactly mean ? As the Celestion F12-X200 is not the most efficient speaker (97dB), I'm in doubt again to rebuild...

Re: On Board Amp

I had a Dayton Audio PPA800DSP briefly and returned it. The amount of "base" hiss makes it totally unusable in any situation where you cannot turn the volume up (like at home). It gets very quickly very annoying if you are not playing at reasonably loud volume. I replaced it with a MiniDSP PWR-ICE12...

Re: Simplex for Guitar FRFR use with Celestion F12-X200

Thx Bill! May I ask what is the reason why it is unsuitable for a ported cabinet ? And before I order... Your site doesn't mention a sealed design for the Simplexx Wedge, it does mention this for other Simplexx designs. Is a sealed version included in the Simplex Wedge plan or should I just build it...

Re: Simplex for Guitar FRFR use with Celestion F12-X200

I have an PWR-ICE125 from minidsp to drive the speaker, want to build that into the cabinet:

Re: Simplex for Guitar FRFR use with Celestion F12-X200

Hi, its been a long while, but I have the Thiele parameters now for the Celestion F12-X200. I have attached them. Celestion itself recommends a bass-reflex cabinet and provides a plan here: https://celestion.com/speakerworld/irs/220/BUILD_THIS:_F12-X200_1x12_Cabinet_Design/ I have tried the F12-X200...

Re: XF212 with full range speakers ?

Just for future reference, the Celestion F12-X200 will not fit the XF212 as it is deeper than the usual Celestion speakers.

Re: Simplex for Guitar FRFR use with Celestion F12-X200

Sorry Bill, didn't understand the first time what you meant with T/S and had to look it up.
Sent a mail to Dr Decibel (Celestion) to ask for the Thiele/Small parameters, let's see if we get any reply....

Re: Simplex for Guitar FRFR use with Celestion F12-X200

Still would like to know if the Simplex WEdge would be a good fit for this speaker! :-)

Re: Simplex for Guitar FRFR use with Celestion F12-X200

Update: it was the speaker casket (the white cap on the back) that was rattling.
Celestion is going to pickup the speaker and investigate.

The speaker also will not fit the XF212, it is longer than a regular speaker.
About 4-5 cm deeper than my Celestion REbacks that I have in the XF212.

Re: Simplex for Guitar FRFR use with Celestion F12-X200

Did that, even more rattling... Really unusable in that cab. Its an old Marshall 8080 valvestate from which I removed the amplifier part, but the metal casing of the amplifier part is still in the cabinet. Perhaps I'll put it in the XF212, then at least I will know if it is the speaker itself that r...

Simplex for Guitar FRFR use with Celestion F12-X200

Hello, I bought the new Celestion F12-X200 FRFR speaker, which is a coaxial speaker but constructed as a guitar speaker rather then as a PA speaker: https://celestion.com/product/200/f12x200/ I have it built into an old open back cabinet I still had, but it sounds only good with the volume turned up...

XF212 with full range speakers ?

I was wondering if the XF212 would also be suited to be equipped with FRFR speakers for use with a modeller ? In particular, I'm looking at this speaker: https://celestion.com/product/200/f12x200/ Or should I look for one of the PA designs for this ? I have built an XFX212 equipped with Celestion Re...
