Re: Hello from Southwest United Kingdom

The simplest top is the SLA, but the drivers might cost you the same, or more, as just one driver for the OTop12. You could also try the OTop8

Re: Finally Starting the Theater Build

About the connections on the filters, it's difficult to really tell since the photo detail is lacking a bit, even if I zoom in. Carefully look at each solder joint to see if it has flowed smoothly (good) or if there is a distinct ridge all the way around the solder (bad). I had a response all typed ...

Re: Bass reflex 18 more efficient than a Tuba 24?

1. I was commenting on a comment on the site that a Tuba with a 10 can outpower (e.g. more SPL) an 18 in a traditional cabinet. "Yet the Tuba is no larger than the competition". I checked the sales pages and the SPL charts of the different Tubas (24,30/45) and couldn't find that particular comment,...

Re: Finally Starting the Theater Build

I'm not sure exactly what you mean, but, it is okay to solder to those tabs. Pre-tin the items that you want to solder because it makes it easier to solder the items together (and put less heat into the joint).

And there ya' go. The old attached AC cable is gone and it's replaced with a new, modern IEC socket so that you can leave your AC cable at home and hope to borrow one at the gig....

Re: melded or compression

The advantage of the melded piezos is the wide coverage versus the CD, or any other cab for that matter.

Reading your projected plan, I was thinking that it would serve best to put one melded 1x12 on the bottom, and CDs for all the cabs on top.

Re: 40x52ft building want neighbors to hate me

Hi, and welcome to the forum! I suggest TLAHs. They can throw the sound to the other end of the shop. Place them on either side of the doors, tilted down, and toe'd in a touch. Am I right that the door(s) on the LH and RH side of the photo are one and the same? Oh, wait a minute, the camera is betwe...
