Re: SLA Pro Micro??

Would Eminence's fairly new 3-8 full range driver be suitable for this, or any other BFM designs? I was surprised when Don Keele found it very well suited to his array. The lack of need to buy parts for and wire in a crossover appeals to me. Qts .50 Sens 88.6 Xmax 2.4mm 150-20,000 30w 8 ohms https:/...

Re: Curved SLA depth

Isn't the curved design of the SLA center to provide crossfiring sound? How would a vertical orientation achieve that?

Re: Scaling way back! Lots of questions

You could fabricate simple white cloth slipcovers, with speaker cloth over the drivers, or have them made.

Re: T60 Build, problem with braces

A very basic lap joint would look better than that, and even have a little more contact area.

Re: Van conversion - Tuba 45 or 60?

The Autotuba can also take 10" drivers (if their Thiele-Small specs are within 10% of the recommended drivers.) You'll get a couple more dB out of that design, but not any lower extension.

Re: Van conversion - Tuba 45 or 60?

Do you know about the autotuba? It was designed specifically for vehicles. There's also a rather low profile truck tuba that may fit your space limitations, also.

Punk Rock bracelet

... And not for fashion sense, but for subversiveness. When can we expect the BFM design of these?

Re: Want to build first horn subs

(Not to derail the thread, but isn't bugga colloquial for bugger, which is slang for 'have relations with', which DOES work out to be 'F!") Totally working off of my knowledge gained through Benny Hill, Dave Allen at Large, Python, Jim Jeffries, etc.)

Re: What's to chat about?

Thank you Rich, I will definitely give that a try next time I cut poplar. OH, but if you're using a circular saw, flip that board over so the blade is cutting UP AGAINST the "good looking" side of the board. Now the outer sides and faces of a Tuba / Titan will have BOTH sides of them exposed, so fi...

Re: What's to chat about?

To reduce chipping, apply tape to your cut line, and scrape it on good with your thumbnail or a hunk of plastic like a credit card. Then put as full length of a ruler down as you have, clamp it down, and score that line with a fresh exacto / razor, right on the line. This pre-cuts the facing layer, ...
