Re: Tuba 30” driver question

Keith's IPA is the most popular beer in Nova Scotia. That tells you it's bland, as that's what most people prefer.
My favorite Canadian used to be Moosehead. I quit it because the antlers hurt. :loler:

Re: Tuba 30” driver question

American micro brews are OK. Bud, Miller and so forth have the same flavor going in and coming out.

That's a good reason for series wiring the drivers.

the TF1018 is originally designed to be used in PA systems.
I wouldn't use it for PA. Xmax is only 2mm, so it wouldn't go very loud before distorting. That xmax might be more than the Greenback, 1mm xmax isn't unusual with guitar drivers, but for PA 3mm is what I'd call the bare minimum.

Re: Simplexx 10 as a studio monitor?

The material the diaphragm is made of has no bearing on the sound, it's how it's made that counts. Soft domes don't work well in horns due to the high throat pressure. What's fatiguing is high level distortion. Since horns have much lower distortion than direct radiators they're inherently less fati...

The 0.15s I've got are supposedly +/-3%
That's not what I meant. The tolerance for crossover part values is +/-10%, so the coil can be as low as 0.27 or as high as 0.33.

Without full T/S specs for the Greenback one can't make a comparison.

Re: Compression horn for DR250 question

The rod should be flush, or very close to flush, with the leading edge of the horn.

Re: Church in a comedy club

It's complicated, because the exit of the horn isn't the only source. A CD horn, for instance, uses one flare shape at the throat and another at the mouth, trying to get sound waves to do what they'd rather not. Still, a horn that's vertically optimized works better than one that's horizontally opti...

Re: Church in a comedy club

it seems counter-intuitive that you can array them with the long axis vertically and still achieve wide horizontal dispersion. Intuition, as is very often the case with respect to audio, is wrong. The wider the source the narrower the dispersion. You can make horizontal horns that work reasonably w...
