Re: TLAH Home theater build.

BTW, these were made from 1/2 MDF and weigh in at 32 pounds. That is very light for a standing speaker that could play 125 dB RMS. All the pieces were 1/2 inch, makes things much easier. My old JBL 4675C could play 129 dB and weighed 500 pounds. It could reach 30hz in room though but it was massive....

Re: TLAH Home theater build.

Yes, I use the TLAHs crossover with original parts and I use a Dayton 4.5k crossover with these. The eminence drivers are full range so I crossed them at a spot where the response was less smooth. These are not even my favorite tweeters, just the ones I had left over. I have enough parts lying aroun...

Re: TLAH Home theater build.

I have built a 4 ohm version with peerless square soft domes, the square ones. I really like how the dual ring radiators sound and my next one will be with those.

Re: TLAH Home theater build.

I am back at it again. I have been experimenting and building cabs and I really want to see if upgraded drivers can give the TLAH another level. It is already at the top but I don’t trust the flimsy tweeters as the motor can fall off from bad glue adhesives and it is just luck of the draw. I want to...

Re: TLAH Home theater build.

I have been experimenting using better quality drivers as well. There is a whole host of options and line arrays IMHO are the way to go, whether HT or two channel.

Re: TLAH Home theater build.

I had some friends comment that my theater in 2 channel with the TLAH sounds better than some of the 7.1 systems I have owned. All my systems were no slouches either! I have owned $200 per speaker to $3500 per speaker in here.

Re: TLAH Home theater build.

They will be angled or in a diagonal, not perpendicular.

Re: TLAH Home theater build.

I am looking for the tweeter wiring and don't see them, are they in the plans? I see all the woofer variations.

Re: TLAH Home theater build.

I was thinking of placing them horizontal across the ceiling at the proper Atmos positions. This way I would get the horizontal dispersion front to back of the theater rather than left to right.

Re: TLAH Home theater build.

Ok, so I just ordered from Leland the rest and also the SLA plans for my Atmos speakers. I need to get more binding posts as well. I have found that the blue disconnects from HD work well and can be squeezed just slightly for a tighter fit. Much better than the Lowes version for these drivers. The y...

Re: TLAH Home theater build.

I understand that but why do some CD/horn combos that can play extremely loud still sound harsh or not as smooth as these? They can actually play louder if need be than the TLAH. Maybe just the sound of the drivers? I don't think any of my other speakers had high THD as they were all high sensitive ...

Re: TLAH Home theater build.

It still gets loud but when I was playing them loud my wife commented how they did not hurt her ears. My 10 year old daughter told me to turn it down as it was too loud but it did not sound bad.

Re: TLAH Home theater build.

:clap: and you built them :clap: I know what you mean by the smoothness. For me the louder I turn them up the clearer it becomes. Never once at my house have we ever complained of any harshness. We use ours everytime we turn the tv (Element) on due to the tv having the suckiest speakers ever. :bash...
