Re: I wish I had the opertunity to silence the critics!

A few years have rolled by but anybody heard any news from hifibob? I heard his club closed down, but what to do with the 20 Tuba 60s.

Cone Rocking

How strong is this effect and how does it impact the performance of bass reflex enclosures? Is it ever severe enough to cause coil rub? I noticed in the blurb to the Simplexx designs about balancing air pressure inside the box with multiple ports. I've also read about this on other forums. Many Mart...

Re: Look what I just got! Infinity 1042w

Well you could build the Tuba HT low profile. Why? Because the driver access panel is on the back end. I suppose you could make the 15" hole and also a temporary 2 x 10" baffle, that can be weather stripped behind the 15" speaker. I'm fairly confident the infinity drivers won't be completely unusabl...

What Tom said, a big ass corner loaded house shaking Table Tuba Long Style. Facebook marketplace is an addiction if you're not careful. You can end up emptying your bank account and turning your place into a hoarder house. I have two JBL GTO1264 12" woofers and an SPLX SPL10R 10" lounging around the...

Re: Added a third amplifier to my system!

Each Peavey IPR1600 uses 40 watts doing nothing. The SMSL SA98E uses .7 watts at 12 volt, 3 watts at 24 volt and about 6 at 36 volts. I've just used the 12 volt plug as 36 volts is very loud on sensitive Omnitop 12. Now if I could get a second one to run the subwoofers which would probably get quite...

Re: "Fast", "Punchy" and other such subjective terms used to describe bass

Why thank you! I wanted to capture the sound instead of people trying to guess the power of a system by how wet and raspy the fart sounds. Also there's no point in a video where the Bill Fitzmaurice stuff sounds no better than a horizontal array of unprocessed Skytec cabs driven to 5 x their rated p...

Re: Will a T60 hit as hard as a T48

Remember the Tuba is a ~4 ohm load and the Titan ~8 ohm give or take. Subtract about 3dB from the Tuba to see what they'd do at the same power draw.

Re: DIY LRAD, Security, Piezo Tweeter 10-40 KHZ

Hi. For humans, ear piercing frequencies are generally in the 1500-7000 Hz range. Personally I tend to find 3000 and 6000 particularly rough. Of course, playing these frequencies extremely loud at night is going to disturb the neighbours' sleep. Above 10kHz it can definitely be annoying, but unless ...

Re: "Fast", "Punchy" and other such subjective terms used to describe bass

I'm Tim, long time internet forum browser, but only a few builds as it is easy to end up filling a studio flat. From designs on here: A pair of Omnitop 12 and an Autotuba. However I have been interested in horns for quite some time (since hearing a load of the Funktion One bass cabs and liking the c...

Re: BFM cabs in a movie

Hopefully no BFM cabs in the fire pit. Also any tweeters in those old Peaveys (or a co-axial working with 3 similar mid-basses)?
I couldn't see exactly what stage monitors but definitely some T39/48 on sub duty and a Simplexx bass rig of some sort.

"Fast", "Punchy" and other such subjective terms used to describe bass

When used according to their direct definitions, there is no such thing as a "fast" subwoofer, it is simply meaning extended frequency response and having midrange that matches well to your subwoofer. The effect I'm talking about here has very little to do with the "speed" or acceleration of the con...

Re: TLAH Pro, non-spec cheap driver

P Audio E8 150s is cheaper than Alpha 8 in the UK, but that budget driver doesn't look optimised for powerful midrange - more for some warm thump in a domestic speaker.
